Det kan blive ulovligt at citere biblen i USA

Af Lennart

Ulovligt at citere biblen, siger du?

Den slags angreb på biblen og ytringsfriheden må da komme fra Wokeismen på venstrefløjen?

Forkert.

Det er Repræsentanternes Hus som i går vedtog ny lovgivning som skal forhindre antisemitisme.

Loven bygger på en definition af antisemitisme fra International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance.

Her defineres blandt andet påstanden om at jøder slog Kristus ihjel som antisemitisme.

Denne påstand går imidlertid igen i biblen mange gange:

Acts 4:10
Be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by him this man is standing before you well.

1 Thessalonians 2:14-16
For you, brethren, became imitators of the churches of God in Christ Jesus which are in Judea; for you suffered the same things from your own countrymen as they did from the Jews, who killed both the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove us out, and displease God and oppose all men by hindering us from speaking to the Gentiles that they may be saved—so as always to fill up the measure of their sins.

Acts 3:14-15
You denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses.

Det bliver foreløbig ikke ulovligt at læse biblen, men kun at citere den.

Den nye lovgivning hedder Antisemitism Awareness Act.
