We’re clearly dealing with a global upsurge in antisemitic speech and activity, and recently I’ve become aware of how prevalent antisemitism is among some Catholics on platforms like Twitter. To be frank, it’s horrifying. And I’m not talking here about people who are arguing about Israel or who seek the conversion of the world to Christ. I’m talking about people who claim that Jews are out to destroy Christianity, people who deny basic historical truths about the Holocaust, people who believe Jews control the World Bank, etc.
So my question is this: how can right thinking (as in properly formed thinking) Catholics respond to this? How can we confront and denounce it? What do you think would be most effective? Lay groups? Priests speaking out in homilies? Diocesan efforts? Individual responses to antisemitism when we see it? Something else entirely?
