Where was Foxman when Eisner and Weinstein (Miramax) were mocking Lent in "40 days and 40 nights"?

You won't find a Jewish composer, actor or writer who worked for Disney, who supports this smear. But it says quite a bit about you that you're pushing it.
For instance, when some leftist was on an LA radio show flinging this mud, one of the Rogers brothers called in (the brothers, who happened to be Jewish, who wrote a lot of Disney's music, such as for Mary Poppins) and said it was crap.

You don't see Judaism reviled in the movies

What about the ferociously films Kadosh and A Price Above Rubies portraying Hasidic Jews as loathesome criminals? Made by Israelis no less.

"money isn't their motive, hatred of christianity is."

I am unable to see into the state of mind of these folks to determine motive, but I still suspect money. I can't say that these three are for certain not anti-Christian any more than you can say for certain that they are anti-Christian.

Christians need to make it unprofitable for these folks to make anti-Christian materials by speaking out and using the power of the market place.

Fair enough. I admit I'm just repeating what I've read about Walt Disney being anti Semitic. I will look more into it. So thanks again.

As I implied in my previous post, most mockers are enemies of all religions.

You simply have no evidence for that assertion, when they only mock Christianity.

Sez it all. I will look some more into Walt Disney, who please make no mistake I have infinite respect for his life accomplishments. Golden age of Disney was when Walt was in charge.

'The difference between you and me is that I can point to theit anti-christian movies; that's pretty strong evidence that they're anti-christian. You can't point to anything that counters the evidence of their own consistent and persistent work product.

I also long for the old days. I also wish that Rabbi Lapin's influence would spread.

TO LUMP ALL THREE PEOPLE (AND ALL OTHERS LIKE THEM)IN ONE CATEGORY IS NOT RIGHT.

Yes it is. Because Foxman claims the status of a tribune against bigotry, and in this instance, "bigotry" from hollywood. But the most consistent Hollywood purveyors of bigotry have been Disney and Miramax, in their anti-christian films, but Foxman has been silent on them. This exposes him as a fraud, who lives by a double standard.

I challenge you to name PROMINENT christian leaders in politics, society or business - - people comparable in status to eisner or weinstein - - who would dare mock Judaism the way eisner and weinstein (and much of the rest of Hollywood) routinely mock Christianity.

I don't know of any currently, but this article details some frightening statements.

"When convenient, Hitler and his Nazi henchmen dredged up the anti-Semitic writings of an elderly Martin Luther to justify their hatred for Jews." If this is true then Martin Luther is one prominent leader from the past.

"There is no innocent blood of Jewish children in the world. All Jewish blood is guilty. You have to die. This is the punishment that has been awaiting you because of that sin [of deicide]," he replied." From a slovakian papal nuncio, whatever that is. But we could possibly assume a higher level Catholic official?

There are some ugly things said in this writing that I have no reason to doubt. There are some hugely ugly things said by Chrysostom, beloved of the Orthodox (my) church.

How can the Jewish people know these things and not be worried? What an opportunity we have to show them the real love of Christ. Instead I see some posters here turning on them and saying they hate us.

My point has to do with the kind of bigotry that we see today, not 500 years ago with Luther or 1800 years ago with a church father. Today - - as you point out - - - American business and cultural leader who happen to be christian, at least nominally, do NOT mock, ridicule or defame Judaism --- thank God. But there are quite a few business leaders who happen to be Jewish - in Hollywood - - who make a nonstop practice of denigrating Christianity. Yet we hear nothing in protest from Foxman and the others who are libeling Gibson and his movie.

As for fears about persecution - - I remind you again that the two teens who shot up Columbine appeared to have been gunning for christians in particular. In fact, in the video they made before the event they curse Jesus and some of the christian students, for being christian. Now, do you think that some of the anti-christian stuff out of Hollywood might feed such vicious mindsets? I suggest you start thinking about the possibility that Jews aren't the only ones who should be worried when bigotry in the media raises its head (indeed, christians might have even more reason to be worried, because there's more media bigotry against christianity than against any other religion (though you wouldn't know it to hear Foxman)

They vote against our interests over 80% of the time......

4:1 ratio

Let's suppose that is a mere coincidence.



And vote with our wallets against them over 80% of the time.


..


Foxman and his weird corrupted ADL are dividing Jews from their only true friends; a majority of Christian Americans on an increasingly hostile and dangerus planet.


Over 75% majority being told how to read and interpret their own religion by a self-annointed sleazy little bookburner.


Make that "Gospel Burner".


"Thou shalt not make a Christian motion picture"

"It would be anti-Semetic......"



Well pardon me, just let me tell you what you can believe in the Old Testaments.


A losing strategy.




Think Vegas odds.


Add time.



A stupid act of deliberate suicide.


..


Congrats Abe, you Christian hater!



You have turned me off over 80% so far.




Keep it up.......




You are becoming THE INVISIBLE MAN


..


Sorry, the line is busy.......

"Thou shalt not make a Christian motion picture"

Indeed!! That is exactly what it's all about. I simply can't wait till this movie opens and see the reactions!!

Foxman, et al., didn't criticize Gibson's movie as sacrilege .... heck, I've seen dozens of movies that made light of Jewish religious ceremonies and nobody bitched about that aspect of them .... Gibson's movie is being criticized because of fears it will provoke ethnic hatreds.

I think it's more than that. Gibson's critics fear that "The Passion of the Christ" will create both more Christians and more passionate ones (including some who will actively oppose Hollywood's attempts to turn America into the Weimar Republic).
