So the War on Christians conference has been convened. This Washington Post (free registration required) piece highlights what you might expect to come from it: concern over sexual decadance of American Culture, abortion, a so-called attack on the institution of marriage, American religious pluralism.
But I just don’t know what to make of this: Jewish speakers likening this War on Christians to the Holocaust experience of the Jews in 20th century Germany:
Much of the conference revolved around the difficulty of Christian parenting in a culture of sexual permissiveness. Don Feder, founder of a group called Jews Against Anti-Christian Defamation, urged the crowd not to blame “the liberal, self-hating Jews in Hollywood.”
“Remember, the people in this audience are more Jewish than people like Barbra Streisand, because you embrace Jewish values, she doesn’t,” he said. Another Jewish speaker, Michael Horowitz, told the conference that the “Christian decency of this country” saved him from becoming “a bar of soap” in Nazi Germany.
“You guys have become the Jews of the 21st century,” said Horowitz, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute in Washington, just before a false alarm interrupted his speech. Several attendees called the fire alarm suspicious, though a hotel spokesman said it resulted from a mechanical problem in a distant location.
That’s just bizzaro. Boggles the mind.
