And in doing so you're inevitably invoking theological overtones and the inherent superstitions that accompany it. Holokaustos from a 3rd century translation of the Old Testament has nothing to do with "massacres", genocide, or even "roughing up". It was an act of love and devotion to YHVH.DabbingIsSoMuchFun wrote: ↑Mon Feb 04, 2019 5:33 pmI can refer to any massacre as a Holocaust. However, the Holocaust is, well, the one from 41-45. You do know also which Holocaust is being referred to, so you're just deflecting. That dictionary didn't get blasted for anti-semitism or HD so it's by default false.
Hmmm, The YMCA, or Young Man Christian Association and YHVH, perhaps tenuous but there's a connection here...

He's got all the right rules!
He's got all the right toys!
And he circumcised all the boys!
