Hagee endorses McCain

Surprise: Pastor John Hagee of San Antonio, founder of Christians United for Israel, endorsed Arizona Sen. John McCain for president — not ordained Baptist minister and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

The New York Times detailed Hagee’s, er, intriguing beliefs on Eretz Yisrael and end-times prophecies. While these beliefs may unsettle and/or confuse the secular Times, they’re in step with many other Americans. “(In) one poll last year, 42 per cent of Americans said they believed that ‘Israel was given to the Jewish people by God’, and 32 per cent that Israel is ‘part of the fulfilment of biblical prophecy and the Second Coming of Jesus,'” the Times Literary Supplement reported.Wonder if Hagee’s support shows a conservative shift towards McCain?
