The president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Josef Schuster, has demanded that the evangelical church clearly distance itself from the Judenmission [attempts to convert Jews to Christianity]. This topic, which is very important for Jews, was dealt with "unfortunately very vaguely" in a planned declaration of the Synod, said Schuster in an introductory greeting message on Sunday at the start of the Synod of the Evangelical Church in Germany in Bremen.
At the same time he praised the planned statement on "Martin Luther and the Jews", which the 120 synods wanted to consult about on Monday. It is important for Christian-Jewish dialogue that the Evangelical church "clearly distance itself from Luther's antisemitic side," said Schuster to the members of the church parliament.Source
It's a noteworthy aspect of both Muslim and Jewish supremacism that they cannot accept that practitioners of other faiths have a right to attempt to convert them. Each group thinks it is entitled to a special status in which it sits above and apart from the normal free interchange of ideas. There was a hostile article in the Jerusalem Post recently about the American politician Michele Bachmann's call to attempt the conversion of the Jews.
Former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann called for an intensified effort to convert Jews to Christianity.
“We recognize the shortness of the hour,” Bachmann said, “and that’s why we as a remnant want to be faithful in these days and do what it is that the Holy Spirit is speaking to each one of us, to be faithful in the Kingdom and to help bring in as many as we can — even among the Jews — share Jesus Christ with everyone that we possibly can because, again, He’s coming soon.”
First to report Bachmann’s call was Right Wing Watch, a project of People for the American Way, a church-state separation advocacy group. "A statement like Ms. Bachmann’s should serve to remind Jews that missionizing is, unfortunately, alive and well, and that we must always be on the lookout for it," said Agudath Israel of America spokesman Rabbi Avi Shafran.Source
Another article in the same newspaper welcomed the "conversion" of the actress Zooey Deschanel to Judaism. So, as with Muslims, conversion can only go one way.
