Apologetic Quote of the Day

Jews for Jesus executive director David Brickner in a letter to comedian Jackie Mason:

To me, and most of our Jews for Jesus staff, you project an image of a loving, caring and wise Jewish grandfather.

Mason also, apparently, projects the image of a not particularly litigious Jewish grandfather, as, in wake of Brickner’s letter, he has agreed to drop a lawsuit over pamphlets that featured his picture and the words “Jackie Mason … A Jew for Jesus?” Outside the courthouse yesterday, Mason was less conciliatory, according to the AP report: “There’s no such thing as a Jew for Jesus. It’s like saying a black man is for the KKK.” Sounds just like our grandfather, actually.
