Rabbi Aryeh Spero of Caucus for
Barry Farber's article Jews for Christmas had a surprising effect on me. He is so bold in his advocacy for "a vigorous movement of American Jews rising up to make sure nobody pushes around those Christians whose ancestors decided, for the first time in history, to make a unique wonderland like America, where nobody gets pushed around..." and it made me realize, that not only has it become open season on Christians, but that we have been standing alone...until recently.

In a growing supposedly 'tolerance-led' society, people are concerned about offending everyone from homosexuals to illegal aliens. But how many are concerned about offending Christians? And for those who aren't, why not? Increasingly, Americans and Christians are portrayed as the cause of much of the world's ills, both here at home and abroad.
Happily, Christians have found an ally in a growing number of Jews, such as Don Feder, President of Jews Against Anti-Christian Defamation, who said, "We understand that Christians are the last remaining obstacle to the moral deconstruction of America. Christians are under assault because of the values they embrace. But the morality of Christianity is also the morality of Judaism. By maintaining their loyalty to the eternal values revealed at Sinai, Christians have become pariahs in the eyes of the establishment, but heroes in our eyes."
Wow. When was the last time you read or heard
something like that?
