I don't get antisemitism
At least not when it’s coming from “Christians.”
Those folks have lost sight of the fact that Christianity started out as a Jewish cult. One of a multitude of cults within Judaism, from what I understand. Somehow this one got out of control. Today we’d say it went viral.
I guess the technical term for this would be “schism.” The birth of Christianity represented a schism within the Judaic belief system.
It wasn’t long before the usurpers infected vast swathes of the Roman Empire, and before you know it, the Jews who had masterminded the latest craze were turning on the Jews who didn’t sign up.
The passage of time has allowed a lot of your Christians to forget their roots. The usurpers have in the interval also suffered numerous schisms. In fact, the early days of Christianity were schism city all the way.
Then you had your big split in the main church, and after that Martin Luther invented protestants. The fact that the word “protest” is part of their name is an irony lost on most of them today.
All this schisming has thrown some real absurdities at the canvas of history. Look at “the Troubles” for example. They’re all white and they all love Jesus, but they’re ready to start a new war if this Brexit thing gives them the excuse.
And apparently the schisming continues to this day. I heard that one of the local Amish communities suffered a schism because the Bishop made a couple of the brothers swap farms. There may have been some coveting involved… the neighbours’s wife or ass or both.
Which underlines once again the fact that we’re just human, no matter how many schisms it took to make us who we are.
We’re all brothers in spite of the schisms.
