  •  Give McCain a Break. (6+ / 0-)

    He only panders when he feels it's in his political or personal interest.  

    That he'd stand up to the Right Wing crazy fundagellicals, then suck-up to them;  that he'd stand up against torture, then be all for it;  that he'd take a stand against lobbyist control of Congress, then without batting an eye embrace lobbyists and the rich and powerful . . .

    Y'know, these things just show how open-minded he his.  That mark of a true "maverick".

    •  Hagee has been criticised by Reform Jews (0+ / 0-)

      so the question is if Jews who disagree with Hagee are going to Heaven.

      Hagee's theology suggests not so is Hagee antiSemitic towards some Jews at least?

      •  Hagee believes... (2+ / 0-)

        ...that Jews brought the Holocaust on themselves by their "disobedience" and by their rejection of Jesus.

        Hagee only "loves" Israel because he believes that Israel is a necessary part of what has to happen before the Second Coming. There must be 144,000 Jews that convert to Christianity and go throughout the world preaching the gospel, 12,000 from each Hebrew tribe. What happens to the rest of 'em? Turn or burn, sinner!

        Hagee and his ilk try to talk like they love Jews and Israel, and are major anti-Semites when they know they are out of earshot of any Jews. They only make nice with them because their pre-Trib apocalyptic beliefs require them to.

      ...a stupid animal that got lost from the herd.  I ask you, how hard is it to lose a herd of cattle if you're one of the fucking cattle ???
