I agree with thecranberry.
May have been the first time I`ve said that.
And uh, I agree with beernotbombs too. I totally think what you put as "real estate" should definitely be a human affair. As concrete as holy scriptures seem to be, a lot of the content is obsolete and I think today we need to rely on common sense and morals.

And Downinit, I`m not saying a majority justifies any sort of insult. I`m saying it`s not as big of a deal and it`s not considered a threat to Christians everywhere when Christianity is negated against, just because there are so many more Christians. I can`t think of a time when a dictator tried to kill all the Christians.
Please be specific and tell me what I know to be true in what you said and am working around. I honestly have no idea what that could be.
And Jews don`t "viciously attack" people when they`re offended. I don`t know if you realize it, but anti-Judaism (I say this and not anti-Semitism, which refers to all Middle-Easterns) is still alive and well, and hate crimes against Jews still occur. I know I don`t get pissed off at Jew jokes. I`ve told many myself. I don`t know what happened in Hungary, but I know that in the US, people say whatever they want about Jews, and pretty much no one "viciously attacks" them unless their lives are in danger.

Thank you, farquaad. Not all Jewish people feel they are better than everyone else. In fact, a large part of the Jewish ideology states that every person, not just the Jews, are created "in God`s image". It`s an equality statement. The "chosen people" philosophy doesn`t at all insinuate a superiority complex. It means to say the Jewish people were "chosen" by God to receive the Torah and "chosen" to inhabit Israel (what I`ve heard referred to as Zionism).

I think the term "anti semitesim" is over used
does anyone here even know what a semite is?
a semite is not just a jew (and by the way a huge porportion of jews arent even semites...there of eastern european stock)
here`s a list of lesser known semites
-lebanese
-kurds
-palestinions (my grandfather
-iraq`s
-saudi`s
-syrians
-egyptions
arabs in general......so if you call a palistenion an anti semite for morning the loss of his ancestrial land, forceing him into getto`s, the massicers, the murders......then you are a dumb ass

Stereotyping is wrong overall. Gibson was drunk. Like him or not, he apologized for his comments. Leary was making fun of him for what he said while he was drunk. Whether either one was right or wrong is pointless. What matters is was Leary amusing? He wasn`t. Therefore: 1 star for this piece of garbage.

On another note to DownInIt... why do you assume *ALL* Jewish people feel they are better than everyone else? And don`t say "BECAUSE THEY DO" because that`s begging the question, a logical fallacy that will not convince anyone of whatever point you are trying to make.

beatlefaerie has just proven my point.

So answer this, just because someone is in the majority it automatically becomes OKAY to insult that person? Yet you imply that I`m ignorant. You see, as a Jew, you have taken offence at what I said, yet you KNOW it`s true, now you`re just trying to work around what I said, trying to make yourself look correct.
To be honest, not EVERY religion teaches that their believers are "chosen people". Because Jews strongly believe this, they try and make others believe this aswell. Yet, do you realise that you`re no better than anyone else? The only reason you people get this much respect, is because everyone feels sorry for you, also because there are laws against saying anything negative about you, since you people viciously attack anyone who does. You are no better than any Christian/Muslim, etc., and never will be better than anyone. You are equal to everyone else (as long as you ACT like everyone else). Enough said...

DownInIt, we are taking this outside... metaphorically speaking.
I`m taking it down to 5 points because I don`t want to waste that much time on you.
1. I`m Jewish and I know far more about my "religion" than you.
2. It`s not a "religion", it`s a religion. And it`s the oldest religion. You may have forgotten that it existed before Christianity. Jesus was, after all, Jewish.
3. EVERY religion preaches that it is the chosen people, not just the Jews`. As a Jew, I believe in the Jewish ideology. A Muslim would believe in his or hers. Whatever.
4. Any self-respecting Jew should be offended by anti-Semitism. It`s how they react that determines their strength of character. You see, some anti-Semitism is truly malicious. Other examples of it are just the result of being ignorant. Sound familiar?
5. Know what the difference between anti-Christian and anti-Jewish jokes is? Jews are in the minority, whereas Christians are abundant. Is it worse to insult a bl

Actually, Family Guy got pulled off the air because the episode titled "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein" was "anti-Semetic". Meanwhile, they let openly anti-Christian jokes pass by. That episode was tame, the most they did was make a few stereotypical jokes, nothing that an ordinary Family Guy episode hasn`t had before.

