Christians against Iran, urging bombing of Iran


Bill Moyers Journal 9:00 PM Friday 5 October - PBS

"Fundamentalist Christians typically believe that the Bible is the Word of God, internally consistent, and free of error. Today, fundamentalists are the most vocal group in opposition to abortion access, laws making homosexuals a "protected category," physician-assisted suicide, the use of embryonic stem cells for medical research, comprehensive sex-ed classes in public schools, etc."

Christians against Iran, urging bombing of Iran

Bill Moyers sits down with Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun, a Jewish journal of politics, culture, and spirituality, and Dr. Timothy P. Weber, an evangelical Christian, historian, and the author of ON THE ROAD TO ARMAGEDDON: HOW EVANGELICALS BECAME ISRAEL'S BEST FRIEND, who discuss the growing Christian Zionist movement in America, from different religious perspectives.

"In previous attempts to understand Bible prophecy, Iran did not show up on anybody's radar screen. As history takes these unexpected turns, the Bible teachers, the preachers, the dispensational theologians, they adjust the scenario to fit. In short, dispensationalists know how to change the subject, when it's necessary." -Dr. Timothy P. Weber

"It is possible to create a different understanding of the Islamic world, one that doesn't put them all together in one evil category, just as it's possible to understand that there are evangelicals who are very hurtful in their world view, and there are evangelicals who are very loving in their world view." -Rabbi Michael Lerner
