ORANGE ALERT: The (almost) daily outrage

"Then God sent a hunter. A hunter is someone who comes with a gun and he forces you. Hitler was a hunter." -- Evangelist John Hagee, a guest of honor at the dedication of the American embassy in Jerusalem

“Then God sent a hunter. A hunter is someone who comes with a gun and he forces you. Hitler was a hunter. And the Bible says — Jeremiah righty? — “they shall hunt them from every mountain and from every hill and out of the holes of the rocks,” meaning: there’s no place to hide. And that will be offensive to some people. Well, dear 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.

— John Hagee, in 2005. Hagee was a guest of honor at the dedication of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, Monday, May 14.
