Killing in the Name of . . .

15 08 2006

BoingBoing had a link to this op-ed piece from the NYT which exposes the un-Christian beliefs of Christian fundamentalists who want to use the war in Lebanon and a war against Iran to hasten Armageddon.

Christian Zionists who use religious rhetoric to justify political
and military actions are no better than Jewish or Islamic
fundamentalists who make similar outlandish claims. Peace in the
Middle East should be about the liberty, independence and freedoms
of all the people of the region, and not about whose promised land
the Holy Land is.

Pat Robertson who is urging Israel to keep up its military actions admits that he believes most Jews will die during Armageddon – a fact which, he insists, does not make him a Nazi.
