With Trump, The Religious Right Returns To Its White Nationalist Roots
Huffington Post - 4 months
It will be difficult for Religious Right leaders to position themselves as the principled guardians of "family values" after tying their political fortunes so closely with those of Donald Trump. They have given their blessing to a candidate who regularly berates and demeans women, people with disabilities, and racial and religious minorities, who in the past has mocked Jesus and boasted that he never seeks forgiveness, and who seems to completely lack any sense of decency, humility or morality. Even after a tape revealed that Trump once bragged about sexually assaulting women, Religious Right leaders stood by him. The only prominent defector eventually re-endorsed the candidate. Some have gone so far as to refer to Trump as God's anointed candidate, and at least one prominent pastor has actually hailed him for ignoring Jesus' teachings. It's almost as if there is nothing Trump can do that would shock his defenders in the Religious Right movement, who are counting on a Presi ...

Why Is the Media Ignoring Ted Cruz's Embrace of 'Kill the Gays' Pastor?
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Last weekend Senator Ted Cruz, along with fellow GOP presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, spoke at a conference in Des Moines headed up by a man who advocates the execution of gay people -- per his interpretation of the bible -- and who made his call for mass extermination once again, onstage at the event, the National Religious Liberties Conference. Pastor Kevin Swanson has said in the past that Christians should attend gay weddings and hold up signs telling the newly married gay and lesbian couples that they "should be put to death." He was an advocate of Uganda's infamous "Kill the Gays" bill, which he saw as a "model." At the confab over the weekend, where he introduced Huckabee, Jindal and Cruz to the audience -- and where Ted Cruz's father, Rafael Cruz, an anti-gay Tea Party crusader, was a star speaker -- he reiterated his death penalty call, adding that homosexuals should first be given some time to repent before the executions begin.

Learning from someone who has been there, done that, it is no longer OPTIONAL to succeed quickly. I have been fascinated for a long time on the topic of learning in general, and, specifically, the role of conversations with the right people to accelerate learning. As we speak, Yale University researchers are just now exploring the changes in brain chemistry when two people are engaged in a conversation. We don't have to wait for the research to be concluded, because, in real life, I have experienced that myself. I know for a fact that ONE conversation can change the trajectory of your life, and I have heard this over and over again from other successful entrepreneurs and business leaders.

RELIGIOUS FANATICISM IS A HUGE FACTOR IN AMERICANS’ SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL
Intifada - almost 2 years
A new poll from Bloomberg Politics contains a finding that, if you really think about it, is quite remarkable:   BY GLENN GREENWALD Almost half of all Americans want to support Israel even if its interests diverge from the interests of their own country. Only a minority of Americans (47 percent) say that their country should pursue their own interests over supporting Israel’s when the two choices collide. It’s the ultimate violation of George Washington’s 1796 Farewell Address warning that “nothing is more essential than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular nations, and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded. … The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave.” It is inconceivable that a substantial portion of Americans would want to support any other foreign country even where doing so was contrary to U.S. interests. Only Israel commands anything near that level of devoted, self ...

Fox News Blows Eclipse Coverage
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Fox News is famous for giving a fair and balanced voice to alternative views, especially when countering scientific consensus with opinions likely to be preferred by the broadcast company's fans. A good example of this is global warming science, which Fox News reporters are required to contradict. As recently as two weeks ago Fox News personality Lauren Green was following this directive as it applies to eclipses. She earnestly asked, "Does God use the motion of planets to communicate with us?" In her segment, entitled "Is the cosmos telling us the end is near?" she interviewed Cornerstone Church Pastor John Hagee on how God uses the sun, moon and stars to let us know who's boss. The pastor bolstered his claims by saying "This is something you can check on the Internet." The host was fascinated by the topic, but pointed out that there are other opinions. "There are a lot of people who will poo poo any End Time prophesy." Fair and balanced. The weekend's eclipse coverage wa ...

Most Americans 18-29 Years Old Believe in Demon Possession, Shows Survey
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Are Americans becoming less religious? While church affiliation is probably declining, don't expect the atheist revolution anytime soon: Over one half (63 percent, to be exact) of young Americans 18-29 years old now believe in the notion that invisible, non-corporeal entities called "demons" can take partial or total control of human beings, revealed an October 2012 Public Policy Polling survey that also showed this belief isn't declining among the American population generally; it's growing. Throughout last year, triumphal atheists and secularists had celebrated (and many of the religiously-inclined bemoaned) a 2012 survey, from the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, which showed an increase, especially among young adults, in the number of Americans who declared no specific religious affiliation: a chunk of the population now up to almost 20 percent according to the survey. These Americans were dubbed the "nones." The Pew survey finding was interpreted by some observers (who ...

