CHICAGO (RNS) — During a standing-room-only speech at a Roman Catholic church in Chicago this week, Minister Louis Farrakhan attempted to defend himself against charges he promotes violence and hate.
But then, in a speech livestreamed on the church website and on Facebook, he turned to a familiar refrain: anti-Semitism.
“I just know the truth,” Farrakhan said at St. Sabina Roman Catholic Church. “And I’m here to separate the good Jews from the satanic Jews.”
Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, called Farrakhan’s remarks “vintage Farrakhan” and wondered why Chicago Catholics would invite him to speak.
