Trump’s spiritual adviser is Robert Jeffress, a deranged evangelical Baptist minister from Dallas, Texas who has said all Jews will go to hell, Islam is “a heresy from the pit of hell” that promotes pedophilia, homosexuality is a perversion based on “detestable acts.” Trump chose him to lead a prayer service at the US embassy opening today in Jerusalem despite his public hatred for Jews. This is where you get into the irreconcilable crazy crap of Zionism. Evangelicals are among the most ardent supporters of Israel as the God-given homeland for Jews & annually parade by the thousands through Jerusalem to the Al Aqsa Mosque compound. This relationship with evangelicals is vigorously promoted by Israel. But in evangelical theology, Israel will be destroyed in the end days at the final battle of Armageddon between good & evil & Jews will go to hell because Christianity will triumph. Ecumenism is no part of evangelicalism though apparently Zionism can reconcile with even those who hate Jews.
Honestly, one would think even Netanyahu would have more dignity than to allow an antisemite like Jeffress to lead him in prayer. But then again, Zionism is a godless creed.
