I don't doubt Perry's sincerity in his comments today but it won't hurt him for the American Christian (which excludes any World Council of Churches members) voter block who all vociferously support Israel, see her in deep danger and would see their President behave as though Israel is our closest ally. The danger for both countries is the false teaching, embraced by the TBN gang, that the Church has received the mantle of Israel and all it's associated biblical promises which confuses so-called Christians. Nevertheless, the soveriegnty of God will prevail.
