Jews do profit when non jews are christians.

Otherwise jews would never get smart gentile people believe in the bible or that jews are supposed to be a "chosen race"

It's ONLY because of christianity that jews get so much of influence and financial support in Isreal.

So if i were jews i would watch out what you said - You might piss enough of people of so they would turn away from Christianity.

Those zionist christians are the only reason why some americans still give moral support to Isreal.

When you lose that you lose all moral support in USA because they are fed up with you.

We know that jews have possesed the US governments, and do work to ban weapons and try to plunge USA to war with arabic countries.

Claim: Xmas' is a modern, disrespectful abbreviation of the word 'Christmas.'

FALSE


Origins: The abbreviation of 'Xmas' for 'Christmas' is neither modern nor disrespectful. The notion that it is a new and vulgar representation of the word 'Christmas' seems to stem from the erroneous

belief that the letter 'X' is used to stand for the word 'Christ' because of its resemblance to a cross, or that the abbreviation was deliberately concocted "to take the 'Christ' out of Christmas."

Actually, this usage is nearly as old as Christianity itself, and its origins lie in the fact that the first letter in the Greek word for 'Christ' is 'chi,' and the Greek letter 'chi' is represented by a symbol similar to the letter 'X' in the modern Roman alphabet. Hence 'Xmas' is indeed perfectly legitimate abbreviation for the word 'Christmas'(just as 'Xian' is also sometimes used as an abbreviation of the word 'Christian').

None of this means that Christians (and others) aren't justified in feeling slighted when people write 'Xmas' rather than 'Christmas,' but the point is that the abbreviation was not created specifically for the purpose of demeaning Christ, Christians, Christianity, or Christmas — it's a very old artifact of a very different language.

I don't realy think that jews wish for americans to become atheist or pagan.

And i certainly don't think they want americans to become jews. Jews think they are holy and a chosen race - thats why they don't evangalize.

they rather want to stay within the family so to speak.

Christianity is not original at all. Christianity is a copy of the pagan scandianian Yule.

Hey thanks.

Now I can too.

I wonder if something changed - maybe on my end.

I have Explorer.

Interesting article too.

It seems just folks are just waiting around to be insulted or persecuted.

We all need to get over it.

It's all good.

Boys let us get back on track. So, Cunti, Frijoles and Ricky please address what comes next.

Step 1--- A school has long established policies with respect to disciplinary matters.

Step 2---A new Board assumes governance.

Step 3--- The existing principal makes the following declaration at a staff meeting, several months after the new Board has been in place.

DECLARATION:
In matters of discipline I have borne in mind that its procedures/policies are put in place by the board independent of the executive management of the school . I have therefore undertaken on no occasion to prescribe the procedures suited to it, but have left them, as the new board found them

TASK: Please explain ALL of the above as clearly as you are capable of doing.

Judaism is a system of beliefs and behaviors. Jews are a people. You cant be a member of a system of beliefs and behaviors. Its an abstraction. Thats like saying Communists are a member of Communism.
In my mind I had moved on but I shall revisit the matter for a short time.

In doing so, I have ONE thing that I require of you and that you speak HONESTLY on the points being raised.

Now, do you have a problem with members of a religion being called by a word that clearly IDENTIFIES and links them to that particular religion?

Huggy

You have failed to explain why you choose wrath (a deadly sin) over "doing unto others as you would have them do unto you" (not as they did unto you).

And how about turning the other cheek?

What would your savior say of your approach of vengeance?

HughBe--- Absolutely NOT but I am a far BETTER person that the overwhelming MAJORITY of the human family.

Why do you say this?

And didn't Jesus preach humility?

thanking you in advance for your thoughtful reply
