Right-wing, anti-gay Rev. John Hagee is back in the news. Last week, John McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, finally rejected the endorsement of the San Antonio-based Christian Zionist televangelist after a sermon surfaced that described the Holocaust as "God's will." The Huffington Post reports McCain confidante Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) continues to actively supporting Hagee:
Senator Joseph Lieberman is scheduled to headline Pastor John Hagee’s 2008 Christians United For Israel Washington-Israel Summit this July 22. In accepting Hagee’s invitation, Lieberman became the most senior elected representative confirmed to appear at the annual gala.
Hagee has called the Catholic Church "the great whore" and claimed Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans because it was "planning a sinful" "homosexual rally." McCain has not distanced himself from Hagee's outlandish homophobic vitriol.
