    You write:

    I will admit that I've not studied the old testament much. When I have looked into it briefly, there is plenty of the hatred. Plenty that goes against what is taught by Jesus Christ. You'd think that a Christian would follow the teachings of Jesus and not those that were written before He was born. Teachings derived from what was followed by those who put Him to death.
    You do know that this is the traditional slur against the Jews, don't you? Think you might remove it?

    All it takes is security in your own civil rights to make you complacent.

      I do realise this, but I can think of no non-offensive way to point out how some of these 'Christians' use religion in the exact way that they complain of others following it.

      I tried to point out how I myself am no biblical scholar, but I do understand that much of what they insist on is written in some part or other of what they consider the entire bible to be.
      I guess what I was trying to point out is that I don't see why they consider teachings that have nothing to do with Christ as Christian.

      Let me try to tidy that up, I've never come into a crowd of violence demanding Jews in the Target parking-lot.

      read that a few times i still get an impression that has nothing to do with jews.

      does "teachings derived"  mean a formal derivative that jews followed?

      to me the whole thing is absurd because the guys (guys) that killed the guy were assholes, whoever or whatever version they were worshipping, and it's that version that these current assholes seem to be more enamored with in their gargantuan hypocritical way.

      seems to me the diarist is referring the hypocritical greedy haters being closer to the old testament, and that they were following the killers that killed their god rather than their christ, whatever they were.

      crap now i'm really confused and may be totally wrong.

      This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.

      I don't see any way to change what has already been posted. If I could, I'd remove the bolded sentence from above.
      If there is a way I am missing, please tell me.
