In reply to: Athens' Jewish community celebrates festival of lights »

December 9, 2012

Happy Hanukkah to all my Jewish brothers and sisters.

We Christians need to remember that Jesus was born a Jew, was raised a Jew, died as a Jew, and was given full Jewish burial rites.

Roman Catholics and Jews have become close and have made very productive steps in reaching out to one other to better understand our differences with mutual respect and admiration.

The slew of Protestant denominations here in the "Bible Belt" South...well...not so much! Sad

Happy Festival of Lights! Shalom Smile

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
