Anti-Semetic Coptic Pope: “Jews not God’s Chosen”

September 29, 2011

Well, what else would we expect the head of an historically anti-semetic faith to say? 

Modern-day Jews are not God’s chosen people, said Pope Shenouda III, the head of Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Church, in a statement Wednesday evening.

“Do not believe their claims that they are God’s chosen people, because it is not true,” Shenouda said during his weekly sermon on Wednesday evening at the papal residence in Abbasseya.

To my knowledge, the Holy Spirit has not issued a revision update to the Old Testament.  Thus, I am going to stand by the original.  While Romans 11 does talk about Christians being “grafted in”, it still puts the Jews in a special place as God’s Chosen People who will be treated uniquely by God.

    Many Jews have choosen to not practice their Jewish faith, hence a reason why someone might make such a claim. For instance, Hollywood is a rather Godless place with a high percentage of Jewish people far exceeding their general population numbers and the vile anti-Christian Leftist tilt of secularism is standard Main Stream Media propganda. While I do not agree with the religious leader who issued this falsehood, it is my belief that “God’s People” are those who follow him, not just a single race.