Rabbi Michael Bernstein: Seeing The World Through Torah's Rainbow
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
"There is the Torah way and there is the wrong way," says the man preaching to the congregation. Is the speaker a traditional rabbi? Actually, he is John Hagee the Senior Pastor of a non-denominational evangelical megachurch and the occasion is one of many "Nights to Honor Israel" organized by the group he founded called CUFI, Christians United For Israel. For those of us who love Israel and are deeply committed to her survival and well-being, it is hard not to be affected by the incredible outpouring of support, passion and general affection that is displayed at such events, whose participants are mainly Christians, but include as guests of honors Israeli dignitaries, rabbis and, touchingly, survivors of the Holocaust. Pastor Hagee does not gloss over the history of specifically Christian acts of anti-Semitism, proclaiming as part of his mission the repair of the damage done by different Church doctrines that made Jews targets of terrible injustices and violence. ...

Jason Stanford: Homeschool Advocates in Texas Co-opting Civil Rights Movement
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Some think that marriage equality is the civil rights fight of our time. Patrick Stewart made news when he called domestic violence against women the "single greatest human rights violation of our generation." But here in Texas, we've got a much bigger fight on our hands: Kids who are homeschooled or who go to private and parochial schools want access to the state's public school sports leagues. Where is Dr. King when we need him? Texas State Sen. Dan Patrick is from the Republican Party, and he's here to help. He thinks private charter schools should get public funding and wants to force public school sports leagues to include homeschoolers and private and parochial schools. And because Patrick is the Republican chair of the Education Committee, he'll probably get his way. Texas high school football coaches oppose the idea because it could fund the creation of college football factories masquerading as charter schools.

FP 50 Inadvertently Reveals Israel’s Dominance of GOP
Dissident Voice - over 4 years
Foreign Policy magazine has compiled a list of the 50 Republicans who have the greatest influence on the GOP’s foreign policy. “Politics is mostly about people — and nowhere is that more true than when it comes to foreign policy,” explains Foreign Policy in its introduction. With the U.S. presidential election looming, the magazine offers “to peel back the curtain on this rarefied part of the Establishment” to better inform American voters about “the advisers who will determine the country’s course in the world” in the event that they elect Mitt Romney. The FP 50, it says, are “all GOP partisans” from the different “ideological traditions” — namely, realism, neoconservatism, and “even” isolationism — that are “currently fighting for the soul of their party’s foreign policy.” A cursory look at the list, however, shows that a far more influential ideological tradition — Zionism — holds sway over the Republican Party. Although only about 20% of American Jews supported the GOP in 2008, t ...

Miguel Espinoza: Is Christian Zionism Compatible With The Two-State Solution?
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Thousands of evangelical Christians descended on Washington this week for the seventh annual Christians United for Israel ("CUFI") conference. Their goal: defend America and bless Israel. Efforts to forge peace in the Middle East have dominated United States foreign policy for more than two decades, with every president since George H.W. Bush wading into the same treacherous waters and failing to broker a permanent solution to the crisis. Yet even with contentious disagreements on a dauntingly wide range of issues, everyone including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas agrees on one thing: the goal of forging a two-state solution. Everyone, except for millions of America's most influential voters. More than one-in-four Americans self-identify as evangelical Christian. Conservatives court their political support. Liberals study their political resolve. George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter took office as born-again Christi ...

Christian Zionists Angered About ‘60 Minutes’ Broadcast on Israel
Charisma - almost 5 years
Twenty-four hours after the group distributed an action alert, members of Christians United for Israel (CUFI) sent more than 29,000 emails to CBS News expressing concern with the 60 Minutes story “Christians of the Holy Land” that aired on April 22. CBS News’ Bob Simon reported that the exodus from the Holy Land of Palestinian Christians could eventually leave holy cities like Jerusalem and Bethlehem without a local Christian population. A portion of the script of the “Christians of the Holy Land” reads: “Christianity may have been born in the Middle East, but Arab Christians have never had it easy there, especially not today. In Iraq and Egypt, scores of churches have been attacked, hundreds murdered. In Syria, revolution seriously threatens Christian communities. The one place where Christians are not suffering from violence is the Holy Land: but Palestinian Christians have been leaving in large numbers for years. So many, the Christian population there is down to less than two ...

Delusional Milestone
Dissident Voice - almost 5 years
Pastor John Hagee’s Christians United For Israel (CUFI) announced the “registration of their millionth member” on 18 March 2012. This organization, founded in 2006, with the goal of “realizing the political potential of tens of millions of evangelical Americans who support Israel” can also be said to have the goal of destroying, in the name of God no less, the legitimate political aspiration of Palestinian statehood. And, the CUFI now has as much influence with our Republican Congress as does the Jewish Zionist lobby, AIPAC.   Why should the devout Mr. Hagee and his one million followers be so enamored of Israel? Actually, they have no rational reasons to offer. However, they do have a number of non-rational ones. For example, “We support Israel because all other nations were created by an act of man, but Israel was created by an act of God.”   Hagee and his followers do not know that this is so. They just ardently believe it is so. Yet there is a difference between demonstrable fa ...

Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of John Hagee
    LATE_ADULTHOOD
  • 2008
    Age 67
    In 2008, Hagee endorsed Senator John McCain of Arizona in the presidential contest against Obama.
    More Details Hide Details
    Following the broadcast of Hagee's remarks in late May 2008, some orthodox and conservative Jews have come forward to defend Hagee against charges of antisemitism, although other Jews have applauded McCain for distancing himself from Hagee.
    More Details Hide Details In 2002, Hagee endorsed the conservative State Representative John Shields in the latter's unsuccessful bid for the Republican primary for the District 25 seat in the Texas Senate. Hagee dubbed Shields's opponent, incumbent Jeff Wentworth, "the most pro-abortion" of 181 legislators in both houses of the Texas legislature.
    In 2008, in response to a question about this matter, he differentiated between his interpretation of the Bible and his understanding of modern history: "I learn from the Bible that the children of Israel were punished by God for their iniquities.
    More Details Hide Details But I do not presume to explain Jewish suffering in modern times. I only seek to alleviate it." Hagee's interpretation of the historical role of Hitler and the Holocaust in relation to the foundation of the state of Israel has also caused offense. Hagee interprets a reference in Jeremiah 16:16 to "fishers" and "hunters" as symbols of positive motivation (Herzl and Zionism) and negative motivation (Hitler and Nazism) respectively, both sent by God for the purpose of having Jews return to the land of Israel, even suggesting that the Holocaust was willed by God because most Jews ignored Herzl's Zionist call.
    On May 12, 2008, Hagee issued a letter of apology to William Donohue, the president of the Catholic League, expressing regret for "any comments that Catholics have found hurtful."
    More Details Hide Details He apologized for condemning Catholics for what he viewed was their persecution of Jews, and outright stated that he did not believe that, and many other previously held views, any longer. He also said that the "great whore" comments were taken out of context and were not directed at the Catholic Church. He went on to explain that his comments about the Catholic Church were made "in my zeal to oppose anti-Semitism and bigotry in all its ugly forms. I have often emphasized the darkest chapters in the history of Catholic and Protestant relations with the Jews." Bill Donohue told Fox News, "I'm absolutely delighted... I haven't seen such a quick turnaround in the 15 years that I have been president of the Catholic League... The tone of Hagee's letter is sincere. He wants reconciliation and he has achieved it." "Indeed, the Catholic League welcomes his apology," Donohue wrote in a press release. "What Hagee has done takes courage and quite frankly I never expected him to demonstrate such sensitivity to our concerns. But he has done just that. Now Catholics, along with Jews, can work with Pastor Hagee in making interfaith relations stronger than ever. Whatever problems we had before are now history."
    Hagee claimed in March 2008, "I've learned that some have accused me of referring to the Catholic Church as the 'great whore,' of Revelation.
    More Details Hide Details This is a serious misinterpretation of my words. When I refer to the 'great whore', I am referring to the apostate church, namely those Christians who embrace the false cult system of Jew-hatred and antisemitism." Donohue rejected Hagee's explanation as disingenuous: "Anti-Catholic Protestants have long labeled the Catholic Church 'The Great Whore', and no amount of spin can change that reality. No one who knows anything about the term would suggest otherwise." Furthermore, Hagee did identify Great Whore of Babylon as Rome in his book From Daniel to Doomsday (1999), in a way that it became inherent to the Roman Empire and the Roman Catholic Church: "The evidence would point to Rome... It was Rome where Nero wrapped Christians in oily rags and hung them on lampposts, setting them ablaze to light his gardens. It was Rome that orchestrated the Crusades where Jews were slaughtered... It was Rome that orchestrated the Inquisitions throughout the known world where "heretics" were burned at the stake or pulled in half on torture racks because they were not Roman Catholic." (pp. 10–11)
    After Hagee's 2008 endorsement of U.S. Presidential candidate John McCain, a furor arose over comments, broadcasts, and writings made by Hagee that were seen as anti-Catholic.
    More Details Hide Details After discussions with Catholic leaders, Hagee made an apology, which was publicly accepted by Catholic League for Civil and Religious Rights president William A. Donohue. When Hagee made the endorsement, Donohue issued the following remarks regarding McCain's ties to Hagee: Now that he has secured the Republican nomination for president, and has received the endorsement of President Bush, McCain will now embark on a series of fundraising events. When he meets with Catholics, he is going to be asked about his ties to Hagee. He should also be asked whether he approves of comments like this: "A Godless theology of hate that no one dared try to stop for a thousand years produced a harvest of hate." That quote is proudly cited by David Brog in his recent book, Standing with Israel. Both Brog and Hagee clearly identify the Roman Catholic Church as spawning a "theology of hate".
