I just heard on CNN that McCain has repudiated Hagee's endorsement as a result of the comments he has made. McCain went out of his way to make it clear Hagee is not his personal pastor, and he has not been attending Hagee's church for the past 20 years.

Now that is damage control. Do you think Rove told him to say it?

GEE... what took him so long?

With such a lag time it must mean he implicitly agrees with Hagee but is just distancing him for political conviennice.

See how two can play the same bull hooey game?

At least it only took a few weeks ... not 20 years like Obama.

Agreed. Both McCain and Obama distanced themselves from the ministers for political reasons. Both wanted the endorsements in order to get votes, but then the ministers were too 'hot' to handle.

The TV News said that McCain has officially REJECTED Hagees endorsement now. Well .... good. But ... I'm still not happy that he accepted it to begin with.

It occurs to me that McCain's repudiation of Hagee may be more directed toward appeasing the Catholic vote than it is aimed at retaining Jewish voters. The statistics I saw today showed the Jewish vote as a much smaller percentage, and generally Democratic. There are many more Catholics (24%) than Jews (1%) in this country. With the Catholic stance on birth control and abortion being what it is, I think many of them would vote conservative.

Hagee is known as a friend of Israel and has often stated his belief that the Catholic Church is the Whore of Babylon, something he apologized for last week. I get the impression that story has more to do with McCain's action today than this one does. Can't have it look like he is caving in to pressure from Catholics, though, can he?

That is part of the problem with the elections . . .

Seriously, people just need to say what they believe. That is what we the people deserve.

Hillary takes OJ as running mate. Then the circle will be complete. Man are we screwed.

It is.

The Catholic vote might be the only hope McCain has if it come to a race with Obama. All McCain has to do is hammer Obama on the issue of partial-birth abortion and on his no vote on the Born Alive Protection Act which Clinton actually voted for and NARAL went nuetral on. Catholics will forget about the Hagee deal and forgive McCain because of the repudiation.

Bamo, millions of Catholic votes and it might work for the Hagee guys too.

But I don't think McCain knows about the many liberal Catholics like Kerry and the Kennedys.

MikeboydUS is quite right.
Hagee is a mouth-piece for the highest and most orthodox Talmudists. His vocal support of the murder of Palestinians proves that he is more a Zionist than a Christian.

Hagee and the Chabad Rebbe are not alone in calling Hitler "An instrument of God."

According to many Orthodox Talmudists, the "Haskalah" were an abomination for breaking away from the totalitarian orthodox religion.

The country that was at the centre of this movement was Germany.

It was predicted that these "maskilim" would face the brunt of God's wrath. Contemporary Israeli Rabbinic scholars believe that this "wrath" was personified in Adolf Hitler.

The Chief Rabbi of Shas, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef:

ISRAEL'S leading political rabbi was condemned by millions of people yesterday after claiming that the victims of the Holocaust were reincarnated Jewish sinners who had to die to atone for their misdeeds.

Rabbi Eliezer Menachem Schach made comments of a similar nature.

Hagee is not as crazed as many would like to think, he is merely parroting the beliefs of his masters.
