Pelosi Picks up On Hagee

Via Nico Pitney at Huffington Post:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the most prominent Catholic serving in the U.S. government, called on Sen. John McCain to reject the endorsement of Texas televangelist John Hagee, who has labeled the Catholic church “the great whore,” a “false cult system,” and linked it to Hitler’s Nazi movement.

“That behavior is outside the circle of civilized debate in our democracy,” Pelosi said during a Thursday conference call. “I certainly think John McCain should reject his endorsement and I’m sure it won’t be long before he does.”
