BILL MOYERS: Over 4,500 people from every state in the union and ten countries ...celebrate their solidarity with Israel...They call their organization Christians United for Israel...Most are evangelical Christians...CUFI — as it's known — is not even two years old, and it's already a force to be reckoned with. The man behind it is pastor John Hagee.


Bill Moyers program from March 7, 2008. Transcript at: www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/

Quote:
PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: John McCain will be a strong courageous and effective leader from the first day...


Maybe this should be in the Republican candidates forum.

Wherever it is, it is an eye opener.

This is the really scary subsection of the already scary Fundie Radical Right. Their reasons for supporting Israel concern their belief that the battles of the Apocalypse or Armageddon are predicated on a strong Israel. They want the Second Coming so badly, they will do anything to beat the drums of war in the Middle East. "100 years or a 1000 years of war" McSame is like wet dream come to life for these guys.

Many years ago there was a radio program that started, "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men". I always think of that when I hear about people like this.

Pure evil.

They want the Second Coming


I'd like to know how they're going to get a "second coming" of a man who has been dead at least 2,000 years, if he existed at all!

What utter nonsense. The horror of it is how many fools actually believe the crap...and will act to make sure it "happens," even when they have to fake the whole damned thing by convincing the gullible that they're speaking the truth. :evil:

Hagee...he's another Jim Baker, only much, much worse.

Well Israel is now very, very strong. Rest assured of that.

The Likuds running our government seen to that.

Hagee may feel "the love" for Johnny but does Johnny's camp feel the same about Hagee and his ilk?

Maybe not:

MCCAIN ADVISER: CHRISTIAN RIGHT A "SERIOUS PROBLEM"...
Quote:
...
Yet Eagleburger bluntly contradicted McCain on at least one major issue of concern to the Republican Party: the role of the religious right. McCain has spent two years making nice with the likes of Jerry Falwell and John Hagee, repenting for referring to Falwell and Pat Robertson as "agents of intolerance" back in 2000. Yet Eagleburger seemed to suggest that we shouldn't take McCain's embrace of the religious right too seriously.

"On the Christian hard right, I live in Charlottesville now and I can't tell you I'm surrounded by it," Eagleburger said. "I must tell you we fought it there, fought hard against it. There's no question that in the Republican Party it is a serious problem...Among the hard-right conservatives in the Republican Party John McCain was, shall we say, less than enthusiastically received...What you see is what you get. You are not going to see him moving to assuage the concerns of these conservatives.

"The issues that have concerned the far right I don't see and I don't expect to see any changes. I know there will be some people in his entourage who will want to advocate for those changes, and again, I don't believe he will shift on those fundamental issues. For example, on abortion, he's clear, he's opposed. On one of the issues that upsets the far right, stem cell research, he is prepared to accept some of that, and that's something that upsets the far right. I could go on with these issues." Too bad he didn't.

Paging Pastor Hagee!
