‘God will hold you accountable for not voting for Trump’

TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY JOSEPH KRAUSS US pastor John Hagee speaks during a visit with Evangelical Christians to Ariel Israeli settlement in the occupied Palestinian territory on April 3, 2008. Evangelical Christians may feel they have been left out in the cold by US election fever, with none of the three remaining candidates generating the excitement of President George W. Bush's successful 2004 run. But in Ariel they received an enthusiastic welcome, not only because of the millions of dollars they have given the settlement, but because of pastor Hagee's firm opposition to giving anything to the Palestinians.

That is according to John Hagee and God, I hope so.

Here’s more on Hagee.

  1. Hagee has just violated the terms of his nonprofit status with the IRS…again. But yet he continues his politicking with complete impunity. Essentially at taxpayer expense.

    Forgiving his ignorance, the man remains a cheat and a liar…funded in no small amount by you and me.

    • Unbelievable that we’re still allowing tax-exempt status for folks like this.

      • I think actual compliance…as opposed to token compliance…with 501(c)(3) guidelines is rare among those nonprofits that have a pronounced media presence…whether they’re religious or not.

        • I think you’re right. I guess no one has the stomach for reining them in.

          • Insisting on actual compliance from one sector would mean imposing the same compliance on another.
            That’s why you won’t find folks like the (allegedly) nonprofit Foundation for National Progress (Mother Jones) exerting much energy insisting on actual compliance from folks like the (allegedly) nonprofit Global Evangelism Television (Hagee/Cornerstone Church).

            It’s a goose and gander situation.
            And even if the IRS wanted to investigate and prosecute noncompliance, it just doesn’t have the funds. Thanks to Congress.

  2. Anybody notice how many Bible Thumping states are (1) mired in poverty, (2) have terrible health care, (3) are way behind in education; (4) think guns are just wonderful for everybody all the time everywhere?

    Yeah, just wondered.

    See, if those so-callled “Christians” really understood the bible they really have never read about Chirst’s teachings, well they would vote differently.

    • And again I say that the best book on this — ever — is “Deer Hunting With Jesus: Dispatches From America’s Class Wars,” by the late, great Joe Bageant. I’d loan out my copy but I already did and it hasn’t come back.
