    Some daft Israeli in Ireland posted this rubbish on facebook.

    My question: Is this sort of thing acceptable in any way, shape or form?
    Personally, I believe it's seriously offensive.

    I would have replaced "probably" with "may."

    I'm not offended.


    Seems stupid, but people say much more idiotic things on this site every day. *shrug*

    and why are you looking at facebooks of people you dont know? It was not posted to you was it? The only reason you are offended.... is becasue you looked.

    I would suggest you stop stalking facebook for things that offend you if you are that thin skinned....

    Very recently a young man in England was forced to leave a sports bar because he looked like Jesus and caused a disruption among Christian haters. All he wanted was a beer and to watch a game.

    I respect freedom enough to accept the offensive displays that accompany it.

    The question should be "Is it accurate" instead of acceptable. The way it is worded requires only one's view on whether a mother and child who happen to be Jewish would come to harm in a Palestinian mob. Whether or not it is true doesn't necessarily enter into the answer.

    Is it acceptable? That is a meaningless question. In what context are you asking if it is acceptable?

    What you are essentially asking as far as I can tell is should this person been allowed to post such a thing. Of course. I don't care if he wanted to call Jesus a stinking piece of shit or claim he was going to wipe his ass with Allah, hearing such nonsense is part of having freedom. Being on the internet is going to expose you to this type of imbecile but that does not mean that it should be deemed 'unacceptable' and censored.

    I fail to understand what you are asking about when you use the term 'unacceptable.' The above statements are FAR more insulting than the one you cited but in no way should anything be censored because it is offensive or disagreeable. No matter how wrong something may or may not be.

    I sincerely doubt that that actually happened. Unless you can prove it, that is.

    All sorts of stuff get reposted (shared) on fb, Syrenn. That little bit of trash went viral.
