Hagee and Parsley, the Videos
Juliet Eilperin and Kimberly Kindy reported in today's Washington Post on Sen. John McCain's repudiation of the presidential endorsement of the Rev. John Hagee after learning about a sermon in which the megachurch pastor declared that God allowed the rise of Adolf Hitler because it resulted in returning Israel to the Jewish people.

The story also addresses the views of McCain-backer Rev. Rod Parsley, a television evangelist and senior pastor of World Harvest Church in Columbus, Ohio, who is best known for his views on Islam.

America was founded, in part, with the intention of seeing this false religion destroyed. And I believe Sept. 11, 2001 was a generational call to arms that we can no longer ignore."
