The ‘Protestant Work Ethic’s’ Dark Side

 tweets – “Die Schweiz verdankt ihren Reichtum unter anderem der calvinistisch geprägten Arbeitsmoral. Doch diese hat auch Schattenseiten.” Interessant, dass es in der gedruckten Ausgabe “zwinglianisch-calvinistisch” heisst.

And directs us to this essay. Interesting reading indeed.

Righteous Gentiles: Religion, Identity, and Myth in John Hagee’s Christians United for Israel

In Righteous Gentiles: Religion, Identity, and Myth in John Hagee’s Christians United for Israel, Sean Durbin offers a critical analysis of America’s largest Pro-Israel organization, Christians United for Israel, along with its critics and collaborators. Although many observers focus Christian Zionism’s influence on American foreign policy, or whether or not Christian Zionism is ‘truly’ religious, Righteous Gentiles takes a different approach. 

Through his creative and critical analysis of Christian Zionists’ rhetoric and mythmaking strategies, Durbin demonstrates how they represent their identities and political activities as authentically religious. At the same time, Durbin examines the role that Jews and the state of Israel have as vehicles or empty signifiers through which Christian Zionist truth claims are represented as manifestly real.

Sounds fun, doesn’t it.
