Default Re: Values Added: Salacious Details (Allison Hoffman & Michael B. Dougherty)

She's right that it doesn't make much sense for Occupy Wall Street to be taking a stand on an issue like Israel-Palestine. But O.W.S has always been exceptionally, even explicitly, inchoate. And it was common at Iraq war protests for A.N.S.W.E.R or the Revolutionary Maoist Party to show up and advocate communism, and some Palestinian supporters in keffiyehs (if you're in Frisco, perhaps the odd Queers For Palestine) to show up.

She also mentions the suspect motivations of Christian Zionists that "at the end, you all convert". Michael just goes "yeah". But my recollection is that he's a serious Christian (albeit Catholic, ho ho), and Christian doctrine says you can only be saved by accepting Christ as your savior, salvation is for everyone and it is incumbent upon Christians to spread the faith. So shouldn't Michael similarly support the idea of massive (voluntary!) conversions to Christianity?