I`m disgusted with the Jews that believe that they`re better than everyone else (because their "religion" says so... chosen people... yeah right). The ones that just live a normal life, that take criticism well, and aren`t greatly offended by anti-Semetism (which most Jews blow up at, i.e. a nuclear missile hitting a little African boy) are fine by me.

In Hungary, for example, the Jewish community tried to pass a bylaw that prevents people from saying ANYTHING negative about Jews. The punishment? Minimum TWO YEARS IN PRISON. Luckily, the President veto`d the damned thing. The Jewish community were outraged.

"Thats so horrible... Wanker".
Denis wasn`t criticizing Mel, he was just laughing at how everyone`s blown the whole Mel situation out of proportion by jokingly assuming Mel would be pissed off at seeing a Jewish pitcher (which I`m guessing he wouldn`t be).
By the way, Denis plays an alcoholic on his show "Rescue Me", so I`m sure he can sympathize with Mel.

How is alcoholism a disease when people can quit drinking. A cancer patient can`t just suddenly stop having cancer, a bipolar person can`t just stop being bipolar. An alcoholic can stop. They`ll dislike it lots, but they can stop. Shall we legalize herion? Because if one addiction is a disease ALL are. And you don`t want to jail the "diseased".

I find it extremely offensive when someone calls alcoholism a disease. Not everything is one.

I think this is pat of the reason people call being gay a disease.
[end of rant]

Anyhow, he`s joking. Not burning people alive or saying people should die. I suppose Chris Rock is evil for hating on black people?

Thats so horrible. I couldn`t even watch that whole thing. I adore Mel, he`s mad. I`m sorry Leary that you`re so perfect and that you have to criticise someone who has a disease (alcoholism) to make yourself feel better. Wanker.

^--- Definitely.
"Mel is somewhat right... Pure hipocrisy."
Are you honestly supporting what a guy said while he was wasted? Mel Gibson isn`t even supporting what he said, because he knows he was wasted. If you want to start your own anti-Semitic rant, go ahead and make your own enemies. But Mel Gibson didn`t mean a fragment of what he said, apparently, so all the blame is on you.
Jews don`t only complain and whine. Obviously you buy into the common stereotypes. Get informed. Making fun of ANY religion, as long as it`s light-hearted enough, is always dismissed. Jews don`t make a federal case out of being insulted unless it`s meant seriously, and it`s no different with Christians.

Lmao...Dennis Leary is great. Mel Gibson and anyone who thinks all the wars in the world were started by jews is obviously a DUMBAZsS(I don`t Really blame Mel though, because he was wasted). Christians are the ones who went/still go around killing and arresting people who are diffrent(Gays, people who look diffrent, people of diffrent religions). They`re the leading world relgion. And have been since...A long ass time, atleast a thousand years they`ve been in control, yet they still whine about how they`re discrimanated.

ok "all the wars" is definitly going overbord......ww2 and hitler was defienitly not something anyone would have wanted...especcially the jews. the jewish intellictuals might have helped kick start the russian rvolution but they were in league with the peasents and communests abd couldent have forseen the horribal oppression and anti-semitisim of stalin....I think when mel say`s "all the wars" it probably means starting from 1948....specificly in a certain section of the middle east

"I`lll cut mel gibson some slack...the jews really do start all the wars in the world"

Mel is somewhat right, it definatly was the Jews that started the revolution in Russia. They overthrew the royal family and started a Communist dictatorship. Also, the founder of communism was Jewish.
Lenin was part Jewish. There`s other wars that Jews started, but I`m not gonna get into that.

Jews these days need to learn how to take criticism. They do nothing but complain and whine. But when Christians get made fun of on TV BY JEWISH WRITERS, no one says anything. Pure hipocrisy.

Pretty funny-- mostly just a lot of yelling and screaming, but I agree, all just in good fun. Making anti-semetic remarks because you are drunk = not in good fun. I agree with sicker, neither seems like a person I want to hang out with, though

And yours was? Is having a go at someone off topic intelligent? However, if I were jewish and I had some commentator really making a big deal about it I`d want to punch him in the mouth.
