McCain's Pastor: God Sent Hilter

Pastor John Hagee has said that John McCain sought his endorsement. And when it was given, Senator McCain said "I'm very proud to have Pastor Hagee's support."

Later, when it was pointed out that Hagee had called Catholicism "The Great Whore", and claimed that Hurricane Katrina was punishment for a parade which had been planned in New Orleans, the Senator said he didn't agree with all of the pastor's views. But McCain did not reject his support.

Now, an audio recording has surfaced where Hagee claims God sent Hitler to "hunt" the Jews, so they would eventually resettle in what is now Israel.
"Then god sent a hunter. A hunter is someone with a gun and he forces you. Hitler was a hunter. And the Bible says -- Jeremiah writing -- 'They shall hunt them from every mountain and from every hill and from the holes of the rocks,' meaning there's no place to hide. And that might be offensive to some people but don't let your heart be offended. I didn't write it, Jeremiah wrote it. It was the truth and it is the truth. How did it happen? Because God allowed it to happen. Why did it happen? Because God said my top priority for the Jewish people is to get them to come back to the land of Israel."
