Just Words? (part 2)

Just Words continued....

Will John McCain disavow an endorsement from a "bigot"?

"Yesterday, hard-line conservative Pastor John Hagee, founder of Christians United for Israel, endorsed John McCain. Hagee said that McCain “is a man of principle, [who] does not stand boldly on both sides of any issue.” McCain, who had been courting the endorsement for over a year, said that he was “very honored by Pastor John Hagee’s endorsement.”...[more]

Robert Byrd will endorse? Bigots are bigots.

of course. A bigot is a bigot regardless of what side of the coin he cares to show. Now McCain needs to reject Hagee's endorsement just as much BHO had to do with Farrakhan. But, since there is no GOP candidate to call him out on it like Hillary did to Barak I doubt McCain will come through. 'Gies....I really cannot voice support for any of the Prez. candidates this year. None of their philosophies or theologies match mine. What's a man to do?

FYI...

  • John Hagee: You will either offend the world and please God, or please the world and offend God. -
  • John Hagee: Jesus did not come to the earth to start 285 squabbling denominations fighting over the Bible. How like the devil to divide Christians over the Bible.
  • John Hagee: If you live your life and don't confess your sins to God Almighty through the authority of Christ and His blood, I'm going to say this very plainly, you're going straight to hell with a nonstop ticket.
  • John Hagee: What is the point of having free speech if you have nothing to say? __________________________________________

The "bigot" comment came from conservative William Donohue, president of the Catholic League. Not me.

From Glenn Greenwald:

"McCain said he was "very honored" to receive this endorsement and, when asked about some of Hagee's more twisted views, responded: "all I can tell you is that I am very proud to have Pastor John Hagee's support."

McCain's sainted supporter, Joe Lieberman, last year spoke to Hagee's group and lavished him with such obsequious praise that Lieberman actually compared Hagee, favorably, to Moses. Why is Louis Farrakhan deemed by our political establishment to be so radioactive as to not be fit for good company -- black candidates are required to repudiate his support even when they haven't sought it and denounce his views even when they've never advocated anything close to those views -- but John Hagee is a perfectly acceptable figure whom mainstream GOP politicians are free to court without any consequences or media objections?
