Fox apologizes to Jews for poll on who murdered Jesus

By Dan Gilgoff, CNN.com Religion Editor

(CNN) - Fox Latin America has pulled and apologized for an online poll that asked who was responsible for Jesus’ death and included Jews as a possible response.

The poll had been posted on a Facebook page for National Geographic Cable TV in Latin America as part of a promotional effort for a Christmas special on the channel, according to the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Jewish group.

The National Geographic Channel in Latin America is a member of Fox International Channels, part of News Corp.

“Christmas Special is coming to Nat Geo… Who do you think responsible for the death of Jesus?” the Spanish-language poll asked, according to the Wiesenthal Center.

The multiple-choice responses were “Pontius Pilate; The Jewish People; the High Priests.”

On Wednesday, the Wiesenthal Center announced that the National Geographic Channel in Latin America had removed the poll and apologized for it.

"We sincerely apologize for the publication of a poll on our website that might have unintentionally given place to interpretations, opinions or expressions of intolerance that might affect the Jewish community," Fox Latin America’s vice president for corporate communications and PR said in a statement.

“This would contradict the mission and spirit of National Geographic worldwide, which focuses on education for diversity through shows questioning our world,” said the vice president, Guadalupe Lucero.

"We have also taken appropriate measures to prevent such incidents in the future,” he said.

    Since he came to us to die for our sins, logic dictates that we ALL played a part in his death.

      Your claim has many parts that need to be accepted based on nothing but blind faith to come to your conclusion. First, he would have to have existed, then be reborn as a human, then killed as a human to pay some ransom price he set on our heads for the sin of eating his fruit from the tree he happened to plant right next to the hungry humans he just made. w t f...

      And now some groups are still trying to lay blame for something no one can prove ever even happened on specific racial groups who may or may not be the descendants of a small group of priests who may or may not have conspired to have a certain carpenters son murdered. And there is no racism at all, nope, none, because the other reason is just so sound...

    No one killed Jesus. He was a myth. No more real than Mithra, Horus and all the others.

    No crucifixion. No resurrection. No second coming. Nada.

      You do a great disservice to both Atheism and Skepticism with your pseudo-intellectual claims for which you provide no support. Any proof that Jesus never existed, especially when contemporary accounts state that he did live and was executed? You probably believe your own statement simply because it fits in with your beliefs, accepting it as true as a matter of faith alone without proof. Holy Be-Jebus- you sound like a X-tian!

      There's more to being a Skeptic than saying "I don't believe..." One needs to qualify their beliefs with facts and logical interpretations, and you have failed miserably.

      Yeah, go back to your X-Box and let the real thinkers like DumbG there conjecture about all the things no one can disprove, for to truly disprove anything you need complete knowledge of everything in the universe, and since no human will ever achieve that, people like DumbG can tell as many unproven "truths" as they want. They leave the burden of proof to the skeptics like true cowards.

    It's all mythology anyway. Paul and the Romans made the rumor of a crucifixion into a savior story by usurping other existing traditions, such as the Mithraic virgin birth, and death of the sun god Mithra. His birth was the 25th of December (Roman Calendar), and was a solstice celebration. Some crucified rebel/rabbi in Judea came to be named with a Greek moniker "Jesus" and the Greek word for savior "Christ." Paul created religious mythology that became popular because it practiced collectivism. That's in Acts. The Roman world could not hope to be converted if they were fingered as the perps, so the so-called Church Fathers wrote in the lines where the Jews take the blame; "Let it be on our heads and the heads of our children!" Scholars have proven this is a forgery. Christianity is a fake religion, a blend of Judaism and Paganism at best. It's problem is that it claims to be historically factual. But it is just an old hero tale withJewish aspects added in.

    I don't know why we even have a debate about who killed Jesus. The sole purpose of Jesus Christ life on Earth was to die for our sins. As a Christian, I believe his crucifixion was key to it all as Jesus told us it was.

      (1) Jesus died in about 30 C.E.
      (2) Hearsay is not acceptable evidence.

      Hearsay – hear•say/ˈhi(ə)rˌsā/
      Noun: Information received from other people that cannot be adequately substantiated; rumor.
      The report of another person's words by a witness, usually disallowed as evidence in a court of law.
      Synonyms: rumor – report – gossip – whisper – scuttlebutt – crap (mine)

      There were no eyewitness accounts of Jesus. The Gospels were written by god knows who in the third person. The Gospels were written with an agenda i.e., Jesus was the Messiah and Son of God.

