John Hagee: If You Don’t Like Hearing ‘Merry Christmas’ Leave The Country
After all, Jesus was not only white, he was American, am I right? I’m no many atheists and non-Christians, (I fall in to at least one of these categories), and I’ve never heard anyone taking offense and the words “Merry Christmas.” But unless the right makes believe that is the case, there can be no “war.” Can’t wait to see the battle lines drawn again next year.
On Sunday, John Hagee delivered a sermon to his congregation during which he raged against the supposed “War on Christmas” which he began by declaring that America was founded as, and still remains, a Christian nation. As such, if atheists and humanists don’t like being wished a “Merry Christmas” … well, they can just get out of the country.
Telling atheists to get out of America is one of Hagee’s favorite pieces of advice, so it was no surprise to hear him declare it again during his Sunday sermon when he told any atheists listening that “if you pass a manger scene and someone is singing ‘Joy To The World,’ you can take your Walkman and stuff it into your ears, or you can call your lawyer, or you can just exercise your right to leave the country; planes are leaving every hour on the hour, get on one,”
