Endtimes, Rapture, Bomb Iran, Bring 'Em On. Christians United For Israel

It was back in July that I featured the short film *Rapture Ready* where Max Blumenthal looked at the batshit crazy world Christians United For Israel, (CUFI) well this time it's Bill Moyers that takes us once more through the gates of the asylum, whereas Blumenthal's film showed some of the more recognisable in attendance, DeLay, Santorum and Lieberman, Moyers introduces McCain, Gingrich, Blunt and of course the ubiquitous Lieberman. ** I would thoroughly recommend watching this first.

From the transcript.

BILL MOYERS: Many of Washington's political elites came to them. Presidential contender Senator John McCain.

JOHN MCCAIN: It's very hard trying to do the Lords work in the city of Satan and I'm very grateful to have all of you here.

BILL MOYERS: Senator McCain was joined by House Minority Whip Roy Blunt.

ROY BLUNT: This is a mission, this is a vision that I believe is a vision for God's time.

BILL MOYERS: Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich...

NEWT GINGRICH: Because this group is made up of people who believe, they understand the passion that comes from belief.

BILL MOYERS: And Senator Joe Lieberman

JOSEPH LIEBERMAN: Of describing Pastor Hagee in the words that the Torah uses to describe Moses, he is an "Ish Elokim," a man of God and those words really do fit him; and, I'd add something else, like Moses he's become the leader of a mighty multitude, even greater than the multitude that Moses led from Egypt to the promised land.

And then a snippet from Hagee which says everything about the man his organisation and all the crazies in attendance, US foreignpolicy should be set by what is written in the Bible, the word of God as it were. Nice.

JOHN HAGEE, SEPTEMBER 18, 2005: But the Palestinians have never owned the land. I want you to hear this very clearly. The land of Israel was given to Abraham, Issac and Jacob and their seed in an eternal covenant. It is recorded in the book of Genesis. The boundaries are there in the Bible. And that land belongs to the Jewish people today, tomorrow and forever because it is their covenant by the word of God.

And then we have this pearl, which I have to say is a beaut, an absolute batshit crazy beautiful beaut, and all this time I thought Katrina was God punishing the sodomites. It leaves a fellow in such a quandary over which man of God he should believe when seeking the truth.

BILL MOYERS: According to John Hagee, devastating consequences await those who violate God's word. God, he says, may already have sent Hurricane Katrina to punish the U.S. for its role in helping Israel remove Jewish settlers from the Gaza Strip.

JOHN HAGEE, SEPTEMBER 18, 2005: I want to ask Washington a question. Is there a connection between the 9,000 Jewish refugees being forcibly removed from their homes in the Gaza Strip now living in tents and the thousands of Americans who have been expelled from their homes by this tremendous work of nature? Is there a connection there? If you've got a better answer, I'd like to hear it. More and video.

And if you dear reader have a better answer I would also like to hear it.