      We know virtually nothing about the persons who wrote the gospels we call Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
      -Elaine Pagels, Professor of Religion at Princeton University, (The Gnostic Gospels)

      The bottom line is we really don't know for sure who wrote the Gospels.
      -Jerome Neyrey, of the Weston School of Theology, Cambridge, Mass. in "The Four Gospels," (U.S. News & World Report, Dec. 10, 1990)

      Jesus is a mythical figure in the tradition of pagan mythology and almost nothing in all of ancient literature would lead one to believe otherwise. Anyone wanting to believe Jesus lived and walked as a real live human being must do so despite the evidence, not because of it.
      -C. Dennis McKinsey, Bible critic (The Encyclopedia of Biblical Errancy)

      Mark was the first gospel (Markan Priority). Luke and Mathew copied from Mark and from a doc_ument called "Q". 90% of Mathew's gospel, is copied from Mark. Why would an eyewitness need to copy from Mark? Not just the same narratives, but the exact same words?

      There are no known secular writings about Jesus, that aren't forgeries, later insertions, or hearsay. NONE!

      Most of the supposed authors lived AFTER Jesus was dead. Can you say hearsay? Can you say "the dead tell no tales"?

      Philo of Alexandria (20 BC – 50 AD) a contemporary Jewish historian, never wrote a word about Jesus. This is odd, since Philo wrote broadly on the politics and theologies around the Mediterranean.

      Lucius Annaeus Seneca (ca. 4 BCE – 65 CE) A.K.A. Seneca the Younger. A contemporary of Jesus wrote extensively on many subjects and people. But he didn't write a word about a Jesus.

      Gaius Plinius Secundus (23 AD – August 25, 79 AD), better known as Pliny the Elder, was a Roman author, naturalist, and natural philosopher. Plinius wrote "Naturalis Historia", an encyclopedia into which he collected much of the knowledge of his time. There is no mention of a Jesus.

      The area in and surrounding Jerusalem served, in fact, as the center of education and record keeping for the Jewish people. The Romans, of course, also kept many records. Moreover, the gospels mention scribes many times, not only as followers of Jesus but the scribes connected with the high priests. And nothing about the Jesus. Nada! Not even something chiseled on a wall or carved into a tree like: "Jesus Loves Mary Magdalene".

      John 21:25 King James Version (KJV)
      25And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

      Golly Gee! You would think a fellow this "gifted" , would have at least been mentioned by one of these historians.
      There is a line in the musical Jesus Christ Superstar that says:"The rocks themselves would start to sing".


      We don't even have a wooden shelf that Jesus might have built. Or anything written by Jesus. God incarnate, and we don't even have a Mother's day card signed by Him.

      Mark 3:7- 8 King James Version (KJV)
      7But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great mult_itude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,
      8And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great mult_itude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him.

      Yet, not one of these adoring fans, bothered to draw a picture, chisel a bust, or even write down a description. Even Mohammad has a description. Virtually all important people do. And god, being god, could have preserved it.

      Huge groups of people following a man who had performed miracles...yet no historian of the time, commented on it.

      The Dead Sea Scrolls did not mention Jesus or have any New Testament scripture, as some have claimed.

      Jesus, if he existed, was not considered important enough to write about by any contemporary person. The myth hadn't had a chance to flourish. The future stories and miracles needed time to grow and spread.

      Paul's writings were the first, about Jesus. But, Paul's writing was done 25 to 30 years after Jesus was dead. In a primitive, ultra-supersti_tious society, 25 years is a lot of time for a myth to grow. Twenty-five years was most of the average person's lifespan in the 1st Century.

      No television, No electric lights. People mostly sat around and told stories... Ever played "telephone"? A story is started at the beginning of a group. Each person passes the story along to the next person. The person at the end retells the story and it is compared to the original. Often the ending story is totally different from the original.

      Also, when you have a superhero, it is beyond belief that this hero's deeds would not get better in the telling.

      "The Messiah must be a descendent of King David. (Jeremiah 23:5, 33:17; Ezekiel 34:23-24) Although the Greek Testament traces the genealogy of Joseph (husband of Mary) back to David, it then claims that Jesus resulted from a virgin birth, and, that Joseph was not his father. " – Copyright 2008 – Jews for Judaism

      The authors of the gospels, blew it. They gave Spiderman oops, I mean Jesus, two separate genealogies both for a man (Joseph) who wasn't actually Jesus' father.

      Some people feel that Paul, not Jesus, is the real father of what most Christians believe today (Pauline Christianity).
      Paul never actually met Jesus. His knowledge and faith was the result of hearsay and an epileptic "vision".

