The American Taliban: Good for the Jews?
Just because the fundies think that Christ is coming back to boil your Jewish blood, does that mean you can’t be best buddies? Maybe not. Reuter’s reports that some American Jews and Jewish groups are reconsidering their chummy relations with American Taliban.
“Every room (from bedroom to classroom) in the American mansion is under assault to impose either de facto or de jure a Christian theocracy — I call them Christocrats,” said Rabbi James Rudin, former head of interreligious activities for the American Jewish Committee…. Rudin said he has met pastors “who say that Jesus Christ is the ultimate leader of America and that God’s law trumps the Constitution … I’m very concerned.”
Welcome to the concerned club, Rabbi. But what the hell took you so long?
