'Catholics, Jews share inseparable bond' Like in S-M?
The Roman Catholic Pope is gearing up for his visit to Israel with statements like "Catholics, Jews share inseparable bond."
I admit that I'm neither a history expert nor one in christian theology, but according to the facts I do know, the ongoing relationship between the Roman Catholic Church and the Jewish People can best be described as sado-masochistic. For two thousand years there have been a series of attacks both physical and ideological by the church on Jews as a People, religion and individuals.
The church has been the aggressor and the Jewish People the victim. They've tried everything in their power to wipe us out, like Haman of olde. Now, they're trying sweetness and kindness. And that's the most effective, unfortunately. The Jewish People are so emotionally damaged that too many are susceptible to anybody bringing gifts, even gifts labeled "Trojan Horses."
