Jews, Church, & Civilization VII

INTRODUCTION

This is factually unsubstantiated, and most probably wildly exaggerated, and is indeed, the central incendiary charge employed against the Jews for almost two millennia, which ultimately doomed millions (of real, actual human beings).

Thus, the same 19 centuries–old inciting to riot polemic is reaffirmed, yet once again, post–Holocaust, in a document heralded as an ecumenical breakthrough.

The alleged Nostre Aetate “breakthrough” of course, is that my daughter, a Jewish–American college student in the 21st century, is not, according to the Vatican’s Nostre Aetate, to be held personally responsible for the execution of Jesus of Nazareth by Roman Prefect Pontius Pilate in the first century. Thus, after 17–20 centuries of fabricating the allegation that there even ever was a Sanhedrin Trial, the Catholic Church in 1965 via Nostre Aetate now “exculpates” my daughter from personal responsibility 20 centuries later for an action the Jews were not culpable of to begin with. That is the crux of the nefarious and convoluted Catholic Church spin–gambit here.

“Any alleged capital trial by the Sanhedrin of Jesus is thus a convenient historical fabrication.”
