Below is a short excerpt from a U.S. News & World Report interview with John Hagee. Seems John Hagee’s idea of Catholic outreach is not evangelism, but rather to convince everyone that he loves Roman Catholics and that Catholics are Christians. From the standing ovation referred to in the article it appears that he is being quite successful in his endeavor. Hagee has already convinced multitudes that the Jewish people do not need to be evangelized. Now it’s the Catholics too.
Who is next?
Why evangelize anyone?

Question: CUFI has recently stepped up outreach to Catholics. What precipitated that , and how is the effort going so far? What are your goals for that outreach?
Hagee’s answer: Yes, we are reaching out to Catholics. These efforts started last year, during the presidential campaign, when Bill Donahue of the Catholic League claimed that I had slighted the Catholic Church while teaching from the Book of Revelation. He was mistaken on this point. But he and I handled this disagreement the way that Christians should. We met. We had fellowship. We learned from one another. A few months after the controversy, he came to our Washington, D.C., Summit as my guest. When I recognized him during my keynote address, he received a rousing ovation from our CUFI audience. I consider him a friend.
Bill and I decided that we should turn our personal reconciliation into a broader reconciliation. We decided to try to bring Catholics and Protestants together on behalf of Israel. Some of Israel’s best friends and strongest defenders are devout Catholics. They should be a part of this movement.”
