John McCain's pastors have gone to ground.
It's been a rough year for the Republican presidential candidate's prominent evangelical supporters. The Rev. John Hagee got in hot water for suggesting that God was behind the Holocaust and that the Roman Catholic Church is a "great whore." The Rev. Rod Parsley had some uncharitable thoughts on Islam being an "anti-Christ religion."
So it follows that all eyes would be on Hagee's group (Parsley is a regional director) when it came to town this week for its third annual "summit" of Christian Zionists. The group, Christians United for Israel, booked the convention and publicized its agenda widely in the media.
But Hagee seems to have had a conversion on the road to Washington.
