Evangelicals, The Newt and WTF
OK, the Newt doesn’t makes sense, what else is new. But this one is so weirdo, I had to mention it.
“I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time they’re my age (his daughters) they will be in a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists and with no understanding of what it once meant to be an American (that this country was founded on xtian values/beliefs).” Quotes are mine.
Sooooo, If we are to be an atheist country, then how can we simultaneously be dominated by Islam. If Islam one day rules U.S. of A. (which will never happen) then I’m moving to Canada or Mexico. There are no atheist in Islam, well, no atheists that are alive. It is their way or the highway. It is impossible for both to happen at the same time. C’mon now, Newt, all that cheating on yer dying wife has yer brain all scrambled. I was just gonna mention that, but the article was some gems.
The Newt was speaking at the church of Rev. John Hagee. The Rev. is infamous for saying that Hitler was an ok dude for killing hella peeps and, of course, he cherry picks from the bible to justify that.
“God says in Jeremiah 16: ‘Behold, I will bring them the Jewish people again unto their land that I gave to their fathers. … Behold, I will send for many fishers, and after will I send for many hunters. And they the hunters shall hunt them.’ That would be the Jews,” Hagee had said in an earlier sermon (CNN Belief Blog).”
Here is where is gets weird’er. the Rev. also belongs to a Christian Zionist movement. For quite some time I didn’t understand why xtians would want to help Israel. Here it is…In order for the Christian prophecy of JC coming back to save his small elite number of true believers (certainly not everyone, afterall, then who would his dad have left to kill) and take them to heaven, the state of Israel must be established (and have a certain amount of peeps). The Jewish prophecy of a returning to their homeland (which I support, but that’s a diff. story) is not an end of itself; it is a step in the process of the Christian prophecy.
So the Rev. does two contradictory thingies at the same time. On one hand he needs the establishment of the Jewish homeland, and on the other hand, he was on Team Hitler. WTF? Meanwhile, The Newt, when he’s not getting hella divorces, is parading around the evangelical circles because he’s a thinking ’bout running fer some president. Hagee, The Rev., offered his support, but The Newt wisely turned him down. Good move on Newts part, he’s already known as a divorcee wife killer, it is probably better not to be associated with that Jew killer.
OK, I’m done now. Awesomeness.
