Andrew Sullivan - They "are just doing their job".
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, September 03, 2008

Blaming what's been written and said about Sarah Palin and her children on, well, Palin and her children via "the McCain campaign", Sullivan uses the Nuremberg defense to excuse the press:
The human costs of all this must be pinned to the people responsible. Not the press, who are just doing their job.
Journalism at its finest.

And if you don't believe me, check out Sullivan's latest "scandal" involving Palin and his pathetic attempt to equate it to 20 years of Jeremiah Wright.

Praying for a group of non-Christians to accept Jesus as their savior is offensive? Seriously? The entire existence of the Christian faith has to be considered offensive on a daily basis, then.

Just like the experience thing, this can only serve to remind the voters of Obama’s shortcomings, and Rev. Wright. There is a world of difference between prayer and "God D*mn America."
Still nothing from any of the sites that went apesh*t over Jeremiah Wright.
... says Sullivan [edited to conform to QandO’s profanity notice].

That’s because they are not the same thing, Andrew. Not by a longshot. Yet here is a tacit admission that the Rev. Wright situation is a problem for Obama.

We should really invent a term for this sort of tacit admission and get it into the public consciousness. Is there a military term for people who accidentally wound themselves with their own weapon during combat?

Sullivan has lost all credibility with his attacks on Palin.

Prediction: Scott Erb will come and tell us that Jews For Jesus is a secretly racist organization. Mkultra will say the Jews For Jesus is more anti-Semitic than the Nazis, without ever explaining why converting Jews is worse than systematically killing them.

Isn’t the the Nuremberg defense ?

Jews for Jesus is offensive because it is based on a false premise—that one can remain a faithful Jew (as opposed to a person born in a Jewish family) even though one is a practicing Christian. It’s rather like claiming Marx is a fundamentally libertarian write, or that Erb contributes anything worthwhile to an intellectual discussion.

And the statement that a terrorist attack in Jerusalem was a judgment from God for not believing in Jesus is at least as offensive as anything Wright is claimed to have said—in fact, more offensive than anything in the God D-mn America sermon.

However, since I am a Jew who is not for Jesus, I might be a little biased here.

Jews for Jesus
I knew a whole bunch of Jews for Jesus when I was growing up.

We called them "christians"

to be fair, there is a group of Jews who are called Messianic Jews: Christians who worship Christ but still follow all the Judaic traditions.

They call themselves Jews for Jesus. My Doctor is one of these worshipers.

Hmmm... I must’ve imagined that that whole Paul-James debate that I thought filled up a good portion of the New Testament.

"Jews for Jesus" is an evangelical type of Messianic Jew.

I know a family of Messianic Jews; and their belief is that as Jews they are still bound by Mosaic law, whereas Gentile Christians are bound otherwise by Noahide Law; Hence they still keep Kosher, Celebrate Jewish Holidays, etc. Etc.
