Hagee Vs Hagel; Christian Conservatives Mobilizing Against Hagel

CUFI role in Hagel opposition shows conservativesí resolve to stop confirmation

By Ron Kampeas ∑ January 29, 2013

WASHINGTON (JTA) -- Chuck Hagel has made strides in his bid to secure Senate confirmation as defense secretary, winning the endorsement of leading Jewish Democratic senators and meeting with the leaders of major American Jewish groups.

But conservative pro-Israel opposition remains fierce, bolstered by the pivotal role being played by Christians United For Israel, the Texas-based group founded by Pastor John Hagee.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), the first senator to come out against Hagelís nomination, did so at Hageeís behest, both men revealed on Monday.

CUFIís affiliated Action Fund also has rallied hundreds of Christian pastors and leaders to Washington this week to lobby against the former Nebraska senatorís bid to succeed Leon Panetta.

1. Hagee is gross

I'm surprised Cornyn would stoop this low. Seriously, Hagee is sort of this "blob" in San Antonio. Not highly respected outside of his own circles.

Cornyn is from San Antonio and knows the local scene.

5. Hagee is an idiot . . .

Who probably thinks that "Left Behind" series was a great movie making.

3. If I recall, there is no Constitutional right exempting churches from taxation.

I think it's high time that the Congress and the IRS revisit the rules that churches who want to be in the politics business should lose their tax exemption status. Better yet, they should do away with it altogether and let them all start paying their fair share of taxes. After all I don't think the Lord ever intended for these megachurch's to exist in his name.

4. The term "Christian Conservative"

is an oxymoron.

6. Hagee's opposition should clinch it for Hagel.

Hagee is a Christian Zionist and probably a fascist Dominionist also.
