If Weather is the Instrument of God, God Hates Straights

It’s not just a one-time thing. It’s a pattern. If the fundamentalists are right about God, then God’s will is pretty clear: God loves same-sex marriage. God hates straights.

If we are to believe the likes of fundamentalist Christian leaders John Hagee and Pat Robertson and Stephen Bennett, God sends weather in judgment of peoples [...]

If God Exists, He Celebrates Gay Marriage in Greece

Yesterday, the mayor of the Greek island of Tilos performed the nation’s first same-sex marriage in a civil town hall ceremony.

If we are to believe the likes of fundamentalist Christian leaders John Hagee and Pat Robertson, God uses weather events to punish people engaged in the sorts of marriages He doesn’t like.

That makes [...]

John McCain Incompetent If He Didn’t Know About Hagee

If John McCain knew about John Hagee’s raging antisemitism and said nothing until it became politically inconvenient, McCain is morally unsuitable for the Presidency. If John McCain sought John Hagee’s endorsement and political partnership without doing a background on Hagee, McCain lacks the basic competence necessary to be President. [...]

John McCain Deniability on John Hagee’s AntiSemitism is Implausible

The campaign of John McCain, who actively sought out the endorsement of the radical theocratic pastor John Hagee for months, is trying to spin its way out of its actions by saying that, golly, the McCain campaign had no idea that John Hagee was an anti-Semite:

A source close to McCain told ABC News the [...]

Same Sex Marriage Declared Legal in California; Hagee’s God Goes Mum

Yesterday, the California Supreme Court declared that same-sex couples have a fundamental right to marry. To the god dreamed up by John Hagee (the fundamentalist pastor whose endorsement John McCain sought for months), that’s like an 11 on the Smite Thee for Sin scale. John Hagee, you may recall, asserts that his god sends hurricanes [...]

But Hagee is A WHITE Angry Preacher, So That’s Okay

I just can’t stand it any more. I’ve got to break my jaw-clenched, steaming mad silence, this pisses me off so much.

There’s this black angry preacher who a presidential candidate did not seek the endorsement of and did not receive the endorsement of, and did not invite to join his campaign in any capacity [...]

Cartoon Video of Mohammed Blasts John McCain and John Hagee

Our cartoons of Mohammed continue to get a steady stream of traffic, years after their original production. Okay, then. I’ll go along with that. Here’s an animated cartoon of Mohammed introducing the reprehensible connection between John Hagee and John McCain. [...]

McCain Pal Hagee Doesn’t Understand. God Hates Straight People!

John Hagee. Oh, that John Hagee. Republican presidential candidate John McCain values John Hagee’s perspective on the world so very, very much that he is not only “very proud to have pastor Hagee’s support,” he not only accepted John Hagee’s endorsement, he not only gave John Hagee a big old bear hug, but he actively [...]

Televangelist Moral Values Apparently include Lying

John Hagee in this Sunday’s New York Times Magazine:

Deborah Solomon: Let’s talk about your much-quoted comment that Hurricane Katrina was God’s punishment for a gay rights parade in New Orleans.

John Hagee: 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 [...]

Confirmed: McCain Sought John Hagee Endorsement. Accountable?

A standard has been set for the presidential race:

If you have attended a church at which a particular pastor speaks, Even if you have not obtained the pastor’s endorsement, Even if you have not sought the pastor’s endorsement,

Then it is assumed your beliefs correspond to the views of the pastor.

Even if you [...]

John McCain Stands With John Hagee Religious Extremism

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. [...]
