I have always found the phrase "Judeo-Christian values" to be quite amusing. First of all, Christianity was born out of a repudiation of Judaism. Christ's life, at least when he was in his 30s, is generally seen through the lens of rejecting the rabbis and Jewish laws for being corrupted. Christians consider the Old Testament to be bloody and violent, so Christianity was created as a "peace-loving" answer to it. Hence, there is no "an eye for an eye", instead there is "turn the other cheek". Christianity does include the first five books of the Old Testament, but the rest of it is a general rejection of the Jewish laws that developed after the destruction of the First Temple. Don't believe me: in the 1920s and 30s, people on both sides of the hyphen would have been insulted by the suggestion that they shared the same heritage. This whole idea was invented by the Christian Zionists. I wish Hagee would be brave enough to say this, but then again, how would he make millions out of gullible idiots in America who have no self confidence and cling to any quack who promises them salvation.
