McCain Embraces Endorsement of Rabid Anti-Catholic

Catholic League president Bill Donohue criticized McCain for accepting John Hagee's endorsement yesterday:
[Hagee] has waged an unrelenting war against the Catholic Church. For example, he likes calling it ‘The Great Whore,’ an ‘apostate church,’ the ‘anti-Christ,’ and a ‘false cult system.’
“In Hagee’s latest book, Jerusalem Countdown, he calls Hitler a Catholic who murdered Jews while the Catholic Church did nothing. ‘The sell-out of Catholicism to Hitler began not with the people but with the Vatican itself,’ he writes.
Senator McCain is trying to shore up his weak evangelical base (where Huckabee is consistently strong); no doubt he also loves Hagee's near-fanatical support of Israel. Hagee goes so far as to claim the cup containing the blood of the saints, which the Whore of Babylon holds, represents the Jews who have died throughout history. (The Whore, of course, is the Catholic Church.)
