Conservatives Against McCain - Part I

28 February 2008

Catholic League president Bill Donohue has this to say about John McCain's ties to John Hagee:

Just to flesh things out a bit, and to highlight Hagee's insanity, here are a few more of his quotes:

  • As millions of people anticipate the release of the latest Harry Potter book and film, we're reminded once again of Satan's ongoing attempt to deceive and destroy. The whole purpose of the Potter books is to desensitize readers and introduce them to the occult.
  • "Islam in general -- those who live by the Koran have a scriptural mandate to kill Christians and Jews."
  • "I believe that New Orleans had a level of sin that was offensive to God, and they were recipients of the judgment of God for that."
McCain also embraced Jery Falwell, who famously blamed 9/11 on the sins of Americans (particularly the ACLU).

UPDATE: Glenn Greenwald interviews Bill Donohue here.

UPDATE II: Here is McCain accepting the Hagee endorsement.
