GUEST,Dreaded Guest BS: What is Anti-Semitism? (263* d) RE: BS: What is Anti-Semitism? 28 Apr 03

The DNA argument...I recall reading how we could all be traced back to a common female in Africa. Eve. Millions of years ago. Remember that? So that makes me, a white guy in Texas, in reality a black woman from Africa. Yeah...DNA is a GREAT argument for settling theological discussions.

Musicmic is a good case in point of what I'm talking about. And I don't know, but Jews should be worried about passing protectionary laws, even if they benefit Jews for the moment. There are a lot more non-Jews in America, and we are going a bit fascist in our governmental ways, it seems. It's open season on Arabs right now, but who's next? Arabs are semites too, according to Merriam-Webster, and are Jews filing lawsuits to stop Arab children from being beaten to death at Camp X-Ray in Guantanamo? If not, then THAT is anti-semitism.

And it WAS Schweiker I was thinking of. Of course the fundamentalist site I saw that article on made a lot bigger deal out of it than is described by Sinsull, but damn, people SHOULD make a big deal out of the restriction of freedom of speech. The preacher I heard talking about Schweiker signing the legislation said it DID extend to speech and a church could be closed because of preaching against homosexuals. I'd have to go back and look at the wording of the bill, but I think the preacher was right. And that's just plain un-American. The preacher should be allowed to talk however he wants, and then pay the PERSONAL consequences. Have his business or church boycotted, lose his radio show because of a drop in advertising revenue, etc. But he shouldn't be fined by the govt. The govt cannot restrict freedom of speech in the US.

I just wanted to clarify what anti-semitism was, and suddenly I'm a Jew basher. Lots of touchy people in the world.
