The Inevitable Collapse of the Christian Coalition – “Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them” – Al Franken

November 24th, 2010 · No Comments · Christianity, Politics, Religion, US Politics

Bush has managed to form a coalition between Christian conservatives like Reed and mean antigovernment conservatives like Norquist. And hawkish Jewish neo-conservatives. The neo-cons and the Christian Right have formed a close bond on Israel. Though for slightly different reasons. Neo-cons support the Jewish state for the same reasons I do: because it is the only democracy in the region, and because they’re Jewish. Evangelical Christians fervently support the survival of Israel in order to fulfill the prophecy of the Second Coming, which, of course, will lead to the fiery death of all Jews. At that point, Bush’s coalition will collapse.
