A Baptist minister admitted telling Jewish leaders that Jews were “going to hell” and would confront a fate “worse than the Holocaust” because they had not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior. Pastor Kevin Harris of the Illawarra Community Church in Wollongong, Australia, insists his comments were taken out of context and that he was “misunderstood and misquoted” because he meant anyone who rejected Christ was headed for damnation in the eternal fires of Hell, not just the Jews. Gee, that is reassuring to any Jew, but it must be scary to anyone who falls into the going to hell category.
According to the good pastor, he made his comments in private, and explained, “I love the Jewish people and very much that some awful times were coming for them, but I did not wish that up them at all.” What can one say about a man with such generosity of spirt as to wish you a neat time in Hell? I am certain Mr. Harris will extend a warm welcome to any Jew who winds up in Hell.
