Selections from Sungenis’ Piece on the Jews for People who Don’t have Time to Read Endless Internet Tomes

Numerous people have briefly scanned the Sungenis piece and then written me asking, “What’s the big deal? He’s critical of the bishop’s dumb “Reflections” document which wiggle waggle all over the place and can’t seem to make up it mind about whether Jews should be presented with the gospel or not? Why are you upset?”

I’m upset because Bob doesn’t seem to be able or willing (take you pick) to content himself with criticizing the bishop’s document (something I myself have done). No. He can’t just say, “The bishops should have been clearer that Christ is the only savior and that the Church is bound to evangelize the world without exceptions.” Instead, he has to go out and find the most vile collection of ancient falsehoods about the Jews that he could find and cut ‘n paste them into his screed without a moment’s reflection and without, apparently, ever stopping to wonder if they were any more accurate than a Jack Chick tract portrayal of the Catholic Church. To wit,

“The Talmud is an assortment of every subject imaginable. Unfortunately, it is filled with obscenities and blasphemies of the highest order. It seeks to reverse many biblical moral teachings on theft, murder, sodomy, perjury, treatment of children and parents. It has an unrelenting and virtually insane hatred of Christ, Christians and every aspect of Christianity.”

Smears refuted here.

“Talmudic laws discriminate against the non-Jew, ranking them as human animals.”

Smear refuted here and here.

“Gitten has some other interesting commentaries. In Gitten 56b-57a it speaks about the punishment of Christ in hell. In Gitten 51a and Sanhedrin 106b Jesus is referenced under the name of Balaam, the false prophet of Israel.”

Smear refuted here.

“In the section known as Moed, there are various other unpleasantries. Seder Nashim contains the most vile filth and obscenities. Kethuboth (on the sum due a wife who is divorced) occupies 2 volumes in the Soncino edition with 728 pages of sexual perversions (e.g. a baby girl being fair prey for adult men): “When a grown up man has intercourse with a little girl it is nothing, for when the girl is less than three years old it is as if one puts the finger into the eye-tears come to the eye again and again, so does virginity come back to the little girl under three years.” (Kethuboth 11b; Exh. 180).”

Smear refuted here.

“In the section known as Nashim, the Seder Nezikin (damages), contains the Baba Kamma (the first gate), which is 719 pages of Talmudic ramblings, including a general law of damages that teaches that destroying Gentile property is permissible; but doing the same to Jewish property is like assaulting the Divine, for only “Jews” are men but non-Jews rank as animals.”

Smear refuted here.

“The Nazir contains vows of hair-splitting judgments, and the Kol Nidre oath — an oath made on the Day of Atonement which allows the Jew to break any promise or oath he may make during the coming year.”

Smear refuted here.

This is but a sample of what Bob chose to publish. There’s a lot more where that came from. However, it’s close to the bottom of his ponderous tome and most people, happily, do not choose read his article because they have better things to do like take a nap.

By the way, kudos to Shawn McElhinney and others in my comments box for rebutting the one or two boobs attempting to defend this trash. I’m happy to see that there are a lot more of Shawn and his kind than there are low rent defenders of swill worthy of Der Sturmer.

Oh! Dear me, did that offend? Well, offended people can always take their defenses of trash elsewhere. I can manage without them. Then they needn’t be offended. But on this blog, they will get the scorn they deserve.
