Thomas Kennedy (1776-1832)

  • Christian Member of the House
  • Proponent of Jews, wrote a poem about them

"What! Still reject the fated race,
Thus long denied repose-
What! Madly striving to efface
The rights that heaven bestows.

Say, flows not in each Jewish vein,
Unchecked — without control —
A tide as pure, as free from stain
As warms the christian soul?

Do ye not yet the times discern,
That these shall cease to roam,
That Shiloh pledged for their return,
Will bring his ransomed home?

Be error quick to darkness hurl'd!
No more with hate pursue,
For He who died to save the world,
Immanuel — was a Jew."
