Rev. Hagee: “It’s true that [John] McCain’s campaign sought my endorsement”

We’ll see this Sunday in the NY Times magazine, Easter Sunday coincidentally. We know it now thanks to Greg Mitchell at Editor and Publisher:

In an interview that will appear in this Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, controversial televangelist Rev. John Hagee declares, “It’s true that [John] McCain’s campaign sought my endorsement.”

McCain has attempted to distance himself from some of Hagee’s views, much as Barack Obama is doing in relation to Rev. Jeremiah Wright. But unlike McCain, Obama has not stood on stage with Wright and accepted his accolades this year.

No wonder McCain was “honored” and “very proud” to receive Hagee’s endorsement, McCain actively sought Hagee’s endorsement.

So, this, of course, means we’ll start seeing endless coverage on cable news of John McCain’s relationship with Rev. Hagee, who thinks, among other outrages, that the Catholic Church is the “great whore.” Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough and that painful David Gregory will undoubtedly convene panels to examine every detail of the McCain/Hagee relationship.
