If in fact Jeffress is an Anti Semitic, I guess that would make him an up standing member of the democratic party

Eh . . . kind of hard to back up an assertion like that with any data. 2012 Exit polls showed Jews voting for Obama by 40 points. (70% Obama, 30% Romney.) I find it hard to believe that 70% of Jews would support the standard bearer of an anti-semitic party if that party were truly anti-semitic.

Maybe that's a typo and you meant to type "Republican"?

You must admit that most anti-Israel rheteroic comes from Democrats. Remember Mrs. Clinton hugging Mrs. Arafat.

I think you see anti-semitism on the left and right, honestly.

Also, I do think there's a difference between disliking Israeli policies and disliking Israeli people. Just as an analogy, I'm sure most people here hate new American policies (since Obama is in charge), but those people aren't anti-American, they just disagree with the government. So you can disagree with Netanyahu, instead supporting someone else, and not "hate the Jews."

So given the mix, I think the proof point is: what do Jews themselves actually think? And sure enough, 70% support the Ds, 30% support the Rs. That's a huge gap.

Yes, it's a huge gap. Very few Jewish Americans can articulate why they voted for Obama.

Anti-semetic doen't always mean "anti-jew." There are Jews by heritage only who only claim the designation for political capital, as their entry card to a grievance group. Most of these are actually atheists, at least in conduct.

Then there are true Jews, the ones who try to follow the Torah and actually believe in God. These understand the anti-semetic nature of the Dem party and voted for Romney.

Gay rights activists are demanding Tim Tebow back out of a speaking engagement at Liberty University just two weeks after pressuring the New York Jets quarterback to cancel a speaking engagement at the First Baptist Church of Dallas.

Tebow is expected to speak this weekend at Wildfire – a men’s conference hosted by the conservative Christian university. His remarks will be closed to the general public.

The professional football player is well-known for sharing his faith in Christ – but in recent weeks he’s come under fire from the national media and gay rights activists for speaking in churches that follow...
