Seeing how we are (or soon will be) moving on to general election concerns related to the Presidential race, I thought this might be appropriate.

I’m not really thinking the GOP wants to go hog wild playing the pastor card. Unless of course, it’s not about what the pastor says, but about the color of his skin. You feel me?

Looks like McCain is already trying to muzzle Hagee though:

Hagee threw his public backing behind McCain in late February, joining the senator at a press conference in San Antonio, where he promised his “vigorous, enthusiastic and personal support” of McCain’s campaign. But since then, Hagee and McCain haven’t been seen together. The pastor has tried to limit potential damage. After McCain visited New Orleans, for instance, Hagee backed off his remarks about divine retribution there, releasing a statement that “ultimately neither I nor anyone else can know the mind of God concerning Hurricane Katrina. I should not have suggested otherwise.” Hagee won’t answer questions about McCain or his campaign. “It’s better that I don’t,” he said on a recent conference call with reporters. That’s one view McCain probably does agree with.

    Mohammedism is a religion predicated on violence. It is a religion worthy of scorn and ridicule.

    As for Parsley and Hagee- I rarely discuss religious matters online, but I have a strong background in it from my Catholic education. I think comments from annoying liturgists about divine retribution are nutty, but Hagee’s views about the Catholic Church are at the heart of Protestantism. I believe such opinions about the Catholic Church, are quite wrong. However, Catholics belong to the only denomination which has a historical and Biblical claim to be the one true church founded by St. Peter himself- Therefore, if one is to deny the holy nature and trueness of the Catholic Church, then it must be considered demonic.

    There certainly are brands of protestantism which don’t take the tenets of the reformation seriously (Whatever churches Gov. Strickland and Al Sharpton supposedly gave sermons to come to mind.) But I’d rather have people stick to their religious principles and debate them vigorously, rather than dilute their faith into some politically-correct oatmeal mush. And that also goes for Rev. Wright, who preaches a Marxist version of Christianity.

    Tocqueville noted that America’s religious plurality is one of our country’s great strengths. I concur.

    But if the best your political side can do is match up conservative Protestantism against Liberation Theology, then your side will lose.
