The disturbing reason why evangelical Christians want Jerusalem to be Israel's capital

Some evangelical Christians believe that recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will bring on the end of the world.

On Wednesday President Donald Trump announced that the US will recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and the US embassy - which is currently based in Tel Aviv - will move there.

When the UN partitioned Palestine in 1947 the city of Jerusalem was given a special status, distinct from either a state of Palestine or a state of Israel, to be administered by an international council of the UN.

The US and many other nations currently have their embassies in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.

Jerusalem came under the control of Israel in 1967, yet Israeli sovereignty has never been truly recognised internationally.

In April 2017 Russia's Foreign Ministry released a statement saying it considered western Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel - and eastern Jerusalem the capital of a ('future') Palestine, yet Russia's embassy to Israel is also located in Tel Aviv.

Or course we all already know this - but stark none the less

1. What if we get nuked by North Korea first? Won't that ruin the whole plan,

since the End Times are supposed to start with war in the middle east?

4. Creepy Pence's fans are all into this

Netanyahu and his buddies don't care that the religious right 'Crazy American Fundies" also say this involves the destruction of Israel and/or the conversion of Jews to Christianity.

I actually can't think of a metaphor that will be an example. It's like the idiots meet the total cynics.

5. My son is not going to die in the Middle East

Over where they put a fucking embassy. I will pay his way to a safe country rather than let him get drafted over Israel and religious cult's wet dream.

7. Today I listened to a whole discussion on NPR about Trump's decision, and I kept

yelling at the panel "tell them WHY he's doing this! Tell them about the nutty Christians for whom this decision brings the end times! The end of the world, and they're rooting for it!!! They're all fucking crazy, figure it out!!"

Nope. No one mentioned batshit religion as the reason for this.

8. The Dominionists

Have always wanted the end of the world and they've the money and volition to try and bring it about and force Jesus to come back. The fact we permit them to drag us down that road without keel hauling them has always mystified me.
