Well, This is a Little Awkward...

So according to a Bishop in Jerusalem and recorded by The Church of England Newspaper, Jews are no longer the chosen people:

CHRISTIANS have replaced Jews in God’s economy of salvation, the Bishop in Jerusalem, the Rt Rev Riah Abu al-Assal has told Israel Radio. In a wide-ranging interview broadcast on April 23, Bishop Riah told Israel Radio’s Arutz 7 programme that Christians had stepped into the place of Jews as the “true Israel”. God’s gift of the Law to Moses at Sinai was “conditional” Bishop Riah explained to the nationwide audience. “It was not only given to the Jews. God does not favour one party against another,” he said, citing the Apostle Paul in support of his proposition that Christians “are the new Israel. We are the chosen people.”


Shut cho mouth and say it ain't so! First we lose the coveted spot on American Idol, now we're no longer the Chosen people? What's next? Losing the diamond trade? Oh, wait...

    I once had a Southern Baptist (albeit a drunk gay one, but still an observant one) tell me that Jews were, and always will be the Chosen people. But not Chosen in the way we think, see, apparantly his church believes that Jews were chosen to be the biological vehicle to deliver Jesus upon the world. Therefor our reason for being Chosen has already been fulfilled BUT, according to the blurry Baptist, God is SO grateful at our physical forthbringing of the lord that he has kept us all Chosen and even though we decided to ignore his one and only we still get a 'get out of hell, and in to heaven free card'.
    After that I bought the Baptist a scotch. Didnt sleep with him though, if I am going for religious akwardness I prefer to feel up a Mormon, or a Catholic if necessary.

    I'm a big fan of Pentecostles myself. All that energy!
