Christianity to blame for ‘deeply entrenched anti-Semitism,’ says archbishop

Archbishop Justin Welby has admitted Britain has a “deeply entrenched” anti-Semitism problem made worse over time by Christianity.

The Church of England’s highest cleric called Christianity’s treatment of Jews “shameful” and said society is still struggling with the consequences of its “history of denial and complicity.”

Welby called anti-Semitism a nationwide problem which is not limited to one political group.

In an essay for the Holocaust Educational Trust, the archbishop said: “Anti-Semitism is at the heart of racism. Yet, because it is so deeply entrenched in our thought and culture, it is often ignored and dismissed.”

He said Jews faced centuries of persecution in medieval England and that anti-Semitism had taken root within English culture by the time Jews were allowed to return in the 1650s.

“It is a shameful truth that, through its theological teachings, the Church, which should have offered an antidote, compounded the spread of this virus.

“The fact that anti-Semitism has infected the body of the Church is something of which we as Christians must be deeply repentant. We live with the consequences of our history of denial and complicity.”

Welby dismissed the idea anti-Semitism is unique to the Labour Party, which has been engulfed in a racism row among its rank and file.

“Anti-Semitism is not a problem for one political party, one community or one sector of our society… Even today, in the 21st century, it is shocking that anti-Semitism still has traction; the virus continues to seek a host,” he said.

“It latches onto a variety of different issues: financial inequality, wars and depressions, education, politics and government, grave international issues such as the rights of Israelis and Palestinians, and interfaith tensions.

“It twists them to its own ends, with the perverted and absurd argument that a small group runs or plots against our society and manipulates international affairs.”

    Justin Welby like the Druid he replaced is nothing more than a Ziochristian ruled by the Kabbalah based Freemasonry. Welby has Jewish Weiler blood through his veins as well as the Ormonde blood of the Normans being the powerful Butler bloodline one of the controlling forces over Ireland. Why doesn’t Welby expose the vile hatred and racism within the Talmud the so-called holy book of the Jews with their illusion of chosenness? Why doesn’t Welby care about sixty-six million Russian Christians slaughtered by Bolshevik Talmudists funded by Wall Street the satellite arm of the City of London? Christendom always knew what the Jew really was but since these Jews infiltrated, divided and then destroyed Christianity now look at what we’re seeing as they suck up as Ziochristians to the sick Judaism death cult. I beg you all to watch ‘Marching to Zion’ and ‘The Other Israel’ in order to see through this Jewish charade especially when it comes to Christianity.
