Wheaton College are hosting Stephen Sizer tomorrow night, to discuss the “lobby“. Who is this lobby?
Sizer claims “the Israeli lobby” buys every single US politician.
He has also made a ludicrous claim about the “Jewish lobby” in his first book on Christian Zionism (p.54 of PDF file):
In America the Jewish lobby realised the potential significance of wooing the political endorsement of the powerful 50-60 million Evangelical block vote through their fundamentalist leadership.
So you can imagine who “the lobby” is Sizer is talking about. Jews.
This will set the tone for a “24 Hour Middle East Leadership Briefing” at Wheaton College.
Although that sounds an important title, you should realise, these people are not Middle Eastern leaders in any way. Some might be pastors or priests in the Middle East, others are just laymen.
There is a good chance that they are also meeting to plan for the Christ at the Checkpoint 2014 conference, details of which will be released shortly.
After the embarrassment of CATC 2012, in which they welcomed and honoured PA politicians who discriminate proudly against Palestinian Christians, one wonders what to expect from CATC 2014.
At the Wheaton College event – hosted by Gary Burge – there is a particularly awful person called Mark Braverman, who seems to think that Christians should have Jews on-trial. He is on-record as saying:
“To our Christian sisters and brothers I say — do not, out of a sense of guilt for anti-Semitism, give the Jewish people a free pass.”
A “free pass”? As in, don’t not view Jews with suspicion?
More of the same, then, as we have come to expect from this crowd.
