Today, the first words I heard from my "good, Christian" future mother-in-law included a salvo of curse words and a hushed rant about "them dirty Jews". I'm culturally Jewish. This bodes well. FML

I'm sure she would've really hit it off with her savior, a short, dark-skinned, culturally Jewish fellow named Jesus.

The thing I don't get about Christians hating Jews is that they don't realize their religion only exists because of a Jew.

You should mention causally that you are jewish and see what she does.

I have a feeling the MIL already knows she's Jewish.

I don't think you get this...

Don't worry about your in laws. As long as you and your husband love each other she can't stand in the way

I apologize. I read the fml wrong. I meant fiancé

Tell her how you feel, OP.

There will always be assholes. Every religion had their bad crop

Too bad so many of them live in Texas.

too bad so many live in syria...

Tell her to convert and see how she likes it lmao

I'm not real sure about that. I make Jew jokes, and I don't hate them. I'm also Christian. so I think it's the stupid Christians, or the are liars who say they are Christian, or act it, to have a good standing. like presidential candidates

I think those ones do realize it, its just that like most racial prejudices it isn't founded on rational thought

It's because Jesus was killed by Jews who believed their beliefs superior.

Technically the Romans killed Him.

Christians do not hate Jews. I'm a Christian and, speaking for the majority, we don't hate anyone. People who hate Jews whether Christian or not are stupid. People who hate any other people for my reason are stupid and irrational.

Under the Jews command the Romans killed him

No he was killed by the Romans, on what was effectively a charge of terrorism, after offending the Sanhedrin, who considered him a blasphemer and a threat to their power. The Sanhedrin could have executed him themselves, for blasphemy, but didn't want to because he was so popular.

#43, I agree with you, I think that making jokes about Jews though is largely in poor taste (though a lot of my friends do). I don't know. Just be wary, because often bad things (in extreme forms, leading to segregation, Holocausts or genocide) start with something called antilocution. This is where jokes are made to show a group of people in poor light (Jehovah Witnesses, Jews, Homosexuals, Muslims immigrants etc.) and it becomes a common joke. This can lead to people thinking that being in that group is a bad thing and can lead to derogatory words being used for these groups (swarms, hoardes, cockroaches, scum, niggers) and that is when you are in trouble. Then, if these attitudes and thinking becomes common-place, people in these groups will be treated differently for being in this group, and discrimination starts. They may also feel unwelcome (e.g. if people make gay jokes or use gay as a bad word 'that's so gay' then someone who is gay might feel like that is a bad thing and unable to tell someone their sexuality). Eventually antilocution can lead to scapegoating and lawful discrimination and even genocide (Rwandan Genocide - a big sign this was going to happen was when political leaders called the Tutsis 'cockroaches').

A Jew, like all people, from 2000 years ago is not the same as one from today. I hope it wasn't painful to have your bubble bursted.

ah, gotta love hypocrites

Ah, isn't it great to see religious bigotry alive and well in 2016
