McCAIN DENOUNCES ANTI-CATHOLICISM;
CITES HAGEE'S ROLE
It was reported over the weekend that Sen. John McCain denounced anti-Catholicism and explicitly mentioned Rev. John Hagee's role. McCain said that "I repudiate any comments that are made, including Pastor Hagee's, if they are anti-Catholic or offensive to Catholics."
Catholic League president Bill Donohue commented as follows:
"Sen. McCain has done the right thing and we salute him for doing so. As far as the Catholic League is concerned, this case is closed."
