A Christian rock concert in Morocco is allowed so that the Moroccan government can curry favor with the Evangelical Christian movement in the US (Evangelicals have criticized Morocco in the past for invading the Western Sahara). Did it work? Apparently:
In fact, one of the evangelical leaders who was behind the Christian rock festival, the Rev. Rob Schenck, who leads the conservative Christian lobbying group Faith and Action in Washington, said that after what he had seen in his meetings with Moroccan officials he would now seek to get evangelicals to reassess their position on Western Sahara and the Sahwaris' political leadership, the Polisario Front. "Evangelical Christians have to be extremely cautious about supporting any group that would sympathize with a socialist or Communist philosophy or world view, which is completely in conflict with an evangelical or Christian worldview," Mr. Schenck said in an interview. He said Moroccan officials had told the evangelical leaders that the Polisario had received Cuban training and aid.
So all those "feed-the-poor" socialists are completely in conflict with Jesus's teachings?
