    Good work on making preachers an issue for the campaign! Reverend Hagee's comments finally surfaced, about he thought Hitler was doing "God's Work" in oppressing the jews. McCain had to finally ditch the good reverend. Probably doing significant harm to his ties and support with the religious rightwing.

    McCain's "spiritual advisor" Ted Parsley, is surfacing in the news. He thinks America's mission is to destroy islam, and want a holy war. What a nut bag.

    So? What's your point? Your lame attempt to spin this is just that -- lame. Hagee controls a powerful bloc of voters, McCain wanted those votes. Hagee says something beyond stupid and McCain says fuck this.

    Sound like integrity to me. Unlike his counterpart who did it to his personal pastor of 20 years for political experdience.

    But don't feel too bad. That sock puppet Alan Colmes agrees with you.:rolleyes:

    WEll lets explain it.

    Obama went to his pastor's church for 20 years. You dont keep going if you disagree with the pastor, and your pastor doesnt just preach on topics once.

    Hagee is not McCain's pastor. I'm sure they have met and he may have sat through a service or two, but no where near the entrenchment of Obama and the Trinity church.

    Lets not make this about McCain, because it isnt. This is the Obama-friendly media trying to smear McCain because everyone else got Obama good. It wont work. americans are not so stupid as to believe this garbage.

    Lets move on. McCain will have no problem in this situation,.

    Except the BLT preaching was a minor part of Wright's overall career, whereas Hagee built his empire on significant amounts of anti-semitism and hatred.

    Also, McCain spent more than a year courting Hagee, an effort that began long after Hagee's hatred of jews and Catholics was public knowledge.

    A minor part of his teachings.....:eusa_whistle:

    Cone is the mentor of Obama's mentor, Wright. Wright adopted Cone's "black liberation theology" as his church's core doctrine. According to Cone, the reverend "is really the one who took it from my books and brought it to the church."
    Cone's books are required reading at Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ, where Obama has worshiped for the past 20 years. Trinity instituted the theology and its attendant "black value system" a full decade before Obama formally pledged membership in 1991.

    MCcain being endorsed by a Hagee doesn't in fact mean that he subscribed to everything Hagee has said in the past.

    That's true. And Obama's church attendance doesn't mean he subscribed to everything Wright has said in the past. If you people would leave the Wright matter alone, I'd leave Hagee alone. Both are character assassination, but if you persist in opening that door, I'm going to respond in kind.

    Unless McCain tries another snide claim that Hamas backs Obama. McCain sought Hagee's support; Obama never sought Hamas support.

    Fucking retard. Context is your friend. 20 YEARS as a CLOSE personal friend, almost member of the family, spiritual advisor, the man that supposedly turned him on to Christianity, 20 YEARS. Yup same as a politically expediant endorsement for an election.

    I hope you do not make these factual lapses in Court, your opponents will tear you to pieces. Well unless your just used to plea bargains with Court appointed Losers, err Lawyers.
