Fox Apologizes to Jews for Jesus Facebook Poll..(in Argentina)

Huffington Post:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/29/fox-apologizes-to-jews-jesus-facebook-poll_n_1175267.html

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Fox Latin America has apologized for a poll on whether Jews killed Jesus Christ that one of its staffers put on a Facebook page promoting the National Geographic Channel's Christmas special.

The poll asked readers who they think is responsible for the death of Christ: Pontius Pilate, The Jewish People or the High Priests.

The Simon Weisenthal Center in Buenos Aires calls it a defamatory reference to Vatican propaganda that "resulted in the persecution and murder of Jews for two millennia."

The Jewish group says it's outraged that Fox would perpetuate an idea that the Vatican annulled back in 1965.

2. I always thought it was the Argentinians that killed Christ.

Right after he came to The Americas to try and teach the Native Americans about Mormonism.

3. I'd like to see the "apology." I wonder if it's a real apology, or a Republican "Apology."

"I apologize to anyone who was offended," as opposed to, "I apologize for being offensive."

9. Or, I'm sorry you're too dumb to understand my sophistication

And has to be said with that certain condescending sneer.

4. It wasn't the Jewish people, it was the 1%

besides, everyone knows God caused the death of Jesus; it was necessary so that Christians could go to heaven. At least that's what I was taught in Catholic school.

7. Jesus was a socialist hippie murdered by the conservative 1% of that era.

6. It was to boost the ratings for their annual 'War on Christmas' hatefest.

And of course they don't know what time of year it is in that thick, polluted fog they live in.

8. Now, if only the Vatican

would admit that Jesus never existed but is another version of the solar myth cycle that has been around for millennia. The carnalization of the messianic solar myth was done to fool the majority and it obviously has worked. Look up Acharya S. as a starting point for research. I hope this will help.
