Slash-and-burn columnist Ann Coulter shocked a cable TV talk-show audience Monday when she declared that Jews need to be "perfected" by becoming Christians, and that America would be better off if everyone were Christian.
Coulter made the remarkable statements during an often heated appearance to promote her new book on advertising guru Danny Deutsch's CNBC show "The Big Idea."
In response to a question from Deutsch asking Coulter if "it would be better if we were all Christian," the controversial columnist responded: "Yes."
"We should all be Christian?" Deutsch repeated.
"Yes," Coulter responded, asking Deutsch, who is Jewish, if he would like to "come to church with me."
Deutsch, pressing Coulter further, asked, "We should just throw Judaism away and we should all be Christians?" She responded: "Yeah."
Coulter deflected Deutsch's assertion that her comments were anti-Semitic, matter-of-factly telling the show's obviously upset host, "That is what Christians consider themselves: perfected Jews."

So stating Christian doctrine is now shocking? That says more about our society than it does about Ann.
That headline is an outright lie, and someone at Fox owes Ann an apology.
Is she dating Andrew Stein to save him?
I do not disagree with her, but she could have been a little more circumspect...........
Deutsch's response to Coulter's statements clearly indicates he doesn't know all that many Christians ~ if any.
I know a Jews for Jesus fellow (former rabbi in fact) who could have this Deutsch guy jumping and hollering in about 10 seconds.
‘Jews Need to be Perfected by Becoming Christians’
the words are in quotes, meaning that she said the words. This is not true. She agreed with an equivalent statement, but didn’t say those words.
No matter. She has opened herself to criticism and will have to take the consequences of her words. It’s getting harder and harder to justify her rantings.
As a Jew, who has come to know the King of the Jews, I say she’s exactly right.
She’s right. If it upsets you, take it up with Jesus Christ. He said it first.
If you don’t BELIEVE in Jesus Christ, than you should not be upset at what one of his followers says you need to do, as it is of no consequence.
But if the Bible is correct, and Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died for our sins, the message is clear — Accept Jesus Christ.
Only God decides who gets into heaven, don’t get me wrong. And I’m only repeating what I believe God said through his word, and you can certainly ignore that as well.
But it would be absurd, and a moral crime, for a Christian to NOT tell an unbeliever about the need for Christ when asked.
And yes, if we were all true Christians, the world WOULD be a much better place. There would still be sin in the world, but everybody would be striving to do good.
Of course, everybody wouldn’t be Christian. It is destined that many will reject the message.
People sure do get upset though when people who have firm beliefs assert the obvious meaning of those beliefs.
But then, since she has advocated invading the entire Moslem world and forcing them to convert, why should her opinions on Jews be any different?
She reminds me of a political version of Brittany Spears. A train wreck happening whenever she opens her mouth.
You're going to have to justify yourself theologically in terming what she said a "rant", and I don't think you can do it.
She’s on a roll..
So the question is, is the criticism of her for saying what seems to be an obvious statement for a Christian to make,
really driven by people upset about what she said about Fred Thompson?
Is Ann Coulter going to be thrown under the bus to keep up the illusion?
“and will have to take the consequences of her words. Its getting harder and harder to justify her rantings.”
What should she have said?
The Messiah has always been sought by Jews. They just need to realize he has already arrived..
Many people, Christians and Jews alike, do not realize that you can be BOTH a CHRISTIAN AND A JEW!..........Becoming Christian does not make you not Jewish anymore! You still fulfill all the Jewish traditions and religious rites and are completely free to do whatever your requirements are..............
Coulter is going to catch Hell for saying so, but her statements are pretty basic stuff.
What did she say that was bad?..............
I stated on another thread that few of us warned freepers that Anne Coulter is an attention ***** and she really does go over the top on many issues. This idiotic remark by her, even if it is a joke, is stupid beyond belief, and smart conservatives should not come to her defense. Let her be marginalized, the Republicans and Conservatives do not need her stupid over the top rhetoric during the next 12 months of the Presidential elections campaign.
I am neither Christian or Jew and I see nothing wrong with Ann’s statement. She is merely stating what she believes to be true. I will say this much: If jews would stop voting left, and I can’t understand why they do, they would be a lot better off. The Democrats do NOT have the jews best interest at heart(or any interest except for getting their vote).
