Way back in January Martin Gibson said "Little Hawk, I love ya pal, but am disappointed that your post on the Old Testament absolutely reeks of the worst possible type of anti-semitism. Your Sunday school teacher might have been thinking about your crotch when he taught it to you.

Mudcat continues to be a haven for strong and ignorant anti-semitism."

Just a couple of points, Martin.

I agree with what you say about Little Hawk's understanding of the Old Testament. I don't know about anti-semitism but it is certainly not a fair description of the Old Testament that I have read and not the one my Sunday School teacher taught me.

However, I'm not convinced that Mudcat is so "Anti-semite". It has very free speech so can be anti-semitic, anti-christian, anti-pro-life. I see more anti-christian stuff than anti-semetic. However, there seem to be more Christians prepared to fight back than there are Jews.

Can I also suggest that you sometimes set yourself up for apparently anti-semitic replies by the way you attack other people's views - just as some Christian posters seem to attract anti-christian replies.
