Only from what I pointed out, which is using the term "the Jews" can be taken offensively. In most tones, especially on the net when saying something negatively, it can me misconstrued as an insult.
Now if you want me to dig up three year old records of a certain individual posting on an anti-semitic board professing the extermination of the Jewish race, then I will do my best to bring this up. If you took my original post offensive, then point out what my offenses were, otherwise you are arguing because I hit a certain tone with you, sir. Reread my original posting:
I want to inform some people here about some issues regarding why it took a while for me to post here.
Three years ago I came across this site, interested in Orthodoxy. I read some things, had some fun and was ready to make a handle and jump in.
What I came across when I saw references to Jews, not only the religious Jew but the cultural Jew, I was disgusted. I followed links with names, sadly mostly Serbian and I saw someone who shall remain nameless on an anti-Semitic board using the same handle and promoting the extermination of Jews in their nation. I was appalled, disgusted, cried honestly and questioned if Blessed Orthodoxy is truly the loving compassionate church Jesus Christ founded. It took not only the Roman Catholics, but two loving Orthodox Priests to help me come to my conclusion of entering the Church. Their information on Jewish converts to Orthodoxy helped alot, and I have to say that those who hate the Jew are in sin. Those who hate their faith walk a shady ground and those who have compassion to heal and show the truth to the Jew in love is healthy. SO to those who have an issue, please realize you will have to answer God for some of your actions and reasoning.
And remember, we all have a Jewish Mother who intercedes for us, so how can you hate her?
My biggest issue I had was I saw no love for another race of people, period. It also upset me that I found a certain individual posting here professing Jesus Christ in one breath, then jumping over to another board, an anti-semitic racist board, using the tone "F&$% the Jews" in another. If that is not hatred, what is? And sadly it happen to be one of "the Serbs" here, who shall remain nameless. Would this turn you off, if you were of Jewish descent, looking into the loving arms of Mother Orthodoxy?
Yes, I will admit I argued with you on not the same level grounds in my second post. I bantered a bit and was not at my best debate. I am sorry for this and wish to put it past us if possible.
But I have to note, after reading your responses to not only me, that your view towards "the Jews" is not quite as strong in love as it should be. People are human, with souls, and should our desire to be conversion, in love, towards all of God's Children, even those who come from a line of those who rejected His First Coming?
And Mary, the Mother of God, is Jewish by blood. Why is this insulting to some? I really do not get it. Why? Is it so bad to have Jewish blood, people?
