in a recent sermon and blog post i raised the issue of the relationship between spiritual leaders and political leaders (see "an unfortunate development," left). one point i made was that the discussion was unfair because all of the attention was focused on senator obama and rev. jeremiah wright, while few talked about senator john mccain and pastor john hagee of san antonio. pastor hagee has made inflammatory comments about the catholic church for years. however, yesterday he detracted his language.
