    In response to the article today on the Catholic Church's treatment of the Jews, I want to point out that the Catholic Church does not have a clean record on its treatment of the Jews. I encourage you to see for yourself by reading the following article: Christian-Jewish Relations: The Inquisition, available at http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/History/Inquisition.html

    Perhaps Nolan could mention which article he is referring to supposedly dealing with the "Catholic Church's treatment of the Jews". I am not able to find any such article or post in today's Immigration Daily issue, or any other issue I can recall reading.

    I did post immigration Daily blogs on September 8 and 9 dealing with the treatment of Jewish immigrants in Rome in the 1st Century before the Christian Era and the 1st century of the Christian Era, at least 300 years before there was anything resembling the Catholic Church, and when Rome was ruled by people who believed in the ancient gods, usually called pagans, not by Christians or Catholics.

    Neither of my posts has anything whatsoever to do with relations between Jews and the Catholic Church.

    This has admittedly been a thorny subject over a very long period of time. But it is not the topic that I wrote about and it is only tangentially related to the topic I did write about, which is treatment of Jewish immigrants by ancient Roman polytheists.

    While this is also off the topic, I would respectfully remind Nolan that there has been a considerable change in Catholic-Jewish relations since the time of the Inquisition hundreds of years ago.
    The Vatican now recognizes Israel; Pope John XXIII made a trip to pray at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, and burning Jews at the stake by the Catholic Church is now part of a terrible, but long past history.

    If Nolan wants to read an objective, scholarly study on present day Catholic-Jewish relations instead of engaging in polemics over a long dead issue which is only marginally related, if at all, to immigration, I would respectfully refer him to a 2009 study called Vatican-Israel Relations by the Council on Foreign Relations.
