It started off as a typical lunch at my desk getting caught up on people’s Facebook posts while I ate. Someone I knew over 20 years ago who reconnected with me recently on Facebook had posted a political comment over the weekend, and one of her friends had commented – twice – by saying something blatantly anti-Semitic. Dangerous as it is for me to type when I have steam coming out of my ears, I posted in reply, “As a Christian who works for a Jewish human service agency, I can’t tell you how much I object to those comments. I have nothing but love and respect for the management here, and I don’t think I’ve ever been treated better.” Then I finished my lunch and tried to concentrate on my work.
