Pastor John Hagee: 'Counterfeit Christians' Supporting LGBT Rights Are America's Biggest Threat: VIDEO

  Screen Shot 2014-08-08 at 12.13.11 PM

For televangelist John Hagee the biggest threat facing Americans today are those “counterfeit Christians” whom, amongst other things, either endorse womens’ open access to abortions or support LGBT rights to marriage. Hagee, known for founding San Antinio’s Cornerstone Megachurch, has made a name for himself  through John Hagee Ministries, his series of radio and television ministries that are broadcast to over 150 million households in North America.

“Those of you who got on national television and endorsed homosexual lifestyle because the president did so, you are a counterfeit Christian, you are a moral coward, you are a hireling shepherd,” Hagee said, condemning the increasing number of pastors that are accepting of homosexuality. “Shame on you.”

  1. I see wing-nut hatred and vitriol is up 3000%.

    Welcome to the dog-days of summer when there is nothing else for people to focus on.

  3. I am sorry but this holier than thou jackass is the #1 counterfeit Christian if he can cay that he is sin free. NOT POSSIBLE FAT ASS!!! Did he read that "judge not that ye be not judged" and that whosoever believes in Jesus will be saved. (Whosever includes GLBT) I guess he and the rest of the sinners in that audience have some'splaining to do to God.

  4. There's a counterfeit Christian in the mirror, pal. Take a look.

  5. As this… words cannot describe… thing is obviously the product of an abortion, maybe he knows of what he speaks. Not.

  7. Christian's don't lie? The Bible is a lie.
    Of course, if anyone quesions the Bible for factual historical data the Christian's will produce some more wordsmithing to prove the Bible's wordsmithing. They have NO facts.

    Christian's have NO moral authority, The Christian and the Muslim religions are the opposite of a faith in a loving God.

  8. Why is this news? Why does this site have an obsession over these types of news stories? Are there no real special interest stories out there? Seriously

  9. He's right about pro-gay Christians being counterfeit. Have they never read the Bible? It's full of hate.

  10. As Calvin would proclaim: "Opposite Day! Anything said is the exact opposite"....in this fool's and Uganda's case it's a lifetime of opposites.

  11. He's still pissed because his minions were unable to stop the San Antonio Nondiscrimination Ordinance.

  12. Just another closet case wating for his Larry Craig moment in the sunshine

  13. "broadcast to over 150 million households in North America"? There are not 150 million households in NA and I doubt if more than a very small percentage actually watch his show!

  14. The ancient ideas of Physiognomy are usually dismissed as unscientific. Nonetheless, the proposition that someone's inner character is revealed by the outer appearance seems to be accurate in the case of Hagee and just about any hateful, bigoted, pompous, manipulative denagogish Theocrat, racist or self-righteous crook I have seen. This man is a pus bag of vile excretions pretending to represent a system of beliefs that has plenty of nastiness hanging on to it but still retains kernels of love and compassion.

  15. I think this is significant. Once the more conservative Christian denominations start attacking LGBT-accepting churches as "not Christian", then this aspect of the larger debate changes: opposition to LGBT acceptance becomes seen as a matter of sectarian squabbling, and the whole "Christianity vs. secularism" narrative crumbles.

  16. What would this gluttonous Protestant bigot know about true Christianity? He's about the furthest thing from a true follower of Christ than anything I can think of.

  17. superstition is never a good thing.

    anyone who needs a make believe sky god,
    really needs an intervention.

  18. Well, this comes from a preacher who said the Catholic Church is the whore of Babylon. Yet the leaders of the Catholic Church are among the biggest enemies of LGBT people.

  19. I do like his chair though!! I have the same one in my office.

  20. Hagee wouldn't know a real Christian if one hit him in the head<<<

  21. Unless he is a Catholic, he has no right to claim he himself is a "real" Christian. Christians also need to evolve with the society to stay relevant. Soon he will be in the minority.

  22. Posterboy for Gluttony. Stone him.

  23. He sure knows how to hate like a Christian.

  24. That this super phony, money grubbing, nonsense peddling, dogmatic idiot, cheerleader for ALL things Chri$tian EXCEPT Christ, and yes bloated toad has the audacity to call anyone ELSE "counterfeit" is totally laughable . . .


    Look closely at the video, for once the vast majority of his mentally challenged hard core and usually marionette like supporters did not applaud and shriek together as one. The script called for that. Listening to this bombastic charlatan instead the vast majority sat stunned. Could it be that this proselytizing Emperor of "Christian" Hate has no clothes? Yes.

    Posted by: Mike | Aug 8, 2014 8:43:01 PM

  25. Most people would find this video abhorrent. His message, his tone, his obvious wealth, his eagerness to condemn--all turn offs for the majority of people. So, let him talk 'til his head explodes. This nonsense helps our case.
