A number of thoughts go through my mind at reading this article…number one, how do those who refuse to believe Israeli Jews need to be missionized wrap their strange theology around this article. And secondly, this quote,
(Finance Minister Yair) Lapid said he came to the parade to talk about “the rights of gay people to marry and adopt children,” adding that he was proud of the Israeli gay community and that the community should take pride in itself.
when compared to the fact that on the other hand in “every aspect of Israeli society, whether in terms of of educational provision, access to medical care, employment rights, or treatment under the judicial system, Israeli Arabs suffer systematic and institutional discrimination and racism” So much so that “on Israeli birth certificates for Jewish children citizenship is given as Israeli”, but in the case of Arab babies born in Israel “this category is purposefully left blank”. (Christian Zionism; Road-map to Armageddon – page 210)
How twisted is this folks? Members of the Israeli government will fight for the rights of gay people but…..
How do the Hal Lindsy’s and John Hagee’s of this world (and other die-hard Christian Zionist) explain this duality in light of their theology? How can they?
As usual, I’m left with no answers…
