In the last debate between Senators Clinton and Obama, Timmeh Russert asked Senator Obama very carefully if he accepted the endorsement of Louis Farrakhan, and Obama made it clear that he did not.
Now comes the crazy, rightwing bigot John Hagee, who passes himself off as a pastor. A pastor!
He's a bona fide asshole and idiot who somehow has found a home in the heart and minds of the Christian right. Here are some of his crazed rantings that presidential candidate John Sidney McCain, III, is so pleased to have on his side:
"All Muslims are programmed to kill and we can thus never negotiate with any of them. From an NPR interview Hagee gave to Terry Gross in 2006.
JH: All hurricanes are acts of God, because God controls the heavens. I believe that New Orleans had a level of sin that was offensive to God, and they were recipients of the judgment of God for that. "
...a confrontation with Iran is a necessary precondition for Armageddon (which will mean the death of most Jews, in his eyes) and the Second Coming of Christ."
And Hagee's opinion of the Catholic Church:
'The Great Whore,' an 'apostate church,' the 'anti-Christ,' and a 'false cult system' . . . "
And the Jewish Religion:
"Jews had been responsible for their persecution throughout history because of a failure to properly accept God."
Harry Potter books:
"The whole purpose of the Potter books is to desensitize readers and introduce them to the occult."
The conservatives have no problem with the demented rantings of a seriously deranged lunatic.
I wonder if Timmeh will ask John Sidney McCain, III, about this most illustrious endorsement that he has received from the raving maniac, Hagee.
He has defamed two of America's religious institutions. Why has no one come out and asked John Sidney McCain, III, how he in good conscience can accept the endorsement of a Catholic and Jew hater.
