You’d never know it by the shouting about Jeremiah Wright on the right, but John McCain has more than just a Hagee problem. We reported on Rod Parsley back on March 14. Now, ABC News has reviewed some of the DVD’s of the pastor whose support John McCain sought during the Huckaboom. McCain refers to Parsley as “one of the truly great leaders in America, a moral compass, a spiritual guide.” But McCain’s staff must never have seen Parsley’s sermons on DVD or read his book Silent No More, where the preachers says things like:

“Islam is an anti-Christ religion that intends through violence to conquer the world,” Parsley says on the DVDs reviewed by ABC News.


“America was founded with the intention of seeing this false religion destroyed,” Parsley says, “and I believe Sept. 11, 2001 was a generational call to arms that we can no longer ignore.”

McCain talks about how we need to win the hearts and minds of those in the Arab world:

“The cold war was won not with a tank battle in the Fulda Gap,” McCain argues, “but by winning the hearts and minds of the people that democracy was better than Communism. And so it must be in our struggle with Islamic extremism.”

Yet, the calls to distance himself from the man whose endorsement he sought nowhere near as loud as the calls for Barack Obama to distance himself from a man whose endorsement Obama did not seek.

“If there is a McCain presidency, he will start with a serious handicap in the Arab world,” said former CIA intelligence officer John Kiriakou. “And the handicap is that it is already assumed in Muslim countries that they will not get a fair shake from a McCain administration,” said Kiriakou.

Update: McCain has offered the obligatory renoucement:

“I believe there is no place for that kind of dialogue in America, and I believe that even though he endorsed me, and I didn’t endorse him, the fact is that I repudiate such talk, and I reject his endorsement,” McCain said in a statement.

If referring to someone as a “spiritual guide” and “moral compass” isn’t an endorsement. I don’t know what is.


At a campaign appearance in Cincinnati, McCain introduced Parsley as “one of the truly great leaders in America, a moral compass, a spiritual guide.” ... roy-islam/ ... nd-wright/

Oh, it's all coming out now, isn't it! McSame figured he'd just sweep in and continue on Bush's path, carrying along with him all the assholes and shits that he's always had riding on his coattails. What the heck? Bush has gotten by with it for eight years! AND so has Cheney! :evil: :evil:

Wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall when McSame pitches one of his hissy fits? :twisted: :twisted:
