John Hagee Endorses McCain and William Donohue is Outraged

Don't you just love it when bigots collide? On Wednesday, Pastor John Hagee of San Antonio's huge Cornerstone Church (and a daily staple on the Trinity Broadcasting Network) endorsed John McCain, and William Donohue, President of the Catholic League, is beside himself. Hagee has a long history of anti-Catholic remarks, like calling the Catholic Church "The Great Whore," an "apostate church," and "The anti-Christ."

Problem is, Donohue himself has a history of anti-Semitism. I'll never forget watching him on MSNBC in December, 2004, complaining that Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" wasn't going to get any Oscar recognition because "Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular....Hollywood likes anal sex."

Wow, can these two ever be reconciled? Yes, as a matter of fact, I think they can. Hagee has had a penchant over the years for injecting references to The Illuminati/Jewish Bankers Conspiracy into his sermons. I've seen him do it. In fact, the very first item I ever posted on this blog back on September 9, 2005, was shortly after watching Hagee on TBN explaining how the Seder is really a Christian ritual (although the Jews apparently don't know it) celebrating the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. (Pastor Hagee has always denied any charges of anti-Semitism because he is such a big supporter of Israel.)

I do really think these two should get together and resolve their differences. They seem to have a lot in common and could become good friends.
