Some Jews love Darwinism because they hate Christian fundies

This blog has previously noted that some Jews and Jewish organizations are strongly opposed to any criticism of Darwinism. Jews and Jewish organizations have often been co-plaintiffs and submitted supporting amicus briefs in lawsuits against teaching or even mentioning criticisms of Darwinism in the public schools. And Abraham Foxman, head of the Anti-Defamation League, bitterly denounced a TV program about Social Darwinism's influence on Nazism. I assert that the reason for many Jews' fanatical love of Darwinism is their hatred of Christian fundies. These Jews associate anti-Darwinism with the Christian fundies' efforts to break down the separation of church and state and turn the USA into a "Christian" nation. A Time article gives the following description of paranoid Jewish hatred of Christian fundies:

In early November 2005, the Prime Minister of Iran stated his intention to wipe Israel off the map. At almost exactly the same time, leaders of the American Jewish community declared war on the Christian Right.

Abe Foxman, head of the Anti-Defamation League, issued the first call to arms. The Jews, he said, faced an organized, sophisticated coalition of enemies. He described as "openly arrogant" the supposed Evangelical goal: "To Christianize us, to save us!" Within a few weeks, Rabbi Eric Yoffie, leader of the liberal Reform Movement, America's largest Jewish denomination, and Rabbi James Rudin of the ultra-establishment American Jewish Committee, reprised Foxman's complaint.

Never before in U.S. history had Jewish leaders shown such bold hostility toward Evangelical Christians, the largest Protestant community in America and, by most measures, the most philo-Semitic and pro-Israel. In normal times, this would be paradoxical. In an age of jihad it was dangerously perverse.

. . . . . .The Democratic party, with its many Jewish activists, has traditionally supported Israel. But the Republicans have no such ethnic affinity. It is the Evangelicals, major stakeholders in the G.O.P., who have made it a bastion of pro-Israel and pro-Jewish sentiment.

This is quite comical, given that the Biblical creation story is the Jewish creation story.

Yeah, I suppose that they teach in Hebrew schools that Genesis is false. LOL

Also, biblical creationism does not contain anything specific about Christianity, so even teaching biblical creationism by itself would not be Christian proselytizing.

Darwinists like to brag that evolution is often taught in Catholic schools. But Catholic schools are often full-time schools, in contrast to Hebrew schools, which are generally just supplementary schools. So evolution is taught in Catholics schools because it is generally something that the students need to know (e.g., evolution theory is used in cladistic taxonomy).

The hypocritical Anti-Defamation League calls the Kitzmiller v. Dover decision a "victory for students." Wrong -- it is bad for students to teach them that this kind of censorship is OK.

IMO the ADL and the NAACP should be classified as hate groups.

Anonymous, I warned that any comment containing gossip about my private life would be deleted.

>>>>>> One one hand, it is no surprise, as there are Christians who accept evolution. And of course, the title begs the question, So what? Maybe some Jews would like to fry IDers in canola oil during the high holy days. Maybe some Jews dream of firebombing the Discovery Institute headquarters (does such a place even exist)? It is in any case a shameful attempt at stereotyping a cultural group's views in a simple-minded attempt to silence any statment made by the group through a not-so-clever ad hominem attack (precisely the kind of attack that the site administrator complains about excessively while demonstrating, once and again, that he does not understand them). <<<<<<<

I did not stereotype any group -- I said "some" Jews.

Could you perhaps explain why, as a Jew, you demonstrate such hatred for your people?

I assume that this post will also be deleted.

The posts stay on long enough for us to see what you are deleting. Contrary to your claims, it is outright censorship, not at all connected to what you claim of Ed Brayton.

What a hypocrite!

Speculation about the religious beliefs or affiliations of others is gossip, and I do not like gossip on this blog, particularly when the gossip is about me. Take heed.

You have several times falsely accused me of censorship on this blog. As I said, if your comments mysteriously disappear, just resubmit them.

is still at the top of your blog, I am dismayed that you deleted my comment. I don't know you, I know nothing about you except what has been written on your blog.

You have no business deleting posts and then saying "there is no censorship" when clearly there is. Go fuck yourself.

Here is the part of your comment that was deleted, jerko --

"Some Jews love Darwinism because they hate Christian fundies"

One one hand, it is no surprise, as there are Christians who accept evolution. On the other, it sounds like an Onion title to me, just like "Local idiot runs blog. Local unemployed, semiretired, unsuccessful litigator Larry Fafarman reports great satisifaction at running his own blog after being repeatedly banned at other web sites...."


This is gossip and an ad hominem attack. My general no-deletions policy in no way obligates me to accept this kind of crap. If you don't like the way I run my blog, then good riddance.

VIW, speculating about the truth of a speculation about a person's religion is also gossip. As I said, I don't allow gossip here.

Dimwit, stating a known truth is not speculation.

If you want to censor my comments, please have the integrity not to then comment about them. If people did not know you, it might mislead them as to what was said. Since they do know you, they just assume that you are misinterpreting things.

You stupid fathead, whether or not you think it is true, it is still gossip.

>>>>> If you want to censor my comments, please have the integrity not to then comment about them. <<<<<<

So you would prefer it if I just deleted your posts without comment? I can do that too.