      "In more recent times, this opinion has found support from the fact that sight impediment-including temporary blindness lasting from several hours to several days-has been observed as being a symptom or result of an epileptic seizure and has been mentioned in many case reports."
      Source: http://www.epilepsiemuseum.de/alt/paulusen.html

      The Christian Right has embraced Paul as the moral lawgiver. Paul's First Ep_istle of Paul to the Thessalonians, is often quoted by the Republicans. You never hear them quote Jesus' advice to the rich. You don't bite the hand that feeds you.

      Questions on the Crucifixion story:
      "Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save."

      Mark 15:31
      "Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe..." Mark 15:32

      It would appear, that the chief priests are admitting that Jesus "saved" others. If they knew this, then there is no reason for them to demand that Jesus descend from the cross, in order for them to believe. They already admitted to knowing of Jesus' "miracles".

      This is just an obvious embellishment by Mark. A work of fiction possibly constructed to make it appear that some Old Testament "prediction" was fulfilled. Like:

      "I offered my back to those who beat me, my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard; I did not hide my face from mocking and spitting." – Isaiah 50:6

      "The claim that Jesus will fulfill the Messianic prophesies when he returns does not give him any credibility for his “first” coming. The Bible never speaks about the Messiah returning after an initial appearance. The “second coming” theory is a desperate attempt to explain away Jesus’ failure." – Copyright 2008 – Jews for Judaism

      Actually the tasks left undone, are the result of Jesus being a myth. Consider, that it's been 2000+ years. I don't think those "other" tasks are gonna be done. LOL

      Here is another:
      1 Corinthian 15:14-17 – Paul says Christianity lives or dies on the Resurrection.

      Matthew 12:40 – Jesus said, that he would be buried three days and three nights as Jonah was in the whale three days and three nights.

      Friday afternoon to early Sunday morning is only 2 days at the most. Or, if you count Friday and Sunday as entire days, then you could get 3 days and 2 nights. This is a gimme though. The Mary's went to the grave at sunrise and it was empty.
      Obviously, the believers spin this like a pinwheel. I have seen explanations like: Jesus was actually crucified on Wednesday or maybe Thursday; The prophesy actually means 12 hour days, and not 24 hour days; The partial days are counted as full days. This one is true, but still doesn't add up.
      At any rate, the crucifixion day and number of days and nights Jesus spent in the grave, is disputed.

      It looks very much like, that Jesus was not in the grave for 3 days and 3 nights. The prophecy was not fulfilled.
      1 Corinthian 15:14-17 – Paul says Christianity lives or dies on the Resurrection. Hmm...

      And what of this?:
      Jesus had healed a woman on the Sabbath!:

      Luke 13 31:33 KJV
      31The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee.
      32And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.
      33Nevertheless I must walk to day, and tomorrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.

      NOTE that Jesus is saying, it is impossible for a prophet (Himself) to be killed outside of Jerusalem.
      Yet, Jesus WAS killed outside Jerusalem!

      Calvary or Golgotha was the site, outside of ancient Jerusalem’s early first century walls, at which the crucifixion of Jesus is said to have occurred. OOoopsie!

      And there is this:
      According to Luke 23:44-45, there occurred "about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour, and the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst."
      Yet not a single secular mention of a three hour ecliptic event got recorded. 'Cause it didn't happen!

      Mathew 27 51:53
      51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ crucifixion and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.

      How come nobody wrote about zombies running through the cities? 'Cause it is all b.s.

      An interesting note, which should not be ignored:
      "The same phenomena and portents of the sudden darkness at the sixth hour, a strong earthquake, rent stones, a temple entrance broken in two, and the rising of the dead have been reported by multiple ancient writers for the death of Julius Caesar on March 15, 44 BC." – Sources Wikipedia (John T. Ramsey & A. Lewis Licht, The Comet of 44 B.C. and Caesar's Funeral Games, Atlanta 1997, p. 99–107


      If you can't even believe the crucifixion story how likely is the resurrection account to be true? In a book that is a mix of fiction and "fact", how do you know which is which? Especially, since all of the bible seems very unlikely and does not fit with the reality we see around us.?

      Then there is the "testimony" of Jesus himself, who explicitly stated that some of his disciples would not die until Jesus inst_ituted the Kingdom, and that his generation would not pass away until all his prophecies of the end of the world had been fulfilled:

      [Jesus Speaking]
      Matthew 24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

      I know, spin, spin, spin. But the truth is, the authors of the Gospels wrote that Jesus would be back in the 1st Century.
      Jesus could not be wrong and be god. Gossip and deceit, could

      If Jesus was the Messiah and the Son of God, who died for man's redemption, then this would be the most important event in the history of man.

      Having gone to the trouble of impregnating a human and being born god incarnate and dying for mankind's sins, why wouldn't god have ensured there was tons of evidence that this was true? Multiple Writings by contemporary eyewitnesses – Jews and Romans and Greeks.

