But, Jews don't "act out" any hostility, as Catholics have done over history in pogroms, Inquisitions, the Holocaust, and legal disenfranchisement.
Pogroms were more a Christian Orthodox thing. The Inquisition did not target the Jews but Christian 'heretics'; and the Holocaust was done by a majoritarily Protestant country. The Catholic Church was far less antisemitic than Luther. The Popes gave the sepharad Jews safe haven after the reconquista, etc. your hatred is misinformed and mistargeted.
But more importantly, you are saying that prejudice is fine as long as it's not acted on. That is in fact impossible. Prejudice are ALWAYS acted upon. The only reason you -- for instance -- don't kill or otherwise victimise Catholics is that you can't.
First, Spanish Jews arrived in Spain 300 BC. They were kicked out with the advent of the Inquisition in 1492, because they were not authentic/true Spaniards. They were the truest of Spaniards, having been there since 300 BC. They were not Catholics, and the Spanish Church needed money, having just spent their last penny on getting the Moors out of Grenada, to complete La Reconquista. What better way than to confiscate Jewish wealth.
And, the Holocaust was not just effected by Lutheran Germans. Don't try to sell me on that canard. And, while Luther was anti-Semitic, the Catholic church being older was the original author of Christian anti-Semitism.
No. Prejudice is not always acted on. That is what makes for cosmopolitan living and many diverse groups can live together in harmony, even though they are alienated from each other.
And, you should stop accusing me of hating Catholics. I just avoid them. The same way Protestant Americans might cloister themselves in small town America where the percent of Catholics is miniscule. You might say I am contemptuous of Catholics, but not hate. And, it is total fabrication that I have any desire to victimize Catholics. I just want to avoid them, especially the undereducated class, and that can be hard to do in urban America. Too many of them are undereducated. Those that are well educated are basically clannish amongst themselves, reflecting their parochial education that might have included a desire to interact with only Catholics on a social level.
And, you used the word "kill." That is a nasty canard based on nothing. In my opinion, that is what annoys some Gentiles - Jews can be held in contempt, but don't act out. You see, Jews are different, since they had a conscience somewhat earlier than other demographics acquired one, in my opinion. It might be hardwired better into their DNA?
Please don't reply, since your position is just pretending that the world-wide, hierarchal Catholic church is just like the non-hierarchal Jewish faith. Apples and oranges. And Jews are not given a Cathechism like Catholics must memorize. More apples and oranges. No one wishes you harm. Some people just think of the Catholic church is a multi-national organization where only men meet in secret, behind closed doors. That is far from Judaism.
This back and forth posting is based on your claim that the anti-Catholic is no better than the anti-Semite, or something like that. Well, prior to 1948, in the modern era, Jews had no homeland, so they had "no blood on their hands." However, in many countries, anti-Semites, for over a millenia, had blood on their hands from their hatred of Jews (as "Christ Killers," as too successful, as a convenient scapegoat, for starters). You need to accept that the Catholic church wrote the script of hating Jews. Low class Gentiles, often Catholics, were only too happy to act on that script.
Let's wave good-bye.
