Tonight, John McCain’s rise back into the good graces of the Republican Party is predicted to enable him to bump Rudolph Giuliani out of the race for the Republican presidential nomination. But who is John McCain, really? For some insight into that, consider John McCain’s political association with right wing televangelist John Hagee.
John Hagee is one of those televangelists who said that Hurricane was a righteous heavenly punishment against New Orleans sent by God himself – and John McCain is there with him.
John Hagee says that all non-Christians deserve the punishment of eternal suffering – and John McCain is there with him.
John Hagee says that protecting the environment doesn’t matter to Christians – and John McCain is there with him.
John Hagee says that AIDS and the Internet are curses foretold by the Bible – and John McCain is there with him.
John Hagee says that the Jews are to blame for their slaughter in the Nazi holocaust, and that God willed the Nazis into existence as punishment – and John McCain is there with him.
In spite of all the outrageous things that John Hagee has said, John McCain refuses to repudiate him. Instead, John McCain literally embraces the extremism of televangelist John Hagee. That’s the real John McCain.
