Pastor John Hagee, Founder and National Chairman of Christians United For Israel (CUFI), joined Glenn on radio Friday to talk about his upcoming project with the Military Warrior Support Foundation.
"This is the most maligned guy I think I've ever met. He is nothing like the press presents him as. Nothing like you read about online. He is kind, funny, considerate, brave and that's not his image," Glenn said, introducing Pastor Hagee.
This September, Pastor Hagee will be giving away homes to Gold Star Families and wounded warrior families at the American Gospel Celebration in Kentucky.
"We started this program years ago with Lieutenant General Leroy Sisco," Pastor Hagee said. "It's a celebration of faith and freedom, but we're honoring military veterans each night of this event by presenting them a brand-new home to a special military family that has served the United States of America."
Glenn also took the opportunity to ask Pastor Hagee about the moral fiber of America and whether the truth matters anymore.
"I think the people are just in a state of shock and disgust with all the continual scandals. I think we have an exhaustion with scandals that have come down the road --- so many, so much. They get away with it. They deny it. They only admit the truth when they're absolutely trapped," Pastor Hagee said.
Pastor Hagee also stressed the need to stay rooted in the Bible, our families and constitutional principles --- which will be on full display at the American Gospel Celebration.
"This is going to be an effort to bring healing. And the body, the soul and the spirit of America could use some healing right now. We can't agree on everything, but we can come together as God's people and renew our faith and refuse in God himself, and have a unified prayer for this nation to survive," Pastor Hagee said.
The American Gospel Celebration takes place September 1-3 at Freedom Hall in Louisville, Kentucky.
"I'm trying to find a way to get there, but I'm a kind of divisive figure right now. I don't mean to be, but I always am. I'm kind of a divisive figure right now. I know you're trying to bring people together. Would it be a bad thing if I came?" Glenn asked.
"Absolutely not. We've got to get away from this division concept that you can't bring him because he's controversial. You know, I lived under that banner for a long time. When I started doing events for the nation of Israel, I got blasted from both sides for a while because the Jewish people didn't trust me and the Christians said you betrayed us," Pastor Hagee said. "So I'm just saying that, absolutely, Glenn, we'd be glad to have you. We welcome every American that's for America. We welcome everyone that's looking for an opportunity to bring our nation closer to the Lord."
