I love it how he makes a stereotype. Just immediately assumes that "All my Christians friends will be for a preemptive strike on Iran". Gotta love this stuff.

Do you know many that wouldn't be?

Sorry, I should clarify. What I mean is, can you think of many among the prominent conservative evangelicals that Brian is obviously referring to that wouldn't support a preemptive strike on Iran? Can you really see a James Dobson, Chuck Colson, Pat Robertson, James Kennedy or Richard Land speaking out against another preemptive war? (especially considering their past track record?

You misrepresent what Brian said if you think he is painting with a broad brush here. Contrary to your paraphrase, he did not say "All my Christian friends". The exact quote from his article was "many of my fellow Christians". (He then goes on to talk about the response of those Christians who would not be for a preemptive strike.) That's quite a bit different than "all".
