Coulter says that Christians want Jew's to be perfected...

she said this, and the host of the show was offended. Do you think he should have been?

What's your take Dave? and do you Agree with Coultergeist?

A jew is just a Christian who doesn't believe in Jesus's forgiveness as the messiah in a round about way of saying it.

I would like all Jews to believe in Jesus and become Christians as well!!

So she expressed a not uncommon Christian view that everyone should join up - Christianity is very inclusive that way.

What she did not say is that Jews (or members of any other "faith tradition") should be exterminated, converted at gunpoint, deported, persecuted, or harassed. She just expressed that she feels everyone would be better off if they joined her in church, because she thinks hers is best and wants to share it.

Really not a big deal, except in today's overly sensitive politically correct world. I'm far from being a Bible-thumper, and resent the linking of conservatism with fundamentalist Christianity (something that Ann does a lot), but it's pretty clear to me.

I'm truly disappointed I had to miss her speech in Howell - I had tickets...

I'm not offended but I would like to see her perfected. By that I mean her head shoved up Hiltlerys ass.

On second thought they both would probably like that.

I like straight forward no nonsense people, but even coulter gets to me at times. I could not get the video to load, so I don't have an opinion on the offensive nature or lack thereof.

Messianic Jews are those who grew up and practiced Judaism, but later learned and believed that Jesus was the one they were waiting for all along. They still hold many Jewish traditions and cultural things, but embrace Jesus as the Messiah.

i have seen the interview, and was not offended
maybe if i were a Jew i would have been, but i would hope that most Jews are smart enough to realize that Ann is a stupid attention whore and and full of shit.
nothing she says can be taken seriously as she is just trying to stay in the medias line of sight at any cost

No, he shouldn't be offended. He either doen't know, or is not being honest about what the various religions believe.

Traditionally, a Christian sees themselve as a Jew who has accepted Jesus as thier savior, which she refers to as being "perfected" (not a great choice of words IMHO).

Conversly, Jews see Christians as people who follow a false profit (Jesus) and they are still waiting for thier savior. But if a Jewish leader actually said that publicly many Christians would be offended as well.

And he asked the question about what he perfect world would look like. I would expect just about anyone with strong religious beliefs to say that thier perfect world would be one in which everyone shares their religious beliefs.
