Spitting on Christians, good/bad?

Something never reported in the US press & here I ask why?
Rabbi’s think that they can spit the Catholics away----
Rabbi David Rosen is a talented and respected rabbi, originally from the UK.
Since in some circles it seems to be more encouraged to spit on Christian clergymen than build bridges (this week's events in the Old City), Rabbi Rosen is unpopular with Eskin and his ilk.

Okay.

Why must one? All global events considered, I don't think spitting ranks very high on anyone's list of newsworthy events. What would surprise me is if it did happened to be mentioned. Kind of ranks right up there with people using F-word: who cares? So in as much as there are far more important matters that require valuable print space and audio-visual time I'm pleased that I'm spared reading and hearing about such inane "spitting" incidents. Thank you US news organizations.

I reckon that's bad.

Just like it's bad to murder abortion providers.

Just like it's bad to deny homosexuals their 'inalienable' rights.

Just like it's bad to threaten folks with an eternity in Hell simply cause they think Christian notions of right and wrong are all messed up.

While I can't speak for the media, I can sure say I don't find this news worthy in the slightest. I do find it funny; people who claim to be 'working for' the all loving deity and all they can do it get into each others' business, being hateful and rude?!?
Maybe Comedy Central should cover it? Or the 700Club (ugh what a waste of airtime)
But the media? Not necessary.
Have a great, potentially godless, day!

Perhaps, but I'd say this is a bit worse than spitting:
Religious Persecution

The Syrian Christian community, one of the oldest in the world, is under attack by IS (Islamic State), as are other religious groups like Shia Muslims and Yazidis. Many Christians have been ordered to convert to Islam, pay a religious tax, or face death. There are 4,841,305 registered Syrian refugees who have fled both religious persecution at the hands of the Islamic State and the general chaos in Syria.

I did a google search on "orthodox jews spitting on christians" and the fifth listing revealed this:
"Spitting incident fuels debate on intolerance - The New York ...https://www.nytimes.com › World › Africa

Oct 19, 2004 — Spitting on Christian clergy by ultra-Orthodox Jews is a relatively common occurrence in the Old City, said Wadie Abunassar, an Israeli Arab Roman Catholic who worked for the Latin patriarch here. "Jerusalem is supposed to be a city for ecumenicism - it's supposed to be," Abunassar said."
The answer to your question is YES, the American press has covered this.

In accordance to the do unto others clause.

I'll not suffer me such a flagrantly deceitful tactic.

The liar lies, and the preacher preaches!


That said, y'all Jews now, don't be aspitting on the Christians just cause they stuffed y'all into the ovens!

Are ya good now thomasdixon? Will ya get you some comfort now that I gave them Jews the what for?

I have nothing against Jews or any one else for that matter.

I get no comfort at the murder of anyone, period.

What I do get is a disgusting, revolting feeling when I read about all the innocent children murdered by the Israelis.
I will feel a great sadness and grief when the neighboring countries unite against Israel and wipe them from the face of this earth.
Yet they could still be saved if they repent, confess their sins and ask the Lord for forgiveness
Having said that, I do not believe they will and what is inevitable will be
:thanks:

I'm assuming you hope it is, God makes Christians them better and more efficient ovens.

"I know, let's light all the Muslims on fire, and use that to barbecue us every dang Jew we can't terrorize us into becoming a Christian, cause there's so many of them dang dirty Jews, us Christians ain't got us no time to stuff em all in the ovens it is, we hope God provides."

Neutral. I'm with Miles on this one. If you are in the majority, and you get spat on, keep walking. It's not news and no one cares or ought to care. What sort of physical harm did you suffer? None. It's just a loogie. Wipe it off. It's only as important or demeaning or gross as you make it. Realistically you're not going to get sick, and that's the only possible way it would qualify as assault.

In the specific instance that this is a part of a larger system of oppression, and the majority is spitting on the minority, then yes, it's something that ought to turn heads, because it's something that needs to stop immediately. This may well apply to the Christian minority living in Muslim countries if people start spitting on them.

What I will say is that this is a case of Good Guy Syndrome (GGS). Historically Jews have always been victims, oppressed, bullied, roasted, and expelled. If a Jewish state is up to no good, as it certainly seems to be with Palestinians, nobody's going to stand up to the perpetual victims because then they feel like the bad guy. And without that pullback of correction, you can't really blame Israel for what it does. They think what they do is good, because that's all anyone ever says.

People with a lot of power can also get GGS. And I don't just mean political or military power. Take little Anthony from an episode of The Twilight Zone. He was born with amazing psychokinetic powers, and because he could annihilate people who p'd him off, nobody ever corrected him and he came down with the worst case in history of GGS. It's not his fault; this is simply what leads to the condition. There is no cure.
