Take this quote for instance:
"'And they the hunters should hunt them,' that will be the Jews. 'From every mountain and from every hill and from out of the holes of the rocks.' If that doesn't describe what Hitler did in the holocaust you can't see that."
"Theodore Hertzel is the father of Zionism. He was a Jew who at the turn of the 19th century said, this land is our land, God wants us to live there. So he went to the Jews of Europe and said 'I want you to come and join me in the land of Israel.' So few went that Hertzel went into depression. Those who came founded Israel; those who did not went through the hell of the holocaust.
"Then god sent a hunter. A hunter is someone with a gun and he forces you. Hitler was a hunter. And the Bible says—Jeremiah writing—'They shall hunt them from every mountain and from every hill and from the holes of the rocks,' meaning there's no place to hide. And that might be offensive to some people but don't let your 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."
How dare he! How dare he say that the holocaust was a punishment inflicted upon the Jewish people by the wrath of God!
When I did believe in God many years ago, I would have still been offended and aghast at this Hagee person. Who the hell does he think he is preaching these things?
Don't tell me he thinks he's been sent by his god to tell the people of the earth that the holocaust was just God taking out his anger and frustration on us little peon humans who refuse to fold into a fetal position and wallow in self hate because we have done wrong to believe that we have a right to make decisions in our own damn lives!
Ugh! I can't even find the right words to form the sentences to explain how incredibly shocked I am at how this man can have a church...followers who hang on his every word. Do people really go about their lives not thinking for themselves but taking the word of a lunatic (yes, I'm calling Hagee a lunatic) as the word of a god they put their faith in?
I'm not a religious person. But I used to be and I can't imagine following someone so blindly so as to actually take the above quote to heart and believe that the horrific event that we now call the holocaust was anything other than a nightmare come true!
