Congratulations Sword! You are back in your cozy track of inventing fascinating historic "facts" for supporting your untenable arguments. But let me ask you: can you be serious when you talk about the "barbarous treatment of the early Christians by their fellow Jews for being members of this burgeoning cult"? Where have you heard about it? Could you please enlighten us too? Or is it again just one of your "bright" baseless inferences thrown in for the sake of the argument?....Or another blood libel from ancient Christian traditions?

For your learned information, Christianity couldn't have existed before the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE by the Roman rulers when the last traces of Jewish sovereignty in their land was crushed. At those times, Christianity was another oppressed and victimized Jewish sect just like the rest of the Jews, but certainly not at the hands of "their fellow Jews". How could you try feeding us such nonsense?

"6 million Jews. FIFTY-FOUR million non-Jews. Both terrible statistics but for some reason only one of these figures is drummed into all of our heads from birth. Ad nauseum. Get some perspective."

Sword, you are absolutely right, you better GET SOME CORRECT PERSPECTIVE!

54 million non-Jews died in that damn war. They were either soldiers fighting for their respective sides or civilians who unfortunately happened to be in the wrong place.

AND SIX MILLION JEWS WERE DELIBERATELY MURDERED IN AN UNPRECEDENTED PREPLANNED INDUSTRIAL GENOCIDE ONLY BECAUSE THEY WERE JEWS!

Perhaps this is a good enough reason for one of these figures to get a special attention.

Submitting....
