John Hagee should learn to keep his trap shut.
The Pastor and John McCain supporter continues to publicly blame Hurricane Katrina on the gays. There was to be “massive homosexual rally there” on the Monday following the storm. God punished that sinful rally by taking out the town all Biblical style, says Hagee.
Hagee maintained that position yesterday while chatting with Texas-based radio host Dennis Prager:
PRAGER: Right, but in the case, did NPR get, is this quote correct though that in the case of New Orleans you do feel it was sin?
HAGEE: In the case of New Orleans, their plan to have that homosexual rally was sin. But it never happened. The rally never happened.
PRAGER: No, I understand.
HAGEE: It was scheduled that Monday.
PRAGER: No, Iâ€™m only trying to understand that in the case of New Orleans, you do feel that Godâ€™s hand was in it because of a sinful city?
HAGEE: That it was a city that was planning a sinful conduct, yes.
John McCain fought long and hard for Hagee’s endorsement. In fact, the Republican presidential nominee apparently “sought out” Hagee’s help in winning the White House. What does that say about McCain’s judgment? Nothing good.
Meanwhile, McCain couldn’t remember this weekend whether or not he appreciated Hagee’s controversial help. Talking to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos The candidate first described it as a mistake and then said he was happy to have it. Queer.
