The chanting started with a rude taunt: Newton North High School students cheering for their basketball team Friday night shouted, “Where are your girls?” to the fans of Catholic Memorial School, an all-boys school.

But the response from the Catholic Memorial fans to their opponents, many of whom are Jewish, left the Newton North crowd horrified and upset: “You killed Jesus!” shouted about 50 to 75 Catholic Memorial students. “You killed Jesus!”

    The Romans killed Jesus.

    The most effective rejoinder to the chant “You Killed Jesus” is the chant “Jesus was a Jew.”

    they’re young morons but they’re probably not thugs, though young morons often grow up to be thugs. like all young people (and, people of all ages), they need instruction. with some good instruction, they’ll probably turn out fine.

  • Christian theology is based on Jesus’ having died so that we could be forgiven. Why, then, should Jews be blamed, as in this Christ-killer manifestation of anti-Jewish hatred? This glaring inconsistency betrays the ignorance that is part and parcel of the thinking of uneducated bigots. It exemplifies the traditional Christian anti-Semitism that should have been done away with a long time ago.

    The Catholic school appears to have reacted in a very appropriate manner, determined to make a lesson out of the whole episode. I’m convinced some good will come of it.
