Well, I am SHOCKED that this wacko is from my home state of Texas. Take a bow, Fox News. You idiots are responsible for perpetrating this WAR ON CHRISTMAS!!!! crap. The United States is the most tolerant nation on earth when it comes to religion (or a person’s lack of one), and we are NOT a “Christian nation.” Good effin’ grief.
In a sermon on Sunday, Texas megachurch pastor John Hagee advised atheists and humanists to “take your Walkman and stuff it into your ears” or just “leave the country” if they don’t like hearing “Merry Christmas” or carols like “Joy to the World,” according to a video of Hagee’s speech hosted on Right Wing Watch.
A Walkman???!!! Does this guy make phone calls with cups and string, too??!! Dude, 1975 called and wants its 8-track tapes back.
“It was built by Christian people who believed in the word of God. … If our belief in God offends you, move,” Hagee said before informing atheists that “we don’t want you and we won’t miss you, I promise you.”
Nope! Your text to link…
In a 2006 interview with NPR, he also claimed that Hurricane Katrina, which killed more than 1,800 people, was an “act of God” to punish a Gay Pride parade scheduled in New Orleans.
“And the promise of that parade was that it was going to reach a level of sexuality never demonstrated before in any of the other Gay Pride parades,” Hagee said. “I believe that the Bible teaches that when you violate the law of God, that God brings punishment, sometimes before the day of judgment. And I believe that the Hurricane Katrina was, in fact, the judgment of God against the city of New Orleans.”
Your Republican Party, ladies and gentleman.
