"The Passion of the Christ"

Mel Gibson's Two Movies
By Dennis Prager
"It is crucial for Jews and Christians to try to understand what version of 'The Passion' the other is watching and reacting to."

"It is essential that Christians understand this. Every Jew, secular, religious, assimilated, left-wing, right-wing, fears being killed because he is Jewish. This is the best-kept secret about Jews, who are widely perceived as inordinately secure and powerful. But it is the only universally held sentiment among Jews."

As a Witch I can understand that. Of course I choose to be a Witch. Jews don't really get a choice.

The Anti-Defamation League is keeping track of backlash.

Although I find the Christian support for Israel more disturbing. These "End Times" Christians are really scary.

I am a Jew and a Witch AND I have complete free will in both matters. I would ask you to please clarify the above statement before I get really upset about it and start denouncing you for ignorance. ;-)

I don't mean any offence.

About Jews not having a choice: traditionally being a Jew is hereditary. One can of course choose not to practice, and it is possible for goyem to convert, and there are Jews who choose to convert to other religions. But people who choose to oppress Jews have tended to stick with the hereditary definition. The Nazis killed people of Jewish ethnicity regardless of faith. And when Christians were burning Jews for heresy they didn't trust Jews who converted to Christianity. People who are born Jewish can voluntarily choose to change religion but they can't move themselves out of the endangered minority anymore than African Americans can choose not to be discriminated against.

About Witches having a choice: My parents are not Witches, they aren't any religion at all. I know that I could have chosen to just go along with everyone else and call myself a Christian and no one would ever question that. The only way anyone would know I was a Witch is because I tell people I am. Even people who claim to be hereditary Witches claim that they kept their Witchcraft a secret for centuries. Right now the only way for anyone to know that someone else is a Witch is for the Witch to say so.

Re: I don't mean any offence.

Thnk you for clarifying! It didn't seem like you to mean anything offensive, but I had to be sure.
