What? Before her Bat Mitzvah?
The horrying attitude of most judges and politicians.
Time to make a clean sweep.
What’s the big deal? Those monotheists are all alike anyway.
If she tried that from Islam she would be killed.
let’s see here...give up Judaism and convert to an erroneous version of Christianity....how good is that? I guess, because she will be baptized, she will at least be absolved of original sin. Christ, however, laid out a plan for salvation and the protestant church wasn’t mentioned anywhere....in fact it didn’t exist for 1,600 years after He laid out the plan.
I thought the judge handled it pretty well. He didn’t ask for the case, the parents brought it to him.
He ruled that the girl could continue to study the religion that drew her, that she would still have her jewish roots, and that her parents would continue to love her whatever happened.
I thought he handled it correctly and sensitively. A judge should not be deciding what your religion should be and he didn’t try to. He just refused to deny the girl her right to believe what she already believed which was her father’s religion. Had she been from a Christian mother attracted to her father’s jewish faith the correct answer would still be the same.
The thing is that this girl can make that decision and not have her throat slit or being stoned to death as happens in Islam.
She can ALWAYS repent and convert back at a later date. That is the beauty of Christianity and Judaism.
Try that in Libia, Syria, Iran, Irak, Pakistan, Egypt, Lebanon, etc., etc., etc..
Look I respect Jews, and like Jewish people, but once Jesus has changed your heart (as the Messiah will if allowed) a person doesn’t want to go back. We ~need~ God’s Grace. I hope this doesn’t offend any Jewish freepers and yes God cares about you, we just know that Jesus was/is the messiah and no one can (nor would) cut off an arm same as being cut off from Jesus.
God Bless this child.
