Harvard Students Apologize for Blog on Jews and Jesus Killing

By: JTA

The student-run Harvard Ichthus Christian blog website apologized for an anonymous post by a Jewish convert to Christianity who wrote that Jews deserve to be persecuted for killing Jesus.

The apology was issued on Friday, and the original post that was published last Wednesday has been removed from the site.

“(W)e sincerely apologize for breaching the confidence of civil dialogue. This has been a growing experience for all involved here at the Ichthus, and, as students, we sincerely appreciate the patience and grace you have demonstrated towards us,” editor-in-chief Aaron Gyde wrote in his apology.

“We, the Jews, collectively rejected God and hung Him up on a cross to die, and thus we deserved the punishments that were heaped on our heads over the last 2000 years,” the post said, according to the Boston Globe.

“This particular piece has led to increasing misunderstanding and disinformation about the author’s views, the Ichthus, and Christianity,” the Ichthus wrote in the apology. “We do acknowledge that many of the claims of Christianity are offensive to those who do not believe it, but we think that much of the offense that has resulted from this article is not the offense of the gospel of Jesus Christ. And for that we apologize.”

  1. Harvard must be full of idiots, don't they know that the Romans killed Jesus??

  2. Sorry to disappoint all the haters, but the Jews did NOT kill Christ, nor did the Romans. Everyone who sins killed Christ, and continues to nail Him on the cross to the present day.
    He was sinless, but made sin in order for everyone who believes to have salvation from the wages of sin; which death, which is eternity with no knowledge of God.
    So, you only need go as far as the mirror to see who really killed Christ.

  3. Bob Whyte says:

    Maybe I have been taught wrong or have misinformation, but the Jews did not kill Jesus. He was killed by the Romans. The Jews only rejected him. The stupid little fool woo wrote the thing needs a good education – perhaps beyond the books.

  4. Well, so now we know who gets into Harvard.

  5. AC Stubbs says:

    Odds are that the writer was never a Jew and is not a Christian. I am also not implying that the writer is any other religion. Those that workfor evil will lie

  6. stewart says:

    Who cares? Many people have been executed for crimes commited against the state.

  7. The Romans crucified Jesus, not the Jews.

  8. Gil Gilman says:

    I have news for Christians…read your New Testament John 10:18., or don't you believe your own book?

  9. Bruce Bevitz says:

    I would be willng to bet that this anonymous Jewish convert to Christianity, was never Jewish., and not much if a Christian. This sick individual knew that if he did not take the unusual rare position of a Jewish Convert to Christianity, he (or she) would be labelled a plain old anti-semite, but could get away with such sick rhetoric by posing as a formally Jewish convert. One should always temper the opinions of those too cowardly to use their names and stand by their opinions.

  10. Yechiel Baum says:

    Obviously Harvard is not the intellegencia of the the USA educational system and who ever taught the person Christianity should be investigated by the church for catholism with false education of pure hatred.

    No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”
