[su_right_ad]The appearance of Ebola must mean Jesus is soon to return.

Answering a question from a viewer on today’s “Hagee Hotline,” Hagee (wrongly) cited Matthew 24:7 to claim that Jesus warned that famines and pestilence would break out before his return (In Matthew, Jesus warned of “famines and earthquakes”; It was in Luke 21 where Jesus warned of “famines and pestilences.”)

“Pestilence is an illness for which there seems to be no cure,” Hagee said. “That would certainly describe Ebola”:

    The nut doesn’t fall from the tree…
    As if one Hagee wasn’t enough.

    “Pestilence is an illness for which there seems to be no cure,” Hagee said. “That would certainly describe Ebola”:

    It would also describe Conservatism.

    oh and by the way…

    lol, I guess it only counts because 2 Americans have Ebola, the africans, meh

      Yes, ever notice how major disasters tend to get more than on paragraph on page 18 of the local paper, only when someone from the local area is involved? “WW III starts, no Dacron residents involved. Details online.”

    Not for nothing but how is this even possible????

    UPDATE: Dallas health care workers didn’t wear protective gear for 2 days while treating Ebola patient

    And if this second nurse was coming out of West Africa she would have not been allowed on a plane if asked the pertinent questions.

    These moronic jesus freaks should all follow Jim Jones lead and drink the kool-aid…..

    I bet it is a sign of the end times for the GOP. Their obstruction of government and how it works is making the problem worse. People are going to die and the number would be smaller if the republicans would get out of the way and quit playing politics with Americans lives. The blame is going to fall on the republicans for inaction because this is not a war you win with military hardware, but with healthcare.

    Famine and pestilence have been happening all over the world for centuries.

    I do try to respect everyone’s religious beliefs. However when confronted with this kind of cultural arrogance where events that have been going on for hundreds of years, are symbolic only when they happen in your country, I tend to dismiss these people as superstitious self-centered crackpots.

    • tiredoftea October 15th, 2014 at 9:20 pm

      Especially when Ebola vaccines, Z-Mapp, are already available!

    Matthew Hagee is the son of John Hagee. John Hagee believes every word of the Bible except the portions that refer to GLUTTONY, like Proverbs 23: “For the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty, and slumber will clothe them with rags.”

    Pastor John wants to discontinue food stamps for children, the disabled and elderly but he loves to stuff vast amounts of food into his over-sized mouth. His enormous ass weighs more than 2 or 3 normal human beings. And where does Pastor John get the money to fund his humongous appetite? He “earns” his money by going on TV and preaching hatred to gullible right-wing evangelical nincompoops.

      one of the finest commentaries I’ve seen in a long time – practically and art form.

  10. Budda October 15th, 2014 at 9:24 pm

    End times? Everything starts dying the minute it’s born.

  11. tiredoftea October 15th, 2014 at 9:24 pm

    How soon does he ask for end times donations?

    • neworleans878 October 15th, 2014 at 9:44 pm

      You bring up an interesting point..if it’s the end of times, then what the f*ck does he need money for?

      • tiredoftea October 15th, 2014 at 10:06 pm

        To prepare end times camps, of course! Or, in his case, end times mansion and jet to escape the masses of fools he gypped with his lies..

      • Larry Schmitt October 16th, 2014 at 9:11 am

        To set up an End Times souvenir shop.

      • Dwendt44 October 16th, 2014 at 12:25 pm

        To buy indulgences.

        • Larry Schmitt October 16th, 2014 at 1:27 pm

          Nope, that’s a catholic thing.

  12. AAASuperPatriot October 15th, 2014 at 10:15 pm

    Literally, almost any current event can be a sign of the End Times.

    It’s the nature of apocalyptic literature.

    • Dwendt44 October 16th, 2014 at 12:24 pm

      And a good fund raiser too.

  13. Bunya October 15th, 2014 at 10:39 pm

    I thought the end times came and went with typhoid fever, then smallpox, the the Cuban missile crisis, then gay marriage, now ebola? I wish God would make up his mind.

    • fahvel October 16th, 2014 at 3:43 am

      oh heck, god’s just playin ya.

    • red-diaper-baby 1942 October 16th, 2014 at 6:59 am

      Bunya, I think that list also includes desegregation, in particular interracial marriage (“miscegenation”, in these people’s code). There are people, including judges, in the deep South who still today describe such marriages ias “ungodly”.
      They construct a deity in their own image: small-minded, ignorant, racist, misogynist etc etc. The only thing Ican say in his/her/its favor, from my personal point of view as a 72-year-old woman, is that being several thousand years old (born in the Bronze Age) it probably isn’t ageist.

  14. tracey marie October 15th, 2014 at 10:45 pm

    New news…..the second nurse broke protocol when she flew(old) but she had a 99.5 degree temp when she got on the flight back to Dallas, whomever she spoke to at the CDC never told her to NOT get on flight.

    • Tammy Minton Haley October 16th, 2014 at 12:01 am

      how do we actually know Patient 2 really did call the CDC before she left Ohio, to return to Texas? i’m not trying to cast aspersions on her asparagus, mind you…but…

      • Dwendt44 October 16th, 2014 at 12:23 pm

        99.5 isn’t really a fever either. It’s the high range of normal.

        • edmeyer_able October 16th, 2014 at 1:44 pm

          But the relevant information is she was a person who had contact with an ebola patient and a colleague had already been diagnosed.

        • Tammy Minton Haley October 16th, 2014 at 8:38 pm

          most health care people would technically call it “low-grade”…it depends on what her “normal” body temp is–but, my point is moot, anyway…
          the CDC has not pushed back against the assertion she called….

  15. edmeyer_able October 15th, 2014 at 10:48 pm

    Isis threatens to weaponize ebola, TSA reminds them to keep carry on ebola to 3.4 oz or less

    • fahvel October 16th, 2014 at 3:42 am

      that’s funny!!

  16. greenfloyd October 16th, 2014 at 2:58 am

    Along with millions of Africans I sure wish Hagee’s Jesus would get off his ass and get down here to kick some Ebola backsides. Nonetheless the “End Times” scenario fits some of the descriptions of the suffering and violence going on in places like the slums of Monrovia, Liberia. Sans divine intervention it’s up to us mere mortals to do something.

  17. fahvel October 16th, 2014 at 3:41 am

    the incurable disease is the one that affects the brains of people like agee and robertson and the rest of the wacked out xians who live on the fringe of any kind of reality.

    • red-diaper-baby 1942 October 16th, 2014 at 6:52 am

      Only if willful ignorance is an “incurable disease”.
      You may actually be right.

  18. Larry Schmitt October 16th, 2014 at 8:47 am

    In ten seconds I found the correct definition of “pestilence.” It’s not what he said. “A contagious or infectious epidemic disease that is virulent and devastating.” Nothing about a cure in the definition. In addition to being just plain wrong, he’s also lazy.

    Doesn’t the Hagee crime family see a new sign of the end times every week? Hurry up and donate, the Hagees need lots of dough for the end of the world.
