What is so cloudy about a jew calling a jew the antichrist? Since Christ is a fictional character in their opinion, then it was meaningless

Huh??? Chris Collins is not a Jew. Where do you get your info from?

Jews don't consider Jesus to be fictional. They just don't accept that he was the Messiah. Jews believe Jesus himself would have been shocked to know that many people today view him as the Messiah. According to Judaism, Jesus was a Jewish man who was executed and later given divine status by the Christian church.

If you are not a Jew, or from any other group, who for thousands of years have been persecuted....you'll never be able to understand what it's like.

Intelligent response (Life Coach)....a few facts throw you off your game? Again....Chris Collins is not Jewish. Therefore your claim that it was a Jew calling another Jew the "anti-christ" is FALSE!

So he called Silver the "Anti Christ". Might not be far from the truth. It certainly does not offend me.

What's scary is that they see absolutely nothing wrong when someone says something like this.

Disagree with people all they want....but when they start throwing in racial or religious epithets or sexist comments a line is crossed.

If you don't find anything offensive about what Chris Collins said...or for that matter anybody who uses another person's race, color or religion...then obviously YOU are "they."
