After a long time, a baby named Jesus was born and he grew up and was a good man. He made some of the people who believed in God so angry that they killed him. But some people thought he was sent by God and they worshiped him and wrote about the things Jesus said and did while he was on Earth. Finally the people wrote a book about how God would get revenge on all the people who didn’t follow His rules. The End.

I just found out that Thomas Jefferson actually put together his own version of the Gospels. He called it, The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth . This is how he did it: He took six bibles – two in English, two in French and two that were in Greek and Latin. Then he actually cut passages out of the Gospels and pasted them back in another book, in chronological order. He put the same passages in English, French, Latin and Greek next to each other so he could compare them.

The final book, called The Jefferson Bible , is 86 pages long and is still around. The Smithsonian bought it from Jefferson’s great-granddaughter in 1895 for the huge sum of $400.

Bowdoin College in Maine and Vassar College in upstate New York are roughly the same size. They compete for the same students. Both have long traditions of academic excellence. But one of those schools is trying hard to close the gap between rich and poor in American society—and paying a high price for its effort. The other is making that problem worse—and reaping rewards as a result.

“Food Fight,” the second of the three-part Revisionist History miniseries on opening up college to poor kids, focuses on a seemingly unlikely target: how the food each school serves in its cafeteria can improve or distort the educational system.

I felt something similar the other day, when I opened up the New York Times last Sunday and saw that a bunch of Jewish leaders had taken out an ad, saying that Christianity was not responsible for the Holocaust. Well, that's nice, I thought, now where's the ad saying that Islam is not responsible for Hiroshima?

But after awhile I got to thinking about it. I can understand why Jews think that Christianity might be to blame for the Holocaust. After all, isn't it frequently said that the Holocaust represented the "culmination of two millennia of Jew hatred"? The basis for that belief of course is because of the disparaging treatments of Jews in the New Testament, for example, because the Jews are portrayed as major players in the Crucifixion, and because Martin Luther made some nasty remarks about Jews while sitting at the dinner table, and because the Oberammergau passion play makes Jews out to be mean, or at least, did, until the ADL got them to re-write the script.

It's interesting though that all of these presumed allegations about Christianity being to blame for the Holocaust the critics rarely provide any quotes. For example, they don't give us quotes like this one:
