Hagee and the Antichrist

Hagee described the Antichrist as a seductive figure with "fierce features." He will be "a blasphemer and a homosexual," the pastor announced. Then, Hagee boomed, "There's a phrase in Scripture used solely to identify the Jewish people. It suggests that the Antichrist is at least going to be partially Jewish, as was Adolph Hitler, as was Karl Marx."

Liebermann and McCain must be mildly uncomfortable about all this. And these and many similar views of Hagee were well known before McCain spent over a year getting Hagee's endorsement.

Purely from the viewpoint of global warming, nuclear noncooperation with Iran and the early destruction of human life on earth, Hagee may - roughly - be right. From the point of view of folk psychology, of course. World peace and ecology are still very much more used as terms in political speeches than dealt with in fact. A lot should actually be done about such matters by persons on all sides. "Job 34:24 He shall break in pieces mighty men without number, and set others in their stead. Therefore he knoweth their works, and he overturneth them in the night, so that they are destroyed."

IMO: Mindless speeches, speeches, speeches. It is all totally bizarre.
