Upon which Christian fundamentalists started destroying Beatle LPs and singles.    They apparently never recognized the form of idolatry that they were practising.   Then that does not hold a candle to supporting the ethnic-cleansing terrorism of the Holy Lands.  

On second thought, nuclear weapons proliferation does auger well for the 'rapture'.  Even a limited, regional nuclear war would likely sicken and kill close to half of the adult American population.  
 
{#Eek}  which half? From the waist up or from the waist down?

I have a 45 of that but it's a 60s reissue, probably for the jukebox industry. Still cool.

Interesting stuff.      Question.

Why were so many Germans, presumably of good Germanic stock, anti-Jewish going into the early 20th century?
 

same reason anyone hates jews now

ignorance and stupidity

being taught or told to hate any innocent peaceful people is still huge problem today

this type of violence has always had rhetoric and symbolism right up front

tribal (cheer) leaders are here to tell you what to think

authoritarian 101 playbook stuff

because plurality is an evil conspiracy

Because it was rather common in countries with Christian majorities.
 
People hate Jews.  Or rather some Christians hate Jews.  Good.

Why?    How about an answer that goes beyond us & them and gets into real life resource conflicts?
 
Are real life resource conflicts preventing you from finding a suitable answer?
