You may have heard of Rev. John Hagee, the McCain supporter
who said God created Hurricane Katrina to punish New Orleans for its
homosexual “sins”
. Well now meet Rev. Rod Parsley, the televangelist megachurch pastor from Ohio who hates Islam. According to David Corn of Mother Jones, Parsley has called
on Christians to wage war against Islam, which he considers to be a
“false religion”. In the past, Parsley has also railed against the separation of church and state, homosexuals, and abortion rights,
comparing Planned Parenthood to Nazis
. John McCain actively sought and received Parsley’s endorsement in the presidential race. McCain has called Parsley “a spiritual guide”, and he hasn’t said whether he shares Parsley’s
vicious anti-Islam views. That’s because the mainstream media
refuses to ask. And so, we’ve taken matters into our own hands, joining Mother Jones to present the truth about McCain’s pastor. Since the media won’t question McCain about his deeply bigoted pastor, it’s up to you to call attention to this issue. Make McCain’s pastor problem a major story by
forwarding this video to your family, friends, and colleagues. We can’t let McCain get away with aligning himself with a religious leader who’s called for an all-out war on Islam, someone who draws no distinctions between Muslims and violent Islamic extremists. Now is the crucial time to act.
