I enjoy viewing “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Larry David is a funny man, do I get offended, not really because he does this kind of stuff all the time. Larry David likes to push peoples buttons and I do give him credit for being honest and revealing his views through his comedy. I respect him and his rights to express his views the same way I respect Mel Gibson for expressing his.
What does offend me is the fact that if a Non Jew made similar remarks about Jews they would be labeled anti-Semite. Case in point Mel Gibson. That is a double standard. I am A Christian and what really upsets me is the hypocrisy when I hear Jews all the time taking swipes at Jesus and Christians in general. Even though for the most part the Christians are the greatest allies of the Jews in Israel and here in America. Israels tourism is maintained and supported by Christians.
In Israel they have tried to pass a Bill S757-1996 into law that would prohibit Pastors from witnessing to the Jewish people. If this bill becomes law they can be imprisoned if found sharing Christ. Yet we don’t hear anything about this in the media.
I get offended by Christians that are politically correct. They are cowards in my opinion, because if any other group of people or religion would act toward Christians the way that a great number of people who identify themselves as being Jewish, the Christians would speak out against them, but they will not call out someone who is Jewish when they make these type of comments. So I get upset with the cowards that call themselves Christians but will not defend their faith. As for Larry David I accept him and have no problem what so ever with him or his show.
