<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>but how does obama view him?<p><hr></blockquote><p> I can only repeat, Why does it matter? My priest and pastor while I was growing up had zero say in how I would comport myself as President of the United States. God forbid any preacher has that power over anyone. <br><br>I would not believe Senator McCain should be sullied by his friendship and endorsement by Catholic hating Pastor Hagee even though McCain called Hagee “the staunchest leader of our Christian evangelical movement,” and praised his pro-Israel stance.<br><br>Now he is stupidly trying to distance himself from Hagee just as Obama is doing with Wright. "I repudiate any comments that are made, including Pastor Hagee's."<br><br>It is a stupid stupid topic. <br><br>
