Letter to The Editor - The Roman share in the guilt for an unjust execution is clearly stated

To The Australian     Christians are entitled to query the "unreserved" nature of the apology published by Carey Grammar senior chaplain Gerry Riviere ("School apology for 'anti-Semitic' slur", 4/2). His original statements, which drew adverse criticism, appear to be in accord with the gospel texts in the Bible and in no way can be fairly interpreted as holding that "the Jewish people as a whole" can be "held responsible for the death of Jesus." The Gospels themselves are not anti-Jewish. Their central figure, the adored Saviour, is Jewish. So are his followers. Moreover, the Roman share in the guilt for an unjust execution is clearly stated. This latest episode shows that in the contemporary world some Jews are too demanding and some Christians too yielding.
