McCain Rejects, Denounces Evangelical Kooks

As expected, John McCain officially threw Rev. John Hagee under the “Straight Talk Express” bus yesterday following the release of a recording earlier in the week in which Hagee claimed Hitler and the Holocaust had been part of God’s plan to chase the Jews from Europe and drive them to Palestine. Later in the day, Pastor Ron Parsley of the World Harvest Church — another one of McCain’s previously sought-after “spiritual guides” — was likewise pushed overboard after his vehemently anti-Muslim sermons were broadcast on ABC’s Good Morning America. News of the rejections sent McCain’s rating on the “God-O-Meter” plunging to a new low.
