Catholic League Angry

Washington Post reported The president of the Catholic League today blasted Sen. John McCain for accepting the endorsement of Texas evangelicalist John Hagee, calling the controversial pastor a bigot who has "waged an unrelenting war against the Catholic Church."
In this unrelenting war, how many people have been killed? How many buildings have been blown up? Did Hagee even lead any mass demonstrations in the street? Or did he just say unkind things about Catholics, and have Catholics responded by saying unkind things about Hagee, like for example calling him a bigot?
Hagee, who is known for his crusading support of Israel, backed McCain's presidential bid Wednesday, standing next to the senator at a hotel in San Antonio and calling McCain "a man of principle." But Catholic League President Bill Donohue said in a statement today that Hagee has written extensively in negative ways about the Catholic Church, "calling it 'The Great Whore,' an 'apostate church,' the 'anti-Christ,' and a 'false cult system.'"
Does that make them true?
"Senator Obama has repudiated the endorsement of Louis Farrakhan, another bigot. McCain should follow suit and retract his embrace of Hagee," Donohue said.
McCain's campaign is not focuse on religious belief, so I see no reason for people with different religious beliefs to expect him to get involved in those arguments. McCain is Pro Life, and Hillary and Obama are Pro Choice. Can the Catholic Church embrace someone that likes abortion?

Obama is a member of a church that itself is pretty extreme in its anti white views. Not as bad as Farrakhan, but pretty bad, and yet Obama is pretending to have none of those views, so he must be particularly carful not get associated with Farrakhan's views.
