From Wall Street Journal Article

Susan Davis reports on the presidential race.On Thursday John McCain welcomed the endorsement of John Hagee, but a day later the Arizona senator sought to maintain some distance from the evangelical leader after the Catholic League and the Democratic National Committee called on McCain to denounce his support, citing controversial remarks Hagee has made in the past on a variety of subjects.“Yesterday, Pastor John Hagee endorsed my candidacy for president in San Antonio, Texas. However, in no way did I intend for his endorsement to suggest that I in turn agree with all of Pastor Hagee’s views, which I obviously do not,” McCain said today in a statement, “I am hopeful that Catholics, Protestants and all people of faith who share my vision for the future of America will respond to our message of defending innocent life, traditional marriage, and compassion for the most vulnerable in our society.”

Catholic League President Bill Donohue released a statement Thursday entitled “McCain Embraces Bigot” and accused Hagee of a decades long “unrelenting war against the Catholic Church.”

The DNC also issued a statement today asking “So which Hagee positions does John McCain endorse?” and includes a list of derogatory statements Hagee has made in the past involving Catholics, women, and Muslims, among others.

The dust up is emblematic of the uneasy relationship between McCain and the evangelical community. Evangelical voters have trended away from the Arizona senator in the Republican primary contests in favor of Mike Huckabee. The former Arkansas governor, an ordained Southern Baptist minister, told MSNBC that he was “shocked and disappointed” by Hagee’s endorsement.
