Pastor John Hagee rants about how porn impacts society.

https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7uxt4j

This may be the craziest quote by the charismatic evangelical pastor John Hagee. Hagee has a history of making wild statements. We can't deny that Hagee has good intentions, but these intentions are obscured by mental illness. He is one of the great preachers of our time I will admit. His son does not have his gift of charisma.

Yes "we" can, very easily. He's a ranting, anti-semitic, homophobic, reality denying, god bothering nutcase who blamed the catholic church for Hitler (who he also stated was a "half-breed" Jew) and the Holocaust; the latter was also "god's will".

I repeat: he's a ranting, anti-semitic, homophobic, reality denying, god bothering nutcase who wants to impose his brand of god bothering nuttery on others.

So. One of the greatest preachers of all time then?

What I want to know don't really care about is how large a porn stash (not porn 'stache) this nitwit has so that he can be so sure of its impact on society. My guess is that he has a large and extensive collection.

My favorite quote from him is when he listed things that Jesus must have been tempted by, because Jesus was a human, and we all get tempted, so he must have also been tempted by the same things that tempt all of us, because, of course, we're all tempted by them.

I don't recall the whole list, but it went something like "He was tempted by theft, he was tempted by violence, he was tempted by laziness, he was tempted by homosexuality..."

I don't believe he thought through what that last one was admitting in public about himself.

John Hagee:
Quote:
Do you know the difference between a woman with PMS and a snarling Doberman pinscher? The answer is lipstick. Do you know the difference between a terrorist and a woman with PMS? You can negotiate with a terrorist.
From this article. Seems nice.

As to “those that protest the loudest”....

Years back, the St. Louis prosecutor launched a war against pornography, primarily against the proliferation of videos available in the brand-new VHS format. Many mom and pop video stores had their stock seized, or were shut down entirely. (As I recall there were no successful prosecutions....)
At any rate, the dear fellow was caught in a prostitution sting in the county, and subsequently his large collection of “evidence” videos was uncovered, as well as his habit of using city funds for his naughty activities....

I'm guessing there's some freaky **** in his browser history.

I'm leaning more towards something like "Two Gay Men Full Frontal Hugging and Dancing."

That's usually the way - look at Jimmy Swaggert and Ted Haggard.

Well, one would think he studied the topic before talking about it, right? I mean, what if he's wrong about men being tempted by homosexual stuff? Better watch a large enough sample of that stuff to have some statistical confidence that it is so, right?

Follow the money. He must be running late on all the mortgage repayments for his many mansions, or his massive internet download and PornHub bills, or something. So this preaching is always followed by the passing of the plate and tithing requests.
