Pastors and Politics

Recently, Republican presidential candidate John McCain rejected Pastor John Hagee’s endorsement of him. Hagee, who pastors San Antonio megachurch Cornerstone Church, said the endorsement was as an individual and not as a pastor. Apparently, McCain took issue to some of Hagee’s comments regarding the Catholic church and the Holocaust. Hard to say. Bottom line is, McCain’s people determined that Hagee’s comments were simply bad for business.

Hagee, meanwhile, has announced his withdrawal of his endorsement for the Arizona senator.

The un-endorsement is fitting, since Hagee should not have given it in the first place.

I’m not saying it because I’m an independent conservative who has problems with McCain, but rather for these reasons: a pastor’s job is three-fold: to evangelize (i.e., preach the Gospel), to edify or encourage other believers through discipleship and to teach the Bible. If anything gets in the way of these, they need to be halted.
