Meet the New Face of Militant Fundamentalism

And he's an American Christian who wants you to die to fulfill his death wish.

Pastor John Hagee threw his support behind John McCain, and McCain was "very honored" by the endorsement.

The only problem is that Hagee wants to kill us all to bring about the second coming of his savior.  In 2006, he said:

The United States must join Israel in a pre-emptive military strike against Iran to fulfill God’s plan for both Israel and the West… a biblically prophesied end-time confrontation with Iran, which will lead to the Rapture, Tribulation, and Second Coming of Christ.

Do you understand this - a pre-emptive strike against Iran will destabilize the entire region, prompting all sorts of retaliatory attacks on America, possible nuclear retaliation as well, which will bring the end of civilization as we know it.

In other words, Hagee's wish is a self-fulfilling - the world ends whether he's right or not, meaning he gets to die thinking he's right when he's not.

This is what happens when you mix religion and politics - you get nut-jobs who care not one whit about other human life, as long as their dementia and delusions are given respect in the light of day.

If you're religious, remember this - your God is probably Hagee's God as well.  If you're Christian, remember your Bible is the same one Hagee reads and fabricates his anti-human philosophy from.

There is no such thing as a religious moderate - you're either a rational human being who realizes there is no sky-spirit, or you're an enabler of fundamentalists who want to kill everyone.
