(RNS) Steven Spielberg’s "Lincoln'' will probably pick up a few Oscars on Sunday, and it shows that Americans will never tire of our 16th president. While the film centers on the fight to abolish slavery in 1865, two years earlier Lincoln used his powers to correct another injustice aimed at American Jews.