  • 2006
    Age 65
    On the September 20, 2006, edition of National Public Radio's Fresh Air, Hagee discussed Islam, stating, "those who live by the Qur'an have a scriptural mandate to kill Christians and Jews... it teaches that very clearly."
    More Details Hide Details He then proceeded to characterize the military threat posed by those who follow Islamic scripture: "There are 1.3 billion people who follow the Islamic faith, so if you're saying there's only 15 percent that want to come to America or invade Israel to crush it, you're only talking about 200 million people. That's far more than Hitler and Japan and Italy and all of the Axis powers in World War II had under arms." Despite Hagee's professed "Christian Zionist" beliefs and public support for the state of Israel, Hagee has made statements that some have interpreted as antisemitic. In his book Jerusalem Countdown, Hagee claims that Adolf Hitler was born from a lineage of "accursed, genocidally murderous half-breed Jews." On page 149 in a chapter with the title 'Who Is a Jew?', Hagee writes: Hagee has attributed the persecution of Jews throughout history, implicitly including the Holocaust, to disobedience, thereby attracting accusations of antisemitism:
    On February 7, 2006, Hagee and some 400 leaders from across the Christian and Jewish communities formed a new national organization called Christians United for Israel (CUFI).
    More Details Hide Details This organization addresses members of the United States Congress, professing a Biblical justification for the defense of Israel. Around this time he received death threats for supporting Israel, and has since had bodyguards standing by while preaching at his church or at speaking engagements. Hagee was the primary early funding source for the Israeli Zionist group Im Tirtzu, which has pressured Israeli academics it accuses of being anti-Zionist and lobbied to have their funding cut for their political views. Hagee has been criticized for his statements about Israel, the Roman Catholic Church, and Islam. One notable critic is journalist Bill Moyers, who claims that Hagee and other evangelicals are working toward supporting the religious right. He states, "Someone who didn't know better could imagine from the very name Christians United For Israel—CUFI—that pastor John Hagee speaks for all Christians. Well, he doesn't... What these fellows have forged is a close connection between the W. Bush White House and the religious right."
  • 2005
    Age 64
    In his 2005 book Jerusalem Countdown: A Warning to the World, Hagee interprets the Bible to predict that Russia and the Islamic states will invade Israel and will be destroyed by God.
    More Details Hide Details This will cause the antichrist, the head of the European Union, to create a confrontation over Israel between China and the West. The book echoes predictions made in The Late, Great Planet Earth, the best-selling 1970 book co-authored by Hal Lindsey and Carole C. Carlson. The Christian Research Institute (among others) has strongly criticized Hagee's recent book, In Defense of Israel (2007), for apparently arguing that Jesus did not claim to be the Messiah for the Jews, only the Savior for the Christian Church, and therefore, that attempts should not be made to convert Jews. Hagee issued a statement denying the first of these allegations and promises to revise one chapter in a new edition to make his views clearer. The San Antonio B'nai B'rith Council awarded Hagee with its "Humanitarian of the Year" award. It was the first time this award was given to a non-Jew. Hagee was presented the Zionist Organization of America's Israel Award by U.N. Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick. This award was given by the Jewish Community of Dallas, Texas. He was presented the ZOA Service Award by Texas Governor Mark White.

  • 1987
    Age 46
    On October 4, 1987, Hagee dedicated a 5,000+-seat sanctuary and named it Cornerstone Church.
    More Details Hide Details Dr. W. A. Criswell, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, anointed Hagee and Diana Hagee, Pastor Hagee's second wife, before the congregation. Hagee has thirteen grandchildren. Matthew Hagee, John's youngest son, is the executive pastor of Cornerstone Church. Hagee believes in Pentecostal practices such as the "baptism of the Holy Spirit." He also believes in the "absolute authority of the scripture," baptism by immersion, and evangelism. Hagee believes the Bible commands Christians to support the State of Israel and the Jewish people. Because the land now known as Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank was ruled by the Ottoman Turks prior to World War I, then controlled by the British, and later partitioned under United Nations mandate, Hagee argues that the land does not belong to the Palestinian people, and that the name "Palestine" (deriving from that of the ancient Philistines) was imposed by the Roman Emperor Hadrian to punish the Jews for their revolt against the Roman Empire. Hagee has commented that there is no Palestinian language and no historic Palestinian nation.
