John McCain said:
“Obviously, I find these remarks and others deeply offensive and indefensible,” Mr. McCain said in a statement Thursday. “I did not know of them before Reverend Hagee’s endorsement, and I feel I must reject his endorsement as well.”
It’s only fair, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
Although, I am a bit surprised seeing as Jews aren’t necessarily perceived as Americans. Not the kind of America that usually set people off like in the case when Pastor Jeremiah Wright spoke so fiercely about. The Jewish persuasion is also viewed as a group of people that fit into the ‘one drop rule’ – tainted ‘you’re not all white’.
And, in America anything or anyone that isn’t considered ‘pure white’… well, let’s just say, “You can be whipped, beaten & spoken against, ” but eventually we’ll get around to defending you – the human rights – of you.
I hope this is truly the beginning of Pastor Hagee’s downfall (or at least the dissecting under a microscope). Under the microscope of what his teachings are about – Hate – Hate – Hate – and more Hate!
His Sunday morning teachings (and midweek) would make a sound minded person question ‘Who is Your God?’ And, if that is who s/he really is — then I choose not.
