    Speaking of Hagee…

    Posted by: Chris

    Johnhagee_2 Speaking of Rev. John Hagee, who is supporting John McCain's presidential bid, the controversial San Antonio minister told the New York Times that the GOP nominee sought his endorsement despite distancing himself since:

    As a prominent evangelical pastor based in San Antonio, you were recently catapulted into national controversy when you endorsed Senator John McCain for president. Is it true that McCain actively sought your endorsement? It’s true that McCain’s campaign sought my endorsement.

    Meanwhile, Hagee (unconvincingly) distances himself from his own apocalyptic anti-gay rhetoric:

    Let’s talk about your much-quoted comment that Hurricane Katrina was God’s punishment for a gay rights parade in New Orleans. We’re not going down there. That’s so far off-base it would take us 33 pages to go through that, and it’s not worth going through.

    I am not eager to rehash it either, although I wish that evangelicals were not so hard on gays. Our church is not hard against the gay people. Our church teaches what the Bible teaches, that it is not a righteous lifestyle. But of course we must love even sinners.

    Do you have any gay friends? I don’t want to say that I have any friends, because when you say, “Who are they?” I don’t want them jumping off the balcony.

    But wouldn't they just be fulfilling God's judgment upon them in Leviticus?

      Perhaps they should revise the seven deadly sins so that gluttony is removed. That way, these people perhaps would have an easier time facing charges of hypocrisy.
