“Are U.S. Jews really worried the Christian right is trying to control the country?” That’s the thoroughly disingenuous question Bill O’Reilly proposes for his “The O’Reilly Factor” show tonight, upon which he’ll interview Reform Rabbi James Rudin, a long-time adviser on interreligious, especially Jewish-Catholic, relations, and recent author of a less optomistic book,The Baptizing of America: The Religious Right’s Plans for the Rest of Us. Now taking wagers on the number of references to Abraham Foxman, the ADL, “secular” as opposed to “faithful” Jewishness, and, of course, The Passion.
