    This strip stayed with me for days…My newspaper copy was thrown away by accident, and I have been searching for this for the past two years. It’s short, touching, and deep.

    Just one other comment here? Strange - I would think this one would have been swamped.

    Perhaps zev.farkas, there are no words adequate.

    One of my favorites! I put it in my Bible to remind myself that abuse of Religion can have consequences.

    Reynard61, the holocaust has nothing to do with the Bible, for two reasons.

    1: Even though the Jews first were hated because of religious reasons, the Bible doesn’t tell Christians to hate Jews. But they were hated later on in history because they were different.

    2: The Nazis didn’t base their “right” to discriminate and persecute Jews on religious reasons, but on “racial purity”. Of course, the Jews probably became their hate object number one because of the old prejudices against them, which went back to religious differences. But still, it’s not correct to call the Holocaust “abuse of religion”, because that’s not the truth, or at least not the whole truth.

    “when they came for the jews i didn’t protest because i wasn’t jewish…” and the line from Fiddler on the Roof about “Jesus killers” i think… the nazis did it for their reasons, but they got away with it because others had their reasons…

    The Jews were not persecuted because of their religion but because they insist to be a people within other countries.

    That’s hard to accept for the people who believe to be soverign on this land especially during an economic crisis like in the 1930’s.

    “The Jews were not persecuted because of their religion but because they insist to be a people within other countries. ”

    Sure. That’s why the calls of “Juden ‘raus” were so popular, because it didn’t ID by religion.

    Nice to see there’s still a segment of the population still trying to deny things.

    I’m sure your friends at Stormfront loved your “comment”.

    wow, so much comment on why the holocaust happened, seems pointless to add to the speculation.

    I’m just surprised that Wiley, for once, seems to understand religious persecution and even is showing at least one religion some respect after spending so many year adding to all the religious persecution, making fun of the concept of religion.

    It should be reprinted each year.
