Why Politics and Religion Should Not Mix

Nation reporter goes to 2007 Conservative Political Action Conference annual convention and attends the Christians United for Israel section...and you thought they were only interested in free markets.

    "Christians don't steal or lie, they don't get divorced or have abortions. If the Ten Commandments were followed by everyone we would be able to fire half the police force and in six months the prisons would be all half empty." ~ John Hagee, September 2007. Wikipedia states that Hagee said or wrote this in "The Fish Gate". There are numerous "Fish Gates" - in fact the term seems to have become something of an evangelical bandwagon - and I was unable to verify the quote, but it's a strange quote if it came from him, given that he divorced his first wife in 1975 (after founding his first church) to marry one of his congregation. Another case of "do as I say, not as I do."
    These people would be scorned as the scum they are, if only so many weren't brainless enough to blindly follow them. Their sheer numbers, coupled with the political power they've harnessed, make them far, far more dangerous than any Islamic terrorist group.

    In the video, one guy said that if someone tries to make peace in Israel, that will be the anti-christ. Sheesh. No wonder the Republican party draws their membership from the very stupid and the very manipulative. They are made for each other.
