What’s Next

The past two weeks have been unusually busy. I am trying to get everyone’s comments up as fast as possible and to respond to all your emails. I especially appreciate the flood of messages from active duty servicemembers who are appalled by the chickenhawks depicted in my latest video. The response to “Generation Chickenhawk” has been overwhelming so please accept my apology for not blogging.

(I haven’t even had time to respond to the perpetually petulant Joe Carter’s screed about my report on all the Christian right hacks lining up to join Fred Thompson’s campaign. For now I will simply say that I hope Thompson declares. He is a fresh breath of halitosis. And I hope Carter gets the contract he is transparently seeking and becomes Thompson’s blogger. That might resolve the conflict of interest he currently faces as the 501 c-3 Family Research Council’s lead blogger.)

I have been in the studio (actually a bedroom in Queens) for the past four days with my right-hand man Thomas Shomaker, editing our next video. It is a tour of the Christians United for Israel’s annual Washington Israel Summit. This one will certainly be more controversial and possibly more shocking than “Generation Chickenhawk.” If you thought Tom DeLay’s attempt to link abortion to illegal immigration at the College Republican National Convention was unsane, wait until you see my interview with him at CUFI’s summit. For now I can only report that he has some interesting views on the Rapture. Joe Lieberman plays a supporting role.

I am hoping to release this video on Wednesday at the Huffington Post, so stay tuned. If the scheduled release date changes, I will update here.

    Keep doin’ yo’ thang, Max, keep doin’ yo’ thang. Can’t wait to see the new video Wednesday. It sounds like this one is going to be a pretty touchy topic since the subject is about the Christian Right and its alliance with AIPAC. Nothings too safe for you, is it? lol. You’re really going to rile-up far-right Christian extremists with this little ditty you’re putting together, so brace yourself, brah.

    By the way, Keith named Tom Delay the Worst Person In The World a few days ago because of your video. Though he should’ve gave you a shout-out and said your name rather than “reported by an independent journalist.” He should’ve at least played the video on his show and invited you on to interview you. But I have nothing but love for Keith, so I can forgive him for that slight error on his behalf.

    Can’t wait to see it Max. My favorite political topic has always been the Christian Right so I’m really looking forward to seeing this video.

    Have you ever considered going to a church service at one of those gigantic Evangelical “churches”? Sort of like the one featured in the movie Jesus Camp (great movie I hope you saw it Max).

    I think you’d be able to really nail some humor with those people.

    Since Max seems to have a penchant for “exposing”
    religious “extremists”; in the interest of equal time
    and fair reporting, perhaps he’ll do an expos’e for us
    on the whacky beliefs of Hasidic Jews, who won’t
    shake hands with women because they believe they’re
    “dirty and unclean”, and particularly vile and useless
    while on their menstrual cycle. Speaking of “vile,”
    how about a movie on the Israeli-born televangelist
    Benny Hinn? Born-again “Christian,” who travels to poor,
    third world countries “healing” ailments, (so long as
    they’re not visible)-if you have a visible ailment ie.,
    amputation, etc., then you will be “healed” in “two
    days, or two weeks..’whatever God wants’”-so long
    as you give all of your money to God..and Benny.
    Maybe Max can make his new “Christian Right” movie
    under the same guise of journalistic integrity used filming “ChickenHawk?” He could
    infiltrate a church picnic by claiming to be a youth
    pastor from out of town. Ask theology questions to some kids,
    then when they don’t know the answers, he can claim to
    have uncovered hypocrisy!

    Actually Lizard, Benny Hinn may have been born in Israel, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he was Jewish. Hinn was raised in the Eastern Orthodox Church as a child and then simply branched off into Evangelicalism when he was “born-again”. Therefore, Benny Hinn would not fall under this category of Jewish people your feel Max should be criticizing. He would however, fall under the category of insane, dishonest, and greedy televangelists (such as the recently deceased Tammy Faye) who enjoy stealing the money of gullible people who believe that their money is going towards missionaries and programs for the poor.

    Televangelists are precisely the reason that this country needs a fair-tax and that the government does in fact know the best places to put the money. Otherwise if we had 1/3 of the country giving their money to these lunatic’s poor people would be dying left and right.

    Matt,
    Sometimes it’s tough to sort out the televangelists.
    (If I may use the term “televangelists” to include
    the fund-raising groups as well as the prosperity/
    healing groups.)
    Feed the Children is highly effective. Larry
    Jones does a pretty good job keeping things efficient
    and really did as good a job, perhaps better, than
    most others after Katrina. The poor were cared for.
    Other less-visible groups like Mennonite Central
    Committee (MCC) and Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago
    are also efficient with contributions and meet real
    needs. (They’re also filled with evangelicals and
    fundamentalists.)

    Collin,
    Sorry, but I happen to be with Matt on this one.
    I don’t think there is a big gray-area here between,
    basically, non-profits and charlatans.
    Perform one “miracle” on stage with cameras rolling,
    and if it can’t be 100% proven then you lose your
    duty free card. Personally, I think there is a
    special place in hell waiting for Benny Hinn and his
    ilk, that no death-bed repentance is going to cure.
    I realize these people are the exceptions to good order,
    however, these “exceptions” manage to raise billions
    of unaccountable,tax-free shekels. Transparency
    and accountability guidelines are imperative here.

  8. Preston Powell

    Oh my God, did I actually read a post where I agreed with Lizard?! I’ll be damned; the end is near fo’ sho’!

    You should also add folks such as Creflo Dollar, Robert Tilton, Rod Parsley and Bishop Eddie Long to the list of crooks who swindles the poor to “sow a seed of faith” into their ministry, as if by doing so God will grant thee wishes like Aladdin’s magic genie after rubbing a shiny, golden lamp. I have no respect for false prophets and crooked ministries that manipulates the gullible—and usually the poor—for their money. Disgusting.

    Max
    We’re waiting for the CUFI upload, sounds too good to pass up. When is it being posted?

    Surely what a man does when he is taken off his guard is the best evidence for what sort of a man he is? Surely what pops out before the man has time to put on a disguise is the truth? If there are rats in a cellar you are most likely to see them if you go in very suddenly. But the suddenness does not create the rats: it only prevents them from hiding. In the same way the suddenness of the provocation does not make me an ill-tempered man; it only shows me what an ill-tempered man I am. The rats are always there in the cellar, but if you go in shouting and noisily they will have taken cover before you switch on the light.
    -C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
