No, your link does not work, and yes, others are having problems with it.

Here is what I get:

The requested object does not exist at the specified location. The link you followed is either outdated, inaccurate, or the server has been instructed to not let you have it.

<quoted text>"and you might want to get a better accuracy about accusing bg of talking to nixon about "satanic jews" he never used that phrase and was quoting a verse in the book of revelation that says that there are those who claim to be Jews who are liars, and that they belong to a "synagogue of Satan."
written of course by the apostle john who like Christ was a jew.
he was also honored by the American Jewish Committee in 1977 for promoting Protestant-Jewish relations over the past quarter century.
hardly fits your subtle accusation of him being anti-semetic."
so i see that you have backed off of your original accusation when it was proven to be a grave distortion of the truth. now you are fishing with another accusation. really? how about a link so that we can see the context?
Barry, you haven't responded to the question at hand, a direct quote from Graham about what Jews "are doing to this country".
In any case, Graham did refer to "satanic Jews", no matter the source.
The overall issue here is Graham's bigotry, against Jews and other religions, whom he consigned to "the fires of hell". Not only is Graham a bigot, but an ignorant zealot whose sanity is in question.

isn't that just the inherent divisivness of religion being shown for its true nature?

Had he been in Germany in his youth Billy would have carried out executions of Christ killing Jews with zeal.

I proved it beyond a shadow of a doubt-- ALL the bits in Josephus' writings that mention your ficiontal jesus, are in the WRONG LANGUAGE.
Why is this so very hard for you to grasp?
The language used, was TOO NEW, to have been written by Josephus.
There really is no two ways about it-- it's a fraudulent passage, written by people who lie for a living.
You know.
You Genuine Christians™
Now go and lie some more, why don't you? Lying is your sole reason to exist, after all.
You're probably aware that Richard Carrier argues that the passage may have been written by Josephus but he was actually writing about Jesus Ben Sira (I think that's the right name, there were so many dudes named Yeshua back then).

Thanks, but I was unaware he was taking that particular dodge.

I really only skim most of his shyte, as not being worth the time to read.

:)

He's become rather a bore, so I've started skipping over the majority of his whining.

especially when you can't do basic math or read and comprehend the one site that you posted as evidence. perhaps that would explain why you shy away from attempting to post sites to support your claim.

so which is it. the passage must be a forged addition or it was talking about someone else? it surely must be one of the two because otherwise it would disprove your claims.
