The Judeo-Christian Debate

Evangelicals use the term "Judeo-Christian" in the context of scripture and theology. Mainstream Jews think of it as a term to decribe Western values. Some rabbinic authorities censure the use of the term altogether. What happens when the words "values", "heritage", or "faith" are tagged on to the end of the JC word? How does it change it's meaning? Is it a coincidence that "Judeo-Christian" is but a hairsbreadth away from "Judeo-Christianity". Is there such a thing as a war which pits Judeo-christian culture against Islamo-fascism, or is that just a Fundamentalist Christian invention? With growing Christian influence effecting every facet of Israeli society, are we on the brink of becoming a "Judeo-Christian state"?
