Well guys, McCain certainly has stepped in it this time, kinda like so many people feel Obama did, not too long ago.
I won’t lie. I am downright tickled.
Seems McCain’s good buddy and staunch supporter Rev. Hagee is of the belief that the Holocaust was God’s will. He says God sent Hitler to perpetrate the Holocaust cuz the Jews weren’t moving to Israel, and the Lord was not happy about it.
According to The Huffington Post, Hagee says, “God sent a hunter. A hunter is someone with a gun and he forces you. Hitler was a Hunter. And the Bible says — Jeremiah writing — ‘They shall hunt them from every mountain and from every hill and from the holes of the rocks’, meaning there’s no place to hide”.
That’s good to know- cuz all this time I was thinking the Holocaust was nothing but a horrific tragedy, perpetrated by a psychotic madman (and his flock of sheep-followers) who hated Jewish people, non-white people, Catholics, and hell, just about everyone else too.
Guess what the Right Rev Hagee is trying to say is that there’s way more to it than that…
Our Lord had a plan.
Millions upon millions of innocent people were tortured to death, but it’s all good, cuz it brought the Jewish people back where they belong.
I was about to be offended by such horrific claims, but came across this next quote in the nick of time… Hagee says I shouldn’t take offense at all, because “I didn’t write it, Jeremiah wrote it. It was the truth and it is the truth. How did it happen? Because God allowed it to happen. Why did it happen? Because God said my top priority for the Jewish people is to get them to come back to the land of Israel.”
Ok, in that case, I won’t blame Hagee for his words… but I need to have a talk with this Jeremiah cat.
McCain, by the way, has now decided it wasn’t such a good idea to actively seek the Right Rev’s endorsement after all. He is, however, still glad to have it.
I wonder how this is gonna affect the Jewish vote… some Jewish people feel Obama’s a little too soft on all issues Israel… I gotta say, doesn’t really look like the alternative is shaping up to look so hot either.
Hagee has since apologized for his remarks and meanwhile…
I may have just become an atheist.
