Reply To: Why is it important for Christians to keep the sad history of Christian antisemitism in mind when responding to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the present?

It is indeed very uncomfortable to confront anti Semitism among our fellow Christians and understand that older church members may have inherited bias from another era. It was not until 1965 that the Catholic Church for instance officially revoked its stance that the Jewish people carried a curse for killing Christ, and a little later John Paul II officially acknowledged the Catholic Church’s failings by Jews during the Holocaust.
