John Hagee, Bigot?

What exactly is a bigot?

Can a person be a bigot regarding just one group of people, yet devotedly supportive of another group, both of which are not of their ancestry?

YES.
From the 15th century on Old French bigot meant "an excessively devoted or hypocritical person." Bigot is first recorded in English in 1598 with the sense "a superstitious hypocrite."

I have listened to John Hagee for many years, not devotedly, and not to learn, but to try to understand how he seems so far off course, yet continues to seemingly be blessed and prosper. Unfortunately, I have drawn no meaningful conclusions.

A prophet or pastor cannot tell us things that the Bible has specifically said we are not to know. Hagee's continuous teachings on the end times is a perfect example of what not to do.

That aside, even if the most awful antichrist does happen to be a Catholic, that in no way diminishes the Catholic faith, the Vatican, or the many saints and martyrs that have gone before us.

Do we condemn all teachers because a few of them are pedifiles? NO.

Do we condemn all law enforcement because some of them are crooked, bigots, or violent at home? NO.

Why then, can a pastor who claims to be called of God, by God, to spread the gospel ("good news" brother Hagee, not condemnation) be so far off the mark?

I don't know the answer to that one.

McCain needs to rethink this endorcement. In his defense, I'm pretty sure he didn't know about the bigotry, and now he is probably afraid of offending evangelicals by renouncing the endorsement of Hagee.

Everything is not as it seems.

Do the research, learn the truth.
