Max Blumenthal: Tom Delay Ready for the Rapture
The Huffington Post's Max Blumenthal, whom you may remember brought us "Generation Chickenhawk: The
Unauthorized College Republican Convention Tour", takes his cameras to the "politically extreme" Christians United for Israel's annual Washington-Israel Summit, where plenty of people are preparing for the end of times.
Says Blumenthal: "...CUFI has an ulterior agenda: its support for Israel derives from the belief of [San Antonio-based megachurch pastor John] 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. Over a dozen CUFI members eagerly revealed to me their excitement at the prospect of Armageddon occurring tomorrow."
Tons o' fun!
