Dudes, hurry up and help us bring Christ back, so he can throw you into a pit of burning fire!

A Dallas evangelical pastor who once said that Jewish people are going to hell and a megachurch televangelist who claimed that Hitler was part of God’s plan to return Jews to Israel both played prominent roles on Monday in the opening ceremony of the new American Embassy in Jerusalem.

Robert Jeffress, who spoke at President Trump’s private inaugural prayer service and is the pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, delivered a prayer at the opening ceremony on Monday, while the Rev. John C. Hagee, a televangelist who founded Christians United for Israel and leads a San Antonio megachurch, gave the closing benediction.

Despite their comments about Jewish people, the two pastors are among the leading pro-Israel voices in the evangelical Christian world. Many evangelicals believe that American foreign policy should support Israel to help fulfill biblical prophecies about the second coming of Christ.

Great. We've got ISIS trying to bring the end times from the Islamic perspective. Hamas just trying to kill all the Jews they can. And Trump trying to bring about the end times from an anarchistic / wacky Christian cultist perspective.

Can someone just start playing Ave Satani instead of Hail to the Chief ?

I'm sure Israel will gladly accept benefits of deranged people acting out their fairy tale and will tell them to get lost once the conversions start in earnest.

I mean, that is what Christian dogma generally states... But yeah, poor taste when you're a guest.

The dichotomy comes from many Christians viewing Isreal as holy land unrelated to Jews. And when really tasked to consider it, just don’t like Muslims at all, giving children of Judea a hall pass. There’s an entire if-then decision tree matrix Christians have to contort into.

The Israelis are used to the sight of crazed Christians running around Jerusalem. Jews and Musilims. too. It's called Jerusalem Syndrome.


Jerusalem syndrome -Wikipedia
[en.wikipedia.org]
Jerusalem syndrome is a group of mental phenomena involving the presence of either religiously themed obsessive ideas, delusions or other psychosis-like experiences that are triggered by a visit to the city of Jerusalem.

Israel very cynically takes advantage of this in order to stay in bed with the USA.

Put yourself in the position of the Israelis. They have been under siege since day one in 1948. They feel they are forced to accept any support they can find. They are fighting for their lives. They know these Christians are loonies, but then on the other hand, they also know that Jesus isn't coming back...ever.
