Vatican Cardinal Promotes Ecclesiastic Antisemitism

Cardinal Kurt Koch, the President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, has put "antisemitism" and the Mission to the Jews on the same level,

"It is important for me that [...] nobody on the Christian side may come up with the idea that anti-Semitism and anti-Judaism are in any way justified, and that Christian missionary work must or ought to be pursued", Koch wrote in a commentary for the German bishops' news agency KNA.

Koch contradicted Christ's mandate to convert Jews [and all the people] to the Church while commenting on a recent ambiguous text published by the former Benedict XVI.

Speaking for all Christianity, Koch insists that there may be no attempts to "evangelise" human beings of Jewish origin.

These theories are antisemitic because the exclude Jews from the Church and the salvation in Christ and they oppose the Church which started through evangelisation of the Jews and has practiced this ever since.

On aimerait bien connaître ce fameux texte de Ratzinger.

A philosopher [modern theologian, Cardinal] cannot talk about any single thing, down to a pumpkin, without showing whether he is wise or foolish; but he can easily talk about everything without anyone having any views about him, beyond gloomy suspicions.

No worries he is just supporting one of the tenants of Vatican II, ecumanism.

Don't talk in chimeric terms: antisemitism is a nothing invented to persecute anyone who the jews don't like or criticizes them.

Yeah, you know, the jews are sacred, they are saved by their DNA...That's why they deserve the universal empire, that the antichrist will obtain for them... You are spot on Koch, thank you!!!