      You are going to want to say that there IS lots of evidence, but look at reality: There are way more people, in the world, who are not Christians (67%) than who are (33%). Obviously, the evidence is not adequate to convince even a majority of the world's people.

      So, only ~33% of the world believe Jesus was the Messiah and Son of God. I would expect better performance from an almighty god.? A politician with a 33% approval rating would be considered a failure.

      You can't convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it's based on a deep-seated need to believe. – Carl Sagan

      You said: "Speak for yourself. I was not even born yet, and had not had the opportunity to commit a sin. Think with your brain!"

      It is believed that original sin is passed on to each child through the father's semen.

      St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430 C.E.) understood Paul to have taught that Adam's sin was hereditary. He held that Original Sin passed on from generation to generation through the father's sperm in the act of $exual intercourse.

    Greed, power, lack of faith in God's word are just a few of the responsible factors. Modern day Judaism is a false religion because they did not accept Christ. They expected a powerful leader that would destroy other non Jewish nations and were so caught up in rote religion (dietary restrictions, etc...), that they missed the boat on Jesus' important spiritual message.

    Umm no the jews are deathly afraid of jesus' message. He is the one that condemns usury (charging interest on loans) and it was the jews who created and practiced it.. This is why usury had been outlawed for hundreds of years until.. you guessed it the jews managed to lobby to allow it. Take a look at all our problems today and interest is sitting right at the root

    December 30, 2011 at 3:51 pm |
    • allanhowls

      This is a flat-out lie. Charging interest was around for at least a century, but Christians prohibited themselves from loaning money, yet they still required the service, so THEY set up Jews in the banking industry, much in the same way an estranged wife hires a hitman to do her dirty work. Usury was only illegal to Christians in Christian communities. You're either intentionally lying, or you've never read an actual history book.

      You need to read real books, and put away that tired old anti-semitism that your church and politicians taught you. It's all made-up stories in order to make you scared of "those people." C'mon, you're better than that.

    The fact is Jesus wasn’t killed at all. The people during his time tried to kill him as they killed John and John’s dad, Zachariah. All mighty God saved his messenger Jesus and ascended him in front of the disciples to heaven and one of the big signs that this life will end is the return of Jesus to earth. You could refer to the Quran for the whole story of Jesus from the time his mother Mary was raised by Zachariah, became pregnant, gave birth to Jesus to the time of his ascendance to heaven.

      Critics of Christianity claimed Jesus Christ was in fact an illegitimate son of a Roman soldier called Panthera. Such accusations were presented by the Roman Critic Celsus (citing Jewish traditions) in the 2nd century AD and of course, denied by Christian Apologists.

    Kevin, we are in agreement, If there is a God then there is no Free Will. Since we all agree that we have Free Will, we can conclude that there is no God. Problem Solved.......

      Yes, but its gods plan to make us think we have free will. ROFL (please ignore the contradictions, and the man behind the curtain)

    The religious and political authorities were responsible 2000 years ago and would be responsible today. The religions of this world serve after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; 2 Cor. 11:13-15).

    When the Word of God records in Revelation 12:9 that the whole world has been deceived it stands correct.

    For a better understanding how and by whom this whole world has been deceived we invite you to read all the pages and articles of the website http://www.aworlddeceived.ca

    Ok we can discriminate against muslims, christians, white people, germans, but heaven forbid we say anything at all about LGBTs or Jews.

      So you're not upset by bigotry, you're upset because you're not allowed to be an anti-semite?

      I am not an anti-semite. I am pointing out inconsistencies. As well as I am talking about contemporary issues, not that of 60 years ago.

      White, Christian, land owning males have historically had such a hard time in America, facing all that discrimination and bigotry that kept them from acheiving their full potentials as citizens.

      Your question is based on a false premise. I see no evidence that discrimination against any of those groups is condoned. That said, given the persecution the Jews have endured in modern history it should be obvious why there is heightened sensitivity in their case.

    I have an idea for a poll..... Why is Fox News so lame? 1) they are brain-dead ideologues, 2) there is a lot of money to be made off of stupid people looking for a scapegoat 3) if Limbaugh can make millions flaming the fires of ignorance and hatred, why can`t we?, 4) they are creating their own reality, 5), all of the above.

      You said: "I do not accept the apology."

      Good for you! Fox News caters to the Christian Right. The Christian Right are fascists.

      Remember, the only reason the Christian Right wants Israel to be protected so badly, is because they want the Mosque of Omar to be torn down and the temple rebuilt. This they believe, will bring the mythical Jesus back, with presents and lots of sweets for all the kids. Anyway, the Christians don't love the Jews, they just want them to fulfill their stupid prophesy.
