So here’s my question: If I inadvertently convert a Jew do I have to go to confession? Like if a Jew comes up and says “Hey I was wondering about this Jesus” should I say “I can’t talk to you about Him.”
But isn’t that anti-Semitic? I’m confused.
Catholics should not try to convert Jews and should work with them to fight antisemitism, the Vatican has said, in a major new document that draws the church further away from the strained relations of the past.
Christianity and Judaism are intertwined and God never annulled his covenant with the Jewish people, said the document from the Vatican’s commission for religious relations with Jews.
“The church is therefore obliged to view evangelisation to Jews, who believe in the one God, in a different manner from that to people of other religions and world views,” it said.
“In concrete terms this means that the Catholic church neither conducts nor supports any specific institutional mission work directed towards Jews.”
So why not all become Jews? They have good food and good jokes without all that judgey Jesus stuff. There is bacon. That would kinda’ stink, not having bacon. So there’s that. Wait, can I talk to Jews about bacon?
