Pastor Hagee: Atheists Who Don't Like Hearing 'Merry Christmas' Can Get Out Of The Country

Given all of the other crazy things that have come out of this guy's mouth, these recent remarks by wingnut Pastor John Hagee shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

From our friends at Right Wing Watch: Hagee: People Who Don't Like Hearing 'Merry Christmas' Should Leave The Country:

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":
