Rydzyk's simple-mindedness is best shown by the fact that he doesn't see anyone else's views as having any value at all
- Please give evidence (facts) that Fathert Rydzyk 'doesn't see anyone else's views as having any value at all.' In fact, your judgment better applies to Father Rydzyk's main adversary - Michnik, owner of the Gazeta Wyborcza (and fanatic zionist-Polonophobe). It's he who seems to be keen on keeping the monopoly on 'informing' the Poles, the evidence of which is his hacks' constant smear campaign against Father Rydzyk and his media. The purpose of this campaign is to wipe out Rydzyk's media from the Polish media market.
As to people scared away from the church, that comes from people I've spoken to personally, not public appearances
- This seems to signify that even if some people have really been scared away from the Church by Rydzyk, the phenomenon must be totally insignificant in terms of numbers. I wonder how on earth one can be scared away from the Church by the extremely pious Father Rydzyk?
Jews are a very diverse group of people. Some carry a serious and unjustified bias against Poles, and some don't.
- The problem is this 'diversity' is extremely teeny-weeny when it comes to the subject of Poland and Poles, and those Jews who are racist towards the Poles are legion, whereas those who aren't are very few, if any.
You can debate various issues with some of them, and others will just ignore all arguments, no matter how reasonable, and keep repeating the usual mantras.
- How idyllic and optimistic.
Lumping them all into one category is as crazy as assigning uniform character traits or intentions to all Poles, Americans, Brits or Zimbabweans.
- Any Jew would perhaps feel very offended if I didn't classify him as a Jew? So there are uniform categories of people, e.g. Jews. And yes there are traits and 'intentions' that whole groups share. Polonophobia of Jews is an example of such a mass attitude.
