Jim Hagee Interviewed on PRI's The World


The World did a fairly balanced article on the support of Christian Fundamentalist groups (Dominionist groups were not mentioned per se) for peace between Israel and the Palestinians. This included an interview with.. you guessed it, Jim Hagee. The site has not yet updated for the August 2 program but it should be up in the next few hours. The World's news presenter brought up the issue that groups like Hagee's support peace in the Middle East based upon the belief that Jesus will rule from the Temple Mount and Jews will convert to Christianity. Hagee had an unconvincing 'of course that's not the case' answer. Riiiiiight.

'Christians' 'United' 'for Israel'

Pretty much defining everything bad about the Dominion...

"I attended Christians United for Israel's annual Washington-Israel Summit. Founded by San Antonio-based megachurch pastor John Hagee, CUFI has added the grassroots muscle of the Christian right to the already potent Israel lobby. Hagee and his minions have forged close ties with the Bush White House and members of Congress from Sen. Joseph Lieberman to Sen. John McCain. In its call for a unilateral military attack on Iran and the expansion of Israeli territory, CUFI has found unwavering encouragement from traditional pro-Israel groups like AIPAC and elements of the Israeli government.

But CUFI has an ulterior agenda: its support for Israel derives from the belief of Hagee and his flock that Jesus will return to Jerusalem after the battle of Armageddon and cleanse the earth of evil. In the end, all the non-believers - Jews, Muslims, Hindus, mainline Christians, etc. - must convert or suffer the torture of eternal damnation."

America's Moral Decline and the Rise of False Christianity

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]brigidsblest)

by Karen Horst Cobb

“This is the year God wants to make you a millionaire.” The visiting evangelist stomped back and forth on the stage of the rented school building. His “hallelujahs” and “praise God” crescendos were followed by jumping up and down. Sweat ran down his face as he proclaimed that the church members would not need to be afraid if the economy collapses and their neighbors houses are foreclosed upon because they are blessed and will have all of their needs met. The service ended with the explanation that the first step to becoming a millionaire is to pledge $200 of “seed faith money” to the church .
