    Germany's top court ruled it will allow an antisemitic medieval display to
    stay on a church, marking another setback for Jews who seek the removal of
    the sculpture.

    The Federal Court of Justice, Germany's top appeals court, upheld rulings
    from lower courts that dismissed the case, saying there was no breach of
    the law in the St. Marien Church in Wittenberg, Germany, displaying the sculpture. The Jewish plaintiff in the case has fought a court battle for
    years to remove the 13th century "Judensau" or "Jew Sow" on the church,
    which depicts a rabbi holding the tail of a pig, an animal considered
    unclean in Judaism, as two Jewish children drink from the pig's teats.


    The church displaying the Judensau had installed an information board and
    a bronze plaque under the antisemitic stone carving in 1988 to remember
    the 6 million Jews who died in the Holocaust. The court claimed the church transforming the stone carving into a memorial as a testimony to the
    Christian church's anti-Jewish attitudes over the centuries was one way
    the church did not violate the law in displaying the carving, a statement
    from the court said.

    The Central Council of Jews said it understood the court's decision not to remove the sculpture, but it added that the explanatory display under it
    is not enough, with Council President Josef Schuster saying the church's defamation of the Jews "must be a thing of the past once and for all."

    The Judensau is one of about two dozen similar sculptures from the Middle
    Ages that are still displayed on churches around Germany and Europe.

    Wittenberg, Germany, was also the town where Martin Luther, an influential German priest in the 1500s, nailed his theses challenging Catholicism to a church door in 1517, which led to the Protestant Reformation in Germany.

    Thank you for cleaning up the disaster of the 2008-2017 Obama / Biden
    fiasco, President Trump.

    Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
    The World According To Garp. Obama sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood
    queer liberal democrat donors.

    President Trump boosted the economy, reduced illegal invasions, appointed dozens of judges and three SCOTUS justices.
