I'm hoppin' mad! We are having enough problems within the evangelical community AND also outside it. A recent poll shows only 3% of non-Christian young adults between the ages of 16 and 24 think favorably about evangelicals. We are drowning in bad publicity outside of us; and drowning with terrible theology and practices within us. So now we have another blow--Ann Coulter.
Who is this anyway? I've never heard of her being in the evangelical community, but after her bombshell on Donny Deutsch's program, I'm sure we will be blamed. The really bad thing about this is the silence of major evangelical organizations like the NAE (National Association of Evangelicals). If they would have come forth IMMEDIATELY after her inane statement, which I will tell you about in a moment, we may have headed this off at the pass. But now it's too late, even if some evangelical does blast her statement. Here is what she said:
"The country would be better off if everyone were Christian."
When Deutsch -- who is Jewish -- asked if she wanted to get rid of Judaism, Coulter responded,
"We just want Jews to be perfected."
Evangelicals have worked hard for the past 25+ years in reaching out to the Jewish community as well as Israel and telling them that we don't dislike them and we don't want to see harm come to them. Coulter in 5 minutes set this back 100's of years.
I am pleading with evangelical churches and organizations/ministries to denounce this immediately------please!
