Gillibrand is very disappointed that Francis is not a "throne and altar" anti-Semite.

Unity among Christians and Jews is good.

Glad to see it. Remember our roots of what Jesus would have celebrated helps us learn more.

Also, many of the very early popes honored Jewish holidays so he is going back to very old tradition.

Indeed it is - but not according to this clown, apparently.

You have something against the book of Maccabees? Or just Jews?

Chanuka is a celebration of the victory of God’s people over pagans who were oppressing the Jews and desecrating the house of the Lord. Even though this occurred long before Jesus, why shouldn’t a Christian celebrate this event?

One of my beloved father’s last Christmas gifts to me (I’m catholic) was a Hanukah candelbra, candles and prayers. I love him for that, it reminds me of my roots.

He has only been Pope for a couple hours and all you can do is spread venom.

I won’t be visiting anymore of your threads, it would be a pure waste of my time.

You're just jealous because he found the afikoman, not you.

As any good American should. Not because it was a victory for Mexico. But because it was a defeat for the French.

It's absolutely wonderful

Some people act like that is a bad thing.

But it's not :)
