    I would love to see this turn into a court case one day.:lol:

    Then the religious nazis can get us Seventh Day Adventists for following the Sabbath and obeying the dietary laws.:lol:

    Silly, silly, silly. Your thoughts?

    Weird.

    The good friday supper that is celebrated in the eucharist was a passover seder, IIRC.

    I think it might actually be a good idea. Passover is a very basic part of Jewish practice, and I do think lots of christians would be well off to learn some of its lessons.

    Process of the celebration is questions and answers. Why do we do this, why do we eat this crappy food once a year? We need to remember that we were slaves, and we were liberated from slavery, and we need to remember where we came from, and what our goals are.

    The characterization of an evangelical of what she thinks jews think?

    yeah, right.

    how about not cutting off the article before this:

    and next time, how about including your link.

    Christian seders draw concern - The York Daily Record

    btw, there is no such thing as a 'christian seder'. seder's had nothing to do with jesus except to the extent that his 'last supper' was one. and he attended it as would any other jew.

    beyond that, i doubt anyone really cares. i just think it's pretty silly. and if it's being used to proselytize, i think that's inappropriate. but if it's just commemorative, who cares?

    did you bother reading your own article or look at its source?

    or you just felt like creating yet another boring anti-semitic thread?

    I agree with the Jews. Making a mockery of another religion's holy day by distorting its intended meaning benefits nobody.

    There's a series of articles that I've read on the same topic one coming from the Houston Chronicle:

    Christians marking Passover concern some Jews | Houston & Texas News | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

    I thought you were calling me an anti-semitic evangelical female. Being that I'm a non-evangelical male who's not anti-semitic it kind of threw me off.

    Jonah didn't preach Repentence to Ninevah did he?

    Except by any reasonable definition it's a Christian Holy day as well.

    I'm Roman Catholic. I went to Catholic school from K-8. We had several Jewish families whose children attended our school.

    We *always* had Seder suppers for Passover. Always.

    So sue us too. :eusa_doh:
