Group Counters Christian Zionist Influence on U.S. Policy Toward Israel

There are a couple important nuggets to think about in this article.

First, CMEP (Churches for Middle East Peace) an influential ecumenical body working for an peaceful solution to the Middle East crisis asserts that Bush may be the best hope for peace. Corrine Whitlach, Exec. Director of this organization is very astute about these matters, and when it comes from her, I want to take it seriously and explore it further. However, my immediate thought is whether Bush can disengage from his Christian Right base in order to be an effective agent for peace.

Second, the Christian Zionists are at it again. Read what Charles Kimball says about John Hagee -- "If you work for peace, you may be working for the Anti-Christ." This is not the first time I've heard John Hagee say outrageous things like that. Believe it or not, that's the perspective of Christian Zionists. That's why ecumenical Christians must vehemently oppose them.
