NY Catholic Mom goes into detail about the difference between Huckabee's speaking with Pastor Hagee and McCain's accepting his endorsement. Hagee is an anti-Catholic hate monger who is promulgating outright lies about the Catholic Church and the Catholic League is right; he is worse than Louis Farrakhan.
Bill Donohue is trying to get a response from McCain who as yet hasn't spoken publicly about Pastor Hagee's endorsement. Bill Donohue says" Yesterday, CNN's Wolf Blitzer asked Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson about my criticism of McCain. He asked, "Should John McCain repudiate and reject the comments, the support from John Hagee, just as Barack Obama has done that with the Rev. Louis Farrakhan?" Hutchinson responded by saying, "Well, I think there are two very different situations. John Hagee, Pastor Hagee, has done some very good things, particularly with regard to Israel and the support for Israel and denouncing terrorism in that area. And he has a very large congregation. His endorsement, I think, is for people who believe and work for him. And he does some good things." She then said McCain wouldn't support anti-Catholicism.
"Farrakhan has done some very good things, too. He has called upon young black men to steer clear of drugs and to support their families. Yet no one is citing his good work as a justification for his bigoted comments. The same rule should apply to Hagee. We hope McCain gives us something concrete the next time he speaks. "
Why should Farrakhan be called on the carpet for his bigoted remarks while Pastor Hagee gets a pass?
