The Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, Michael Curry, was the first person I ever heard use the term ‘Mother Judaism.’ His meaning being that the Christian tradition was born from Judaism and that Jesus, and his followers were Jews. Judaism is the mother of Christianity.

With this understanding, Bishop Curry is also a staunch opponent of antisemitism and calls on us to be the same and believes it important that every church and congregation recognize its Jewish roots and fight the forces of hate. I am proud to be the Pastoral Leader in a church led by Bishop Michael Curry. I am proud to join him, and many others, in the fight against anti-Jewish hate.

It's a nice sentiment and always a good idea to try and prevent such things but let's not make a mountain out of a mole hill. So two crazy kids wrote something in a bathroom and your other example is from five years ago? I wish people would stop telling everyone want a racist and bigoted and evil country America is -- because it's not.


Glad you shed some light on this issue I thought it was about ending illegal immigration and the removal of a statue depicting one of our founding fathers!
