Indiana bishop deplores anti-Semitism
February 25, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: “Unfortunately, there has been a rise in recent years of anti-Jewish and anti-Semitic rhetoric in our society,” said Bishop Kevin Rhoades of Fort Wayne —South Bend. “Further, there have been incidents of violence incited by hateful speech about Jews. The Church has firmly condemned such rhetoric and violence.” The Algemeiner Journal reported that the bishop’s words were “an oblique but thoroughgoing rebuke to the Jew-hatred” promoted by a writer who lives in his diocese.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).

Perhaps in the West the anti-religious rhetoric is visible mostly in one direction, but the opposite is true in Israel. How many acts of intolerance, intimidation, exclusion, destruction, and other forms of violence are perpetrated against Christians in the Holy Land? One need only follow the news reports in this forum from Christian sources in the Holy Land and throughout the Middle East to develop a broader perspective. From a Jewish perspective, worship of a false idol can never be condoned.
