On yesterday’s “Hagee Hotline,” Pastor John Hagee urged Christians to get out and vote and made it abundantly clear that he’ll be casting his vote for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in November.
After mangling Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s famous “not to speak is to speak” quote and falsely attributing it to Martin Niemöller, Hagee informed his viewing audience that “God will not hold us harmless” and so they have an obligation to vote.
“I’m going to vote for the candidate that’s going to make the U.S. military great again,” he said. “I’m going to vote for the party that is going to solve the immigration problem, not the one that has created the immigration problem. I’m going to support the party that brings jobs back from China … I’m not going to vote for the party that has betrayed Israel for the past seven years.”
“If you can read a newspaper, you know who I’m talking about,” Hagee said. “No candidate is perfect, but I want you to go vote and may God give us a leader who has the courage to put America first and stand up for we the people.”
