Today I was on Salon.com for awhile, came across Grumpy Girls rant on how America is going to the dogs, I mean fundamentalist Christians. I think fundamentalist Christian is what was meant….after reading the comments. I left a typo marred comment.
How can someone have history drummed into them and still get it wrong?
The short answer is because sometimes the names change. The longer answer involves evolution of political trends and policies. Still, I find it really hard to believe that they really swallow their own propaganda that the ‘Christian Right’ is their powerful Great Satan. Lurking to eat their babies and mob them on the streets.
Really, do you think that the large contingent of Christians who advocate Israel’s right to exist, and defend peoples rights to practice their religion are a band of Nazi’s? Do you think they hate Jews? Is that why the Islamic countries are so enraged over America’s and Christians outspoken support of Israel’s Sovereign right to be a safe country?
Grumpy Girl wants to know when Eastern European Jews knew when to leave the flood of murderous anti-Semitism. Many didn’t . And many did not have a place to go. This was a shameful situation. This is one reason I believe Israel must retain its existance.
But I also want the USA to be safe for all Jews and for all those who love freedom to live and worship as they believe….even the secular way of the atheist. To make the Evangelical Christian out as your enemy is just plain mistaken.
