American writer, novelist, film-maker and author of 17 novels including the bestseller, The Notebook, Nicholas Sparks, 48, a practicing Catholic, has been branded “anti-Semite and homophobia” by Jew headmaster of a Catholic-Jewish interfaith school founded and funded by Nicholas Sparks.
Saul Hillel Benjamin, headmaster of the Epiphany School of Global Studies has filed a lawsuit against Sparks accusing him of having made him justify his Jewish heritage in front of the school, as parents of students fired insults at him.
Benjamin also claims that Sparks not only hates Jews, he also hates gays and Blacks. However, he did admit in the lawsuit that over 530 Blacks are enrolled in his school.
Sparks entertainment lawyer, Scott Schwimer, , has called his fellow Jew Benjamin “liar”. “As a gay, Jewish man who has represented Nick for almost 20 years I find these allegations completely ludicrous and offensive,” he told the press.
Schwimer seems to confirm professor Sarah Schulman (College of Staten Island, New York), who as a Jewish lesbian herself, says the LGBT is part of Jewish identity.
Sparks’ 2013 novel, The Longest Ride’ is full of his admiration for the Jewish people living in the southern states where they played a major role in African slavery.
On September 9, 2013, Curt Schleier, claimed at the Jewish Daily Forward that Sparks grew-up in a Jewish neighborhood with lot of Jewish friends. He also claimed that the main character in The Longest Ride is true story of Ira Levinson, a Jewish man who became Sparks’ surrogate grandfather. “After Sparks’s grandparents divorced, his grandmother moved to San Diego, where she kept company with a Jewish gentleman,” Schleier said.
I don’t care who is telling the truth – but, I would like to remind Sparks of his Pope Francis June 2014 fatwa: Inside every Christian is a Jew.
