File this under "facepalm" - Christian Right leaders urge Congress to create sanctions against Iran
Every once in a while, Religious Right leaders take a break from railing against abortion and gays and czars and death panels and whatever to weigh in on foreign policy issues, like back in 2007 when a group of them released a statement demanding that the US remain in Iraq, or last year when another group demanded a meeting with Barack Obama to discuss their ideas on how to defeat terrorism.

" In a remarkable ecumenical and bipartisan display of unity, Christian leaders representing over 28 million evangelicals, Roman Catholics, and other Christians have sent a letter to Congress today and other key world leaders calling for urgent action to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. The letter urges a total arms embargo and a cut off of exports of refined petroleum products, including gasoline, as a firm yet peaceful measure against the worlds leading state sponsor of terrorism.

...

The leaders include Pat Robertson of Christian Broadcasting Network, Southern Baptist Convention chairman and pastor Johnny Hunt of First Baptist Church of Woodstock, Charles Colson of the Prison Fellowship Ministries, Richard Land of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, Tom Minnery of Focus on the Family, Bill Donohue of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, , Dr. Michael Youssef of Leading the Way, Dr. James Merritt of Cross Pointe Church, Wendy Wright of Concerned Women for America, Gary Bauer of American Values, and Dr. John Hagee of the Conerstone Church in San Antonio."

Wasn't the last guy to give arms to Iran the man-god of Conservatism and he did it illegally too?

I wonder if this letter is their way of telling their fellow conservatives (Like at Halliburton) to stop secretly giving Iran stuff in order to make a buck.

2. These fuckers are trying to FORCE a war between Iran and Israel
Fat Bastard Hagee has practically admitted it on his TV program.

Why would they do such a thing? To fulfill the prophecy of Ezekiel 38/39, which (as seen in the Left Behind books & movies) the fundagelicals believe is the kickoff of the whole rapture/tribulation/end of the world thing.
