Untitled[edit]

"... it has been claimed that Schochet uses anger, polemics and an audiences lack on knowledge [sic] to convince them the Jesus could not be the Messiah."

This passage beginning "it has been claimed" tries to disguise the writer's own self-interested argument as an observation. That aside, one could objectively state that Schochet uses anger and polemics in presenting his own positions and swaying his audiences; but, in contrast, the statement that Schochet uses an audience's lack of knowledge to make his point intends to quietly make the argument that Schochet is undoubtedly wrong and that Jesus must be the messiah -- the writer's circular argument. The sentence assumes that Christianity is a truth discoverable by people in possession of adequate knowledge and that counter-arguments are based on ignorance and deception.

Agree. Also, the cited source for that section does not appear to be one that is considered reliable for the purposes of Wikipedia--it looks more like a personal essay. Having negative poorly sourced statements is particularly problematic for a biography of a living person, so I will remove this paragraph. Cheers, CordeliaNaismith (talk) 03:12, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Rewrite needed[edit]

I've begun removing some of the many opinions and personal attacks in this article. It needs a lot more work.Edstat (talk) 03:52, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
