Texas Pastor John Hagee Tells Atheists To Get On A Plane, 'Leave The Country'

In a sermon on Sunday, Texas megachurch pastor John Hagee advised atheists and humanists to “take your Walkman and stuff it into your ears” or just “leave the country” if they don’t like hearing "Merry Christmas" or carols like "Joy to the World," according to a video of Hagee’s speech hosted on Right Wing Watch.

“Planes are leaving every hour on the hour. Get on one," Hagee added, speaking from his Cornerstone Church in San Antonio.

Sunday’s sermon was not the first time the televangelist suggested nonbelievers leave the country. In a June 2012 sermon, Hagee, who is also the CEO of Global Evangelism Television, told the “atheist watching this telecast” that “this country was not built for atheists nor by atheists.”

“It was built by Christian people who believed in the word of God. ... If our belief in God offends you, move,” Hagee said before informing atheists that "we don’t want you and we won’t miss you, I promise you.”

    ^medyo faulty din ang theology nyang si John Hagee. Masyadong pro-Israel. Sabi ba naman hindi accountable ang Jews dahil hindi naman daw sila inofferan ng Messiahship ni Jesus. :glee:

    Whatever happened to "Love Ye One Another"??

    It just shows you that when put to the test, these Xtians reveal themselves to be the biggest cliquish a-holes around. It doesn't look like any of the stuff they keep telling people to believe and follow really made a difference in their own lives. :rolleyes:

    Anyway, Hagee's rhetoric is misguided. What the "militant atheists" are railing against is the use of government funds that favor a particular religion - Xtianity in this case.

  • Doesn't he know that many of the current pillars of US economy are atheists (Gates, Zuckerberg, etc.)?
