Tim did you know that Hagee apologized to catholics today.

Ehh.. Well at least he had the humility to apologize. It's probably more political than anything else though. His apology falls short in that he says "the anti-Jewish violence of the crusades doesnt define the Catholic Church" whereas he needs to say it doesnt have ANYTHING whatosever to do with the Catholic Church (whatever truth their might be in it I dont know). The crusades, Mr. Hagee, are the reason you're not living under Sharia Law right now so you'd do well do be more thankful for what the Catholic Church did for you.

Anyway I accept his apology but his words have been pretty bad in the past.

I know. But it is a start. Even, if politics provoked it. (That's strange in itself, something good coming from polictics.) :)

But, for someone who spoke out against the Catholic Church for so long to make a step forward in charity, shows God is working in Him.

We will have to wait and see what the actual letter reads, to get the full story, I am sure.

I am sure you're right. And Hagee may have his heart fully in the right place I don't know. I hope God is working on him. Heck I hope he converts and takes his congregation with him. It wont be the first time it's happened!

Kim said...

Wouldn't it be something if he did convert?

Tim,
Here is the web link containing the letter Hagee sent. If you are interested. I was unable to upload page one.

If you are unable to access the site with this link, go to the Cathloic League web site.
