Pastor John Hagee was feeling the Christian love this past Sunday.
They’re saying that the 10 Commandments have been taken out of the courtrooms and out of the schoolhouses lest we offend the atheists. Let me be very clear. This country was not built for atheists nor by atheists. It was built by Christian people who believed in the word of God.
To the atheists watching this telecast: If our belief in God offends you, move! There are planes leaving every hour on the hour going every place on planet Earth. Get on one! We don’t want you, and we won’t miss you, I promise you. Our coins say “In God We Trust.” President Obama recently has told the foreign media that America is not a Christian nation. You’re absolutely wrong. We were, we are, and always shall be a Bible reading, praying, Christian people.
Several years ago, witchcraft and Satanism were official approved by the U.S. military at the direction of the U.S. Congress. We have officially chosen to recognize another god. I call upon the members of Congress to outlaw the practice of witchcraft and Satanism in the U.S. military lest we offend the god of heaven. I don’t care about the atheist.
Isn’t that pleasant? Is everyone else just basking in the warm glow of that sermon?
Mr. Hagee, I am glad you can spit such venomous hate from your pulpit. I’m glad that just because you think the fever dream of a book that is your Bible is true to the letter, you think that you somehow have dominion over the United States. I don’t think it gets that specific, but I am sure it must feel super great to be the “cranky neighbor” of the country, yelling at all of the atheists to “get off my lawn!”
I don’t feel like going into the “Christian nation” thing anymore. It’s a stupid argument, and it’s wrong.
I’m not even going to make fun of him for saying “schoolhouses,” like this is Little House on the Prairie. Or for believing that atheists are watching his telecast.
Frankly, I think that going too deeply in any of his blathering would be a waste of time because it gives his words too much credit. He’s wrong, and anyone who has the cognitive ability to read this article knows it. He sees the world in black and white. With us or against us. I’m not sure what the Jewish or Muslim or Hindu or Buddhist population has to say about all of this. I presume he wants them to get on a plane, too.
Did this man utterly miss the point of the founding of the country? The whole “fleeing religious persecution” thing?
Keep it up, Mr. Hagee. Between you and Charles Worley, you’re really setting the bar for Christian love everywhere.
