Oh no, more blasphemy!


As if the Danish cartoons were not enough, reports are filtering through of another blasphemy, this time a direct insult to the Jews.

Apparently it happened within the Temple area of Jerusalem, where I young Jewish man was arguing with some of the leading scholars. At the end of the debate this young man, a native of Nazareth claimed that "before Abraham was even born, he was God".
Immediately the crowds were in uproar, they wanted to stone him for this utter blasphemy, a total offence to the God of the Jews. The mob wanted retribution, thankfully, for the moment he escaped, yet if this tension continues it is highly likely that someone will end up being killed.

Do you have a link to back this up? I'd be very interested in reading it.

The full story can be found in an ancient document that later people labelled up, the relevant bit is at John 8:58, sorry just read on and it seems like someone did get killed, cool thing is, it appears that the guys still around!

Yes, I know this story.It's a good one.
Actually on the subject of blasphemy, are you aware that the muslims have been quite happy to publish anti semitic cartoons in their papers for a long time. In fact one of the latests one shows hitler in bed with anne frank.
