Mike Pence, great leader

WASHINGTONVice President Mike Pence told evangelical supporters of Israel that God had a hand in creating the state of Israel and that his support for the country is rooted in his faith.

So reports Religion News Service.

One wonders what kind of faith this is.

“Indeed, though Israel was built by human hands it is impossible not to sense that just beneath its history lies the hand of heaven,” Pence told the annual summit of Christians United for Israel on July 17. The group, founded by San Antonio pastor John Hagee, bills itself as the largest pro-Israel organization in the U.S. It is composed largely of evangelicals and Christian Zionists

Ridiculed by bible scholars everywhere they believe that Jews will be ingathered in Israel and then….

 

In his book The End of Days, Gershom Gorenberg says “The Jews die or convert. As a Jew, I can’t feel very comfortable with the affections of somebody who looks forward to that scenario…..They don’t love real Jewish people. They love us as characters in their story, in their play, and that’s not who we are, and we never auditioned for that part, and the play is not one that ends up good for us. If you listen to the drama they’re describing, essentially it’s a five-act play in which the Jews disappear in the fourth act.”
Bad theology begets bad practice

 

Pence has had a long history of Christian jihad as the Intercept described his bizarre career.

He has never wavered in his commitment to America-First militarism, the criminalizing of abortion, and utter hatred for gay people (unless they go into conversion therapy “to change their sexual behavior,” which Pence has suggested the government pay for).Pence has been at the forefront of the movement to defund Planned Parenthood.

 

Pence has an impressively atrocious record on environmental issues and a slavish devotion to big energy and big oil companies.

Forget all this. God somehow is behind Israel’s success.It can never be criticized. It has divine protection. The Palestinians, either nowhere to be seen or all terrorists.

Mike Pence, great American—and now mum on his fundamentalist Christianity.

    Mike Pence fell beneath every radar during the Trump election. Thankfully Ted you have cast some light on this Neanderthal.

    The entire evangelical movement needs reform. Interesting they never do political action through the church. What a joke!

    This Pence creature is an absolute moron. But it took his “unblemished character” and evangelical label to lure the dumb Catholics and evangelicals to Trumps corner.

    The complete absence of any critical thinking within churches is so absolutely abysmal. Thank God for people like Gregory Baum who stood up to the Neanderthals of his church and was instrumental in bringing about some much needed reform. Sadly, not enough.
