Actress Melissa Joan Hart is being accused of antisemitism for telling her 6-year-old son that only people who believe in Jesus are “good”:
Hart, known for her starring role in “Sabrina the Teenage Witch,” discussed her religious observance on the “Journeys of Faith with Paula Faris” podcast last week.
“We don’t know if these people are good people. We don’t know if they believe in Jesus … and he really took the Jesus part to heart,” Hart said she told her son when he was moving from a Christian preschool to a secular school.
Her son made friends with a Jewish boy on the school bus and asked his mother: ‘If you’re Jewish, how do you get to heaven?’
Hart said the Jewish boy’s mother called her after their sons started discussing religion and they had “chats” about their son’s religious questions until they were in the sixth grade. The actress said the conversations became “a little more heated” and led to “some problems.”
Hart said she told her son the importance of “respecting each other’s beliefs and listening to each other.”
She was pilloried on social media for her remarks, and for using an instance with a Jewish child as the example in the interview.
“Holy crap that’s some casually dropped antisemitism in a completely mainstream fluff piece … this is fairly terrifying and just gross,” one tweet read.
Another said: “I found her questioning of Jews & their beliefs/character to be quite offensive. It’s antisemitic & worse she’s raising her kids to be antisemitic. Didn’t the Pittsburgh temple massacre teach anyone anything?”
If this heart-warming story teaches us anything, it’s that it’s becoming increasingly impossible to be a sincere Christian without being accused of being an antisemite. In fact, if you call yourself a Christian and you haven’t ever been accused of being an antisemite, chances are you’re not really taking the words of Christ very seriously. The Jews consider the New Testament to be so antisemitic that they want to censor many of the disparaging remarks the Christ made about them.
But let’s face it, Melissa Joan Hart’s Christian views might be considered very liberal and accommodating vis a vis the Jews. She does seem to believe that Jews who believe in Jesus can go to heaven. If we learned anything from the Inquisition, it would be that that’s not necessarily true either. In fact, the Catholic Church no longer claims that Jews must convert to be saved; that somehow the Jews now have a separate path of redemption. Perhaps it’s time for Christians to forget about magically turning Jews into Christians with some “holy” water and focus on something that’s even within the realm of possibility.
Steve Anderson revealed that most Jews believe in a resurrection on earth and do not believe in heaven as a place in the after life. The other day on the Big Bang Theory the Jew said we Jews do not believe in heaven. The Rabbi was scathing in saying this is what you tell little children. The Jewess is incorrect. You see multi culturalisism does not count for Jews they do not repect your religions nor your cultures. They are the most inflexible to the idea of living in harmony with others. Happy Holidays.
She tells truth
The best thing that will come out of these particular articles and incidences will be Christians recognizing that they are “evil anti-semites” whether they are Zionists or not. May white Christians soon come to grips with the fact that any profession of Christianity IS “anti-semitism”…so get used to it. Why do none of us seem to remember what used to be the most famous Christian “nursery rhyme”: Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me…? Time for white man to thicken his skin and grow a set of balls!
Speaking for me or all. You don’t know me and I don’t know you. Jesus is Lord by the Holy Spirit! You must be born again! John 3:33 & John 3:7 God is NOT willing that any perish. Tell me is the Talmud anti anything?
According to The Talmud, Christ is the son of a whore, and he’s burning in Hell in excrement. It is the most anti-Christ book ever written. Many Popes ordered that all copies of The Talmud be burned for the degenerate and anti-Christ content. Every Christian should know what The Talmud truly says about them:

She’s technically correct. Jews can’t go to heaven unless they accept Christ. There is some debate as to whether or not Christ reveals himself to Jews at their moment of death because no one knows what happens.
The Jews of the Old Testament went to hell. Christ died and went to hell and preached to them so that they could have salvation.
This is not a radical belief. It’s in the bible.
Would you mind sharing any verses that lead you to that conclusion?
Michael A. Corley wrote, “Christ died and went to hell and preached to [the Jews] so that they could have salvation.” I’ve read the NT quite a few times, but I have to admit, I missed that part that you are alluding to. Perhaps you’re reading a different Bible, maybe The New New Testament?
It’s probably worth noting that “Jew” in scripture is actually referring to anyone living in Judea. The term “Jew” is a transliteration from that same word referring to Judeans. This is misleading for two reasons:
– We assume that in Christ’s time all the Israelites lived in Judea, which is not true (Hint: The Greeks and Romans were Israelites too – 1 Maccabees 12).
– We assume that the “Jews” today are actually descendants of Israelites, which is also not true.
Anyway, I believe Michael is referring to 1 Peter 3:18-20, which is referring to descendants of Adam who predate even Abraham.
Truth is truth. The antisemitic is Bull! YouTube Marching to Zion by Pastor Steve Anderson…very well done. Nobody hates Jews or anyone else without a good reason. Rejection of Christ either Jew or Gentile means you DIE in your sins. John 8:44
Until they don’t recognize Jesus as Messiah they won’t go to Heaven…and also according to their own religion they cannot go to Heaven but to Sheol which is the Limbo!
Good on her for telling her son the truth.
But…doesnt it seem odd that suddenly the kid sits nexts to an antiChrist and his [the jew] momma gets all outraged and the [[[media]]] is called? No, nothing to see here, just move along…
Hey, guess what antiChrist? NO, jews will NOT see eternal life in paradise, but will go to – as Jesus said – their father the devil. AND, being anti-jew isnt antisemitic ! jews are NOT ‘semites’ to begin with. As Jesus said, ‘they are of their father the devil’ and when speaking of satan, ‘he was a liar from the beginning’ and ‘when he speaks a lie he speaks his native tongue’. Apple doesnt fall far from the tree, huh?
95% of Jews claim to be atheists, so why do Jews even care when Christians don’t believe that Jews will go to heaven or can even be saved? If God does not exist, as most Jews believe, then they should be happy that they aren’t going to a “non-existent” heaven. Jews believe far more in antisemitism than they do God.
