Troubled by influence of pastor

Posted: Friday, September 05, 2008

Does Sen. John McCain believe in the end of the world like evangelical spiritual mentor John Hagee?

Does McCain believe like Hagee that supporting Israel will bring about the final battle of Armageddon, with satanic armies descending on earth?

Fire and brimstone Pastor Hagee is best known for denouncing Catholicism as a "godless theology of hate." Hagee called Hurricane Katrina "the judgment of God" to punish gays in New Orleans. And McCain declared himself "very proud" to have Hagee's endorsement.

Does John McCain's vice presidential pick, Gov. Sarah Palin, who would be only a heartbeat away from the presidency, think the same way?
