I wonder if the initial brain-washing is done by Evangelical Christianity: You have to learn to accept mutually contradictory things, which may be outside any real-world experiences, with absolutely zero evidence.

Once you have that down, there are all sorts of magical things you can believe.

I suspect that is also true of the Jews for Jesus community, of which he is a part.
Never mind that most Jews will adamantly insist he is not actually Jewish but he says that he is.
He looks, acts, talks and thinks like a RW fundie evengelical dominionist, except for the Jewish clothing accessories.

Now that Trump has decided that its only right that religions preach politics from the pulpit you can count on a lot of very strange coming from the religious communities. Praise be!!!
