Christian Antisemitism

While some might claim that things have been improving in the past few decades, it doesn't quite erase thousands of years of Christian antisemitsm. Today, many Christians claim that they are our best friends on one hand, while claiming "true Christians" would ever be antisemitic. Sadly, many Jews and Jewish organizations that benefit from Christian financial contributions also like to whitewash history and are negligent against Christian antisemitism (while somehow claiming, "NEVER AGAIN!")

1391 Seville, Spain. Archbishop Martinez lead the killing of 4,000 Jews. 25,000 Jews were sold as slaves. Their identification was made easy by the brightly colored "badges of shame" that all Jews above the age of ten had been forced to wear. 600 years later Hitler would enforce the same ruling.

Pope Pius X:  "In 1904 Theodor Herzl requested Pope Pius X's support for Zionism and the return of the Jewish people to their homeland.

1298, Germany. Over 100,000 Jews were massacred in Southern and Central Germany. The attacks were led by a Knight named Rindfleisch who pledged to exterminate "the accursed race of the Jews" upon hearing of alleged 'host desecration', an antisemitic canard whereby Jews allegedly insult the Christian Eucharist. The entire ancient Jewish community of Würzburg was wiped out.

In 1518, Martin Luther wrote his 95 Theses. The Reformation had begun. He saw Jews as a rejected people guilty of the murder of Christ. When his efforts to convert them failed, he wrote "On the Jews and their Lies" encouraging the destruction of synagogues, Jewish homes, enslaving Jews, expelling Jews and inciting the murder of Jews: "We ought to take revenge on the Jews and kill them." Hitler expressed a great admiration for Martin Luther, often quoting his works and beliefs.
