Christian Anti-Semitism For sixteen hundred years, the Jewish people have been persecuted and murdered by people who worship a Jewish man as their savior: the Christians. Why did Christian anti-Semitism, a seemingly illogical belief given that Jesus himself was a Jew, develop? How did it evolve, and why has it persisted for centuries? In the Biblical gospels, despite three of the four being ostensibly written by Jews, enemies of Jesus are referred to as "the Jews." Early Christians found themsel

In fact, one can trace the history of rap back to the West African professional singers/storytellers kn

Steroids were considered harmful and made illegal in 1991. Some side affects of steroids are baldness, high blood pressure, lowered sex drive, ac
