From an article at Fox News election coverage, the following:
“Televangelist John Hagee, one of John McCain’s highest-profile supporters from the religious right, has apologized for calling the Roman Catholic Church “the great whore” and “the apostate church.”

In a letter Monday to Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Civil and Religious Rights, Hagee wrote, “I want to express my deep regret for any comments that Catholics have found hurtful.”
Hurtful? Hurtful? No, you ignorant buffoon, I found them insulting and infuriating, both a failure of logic and of intelligence. And I found your apology to be both insincere and politically motivated. You know you don’t mean one word of your apology. Vicious words such as the ones you uttered are not just some off the cuff example of “misspeaking” but rather a manifestation of a soul-deep bias.

The Catholic Church was been around for over 2,000 years. In that time, many John Hagee types have come - - and gone - - while the Catholic Church endures. And as a Catholic, I am insulted and offended and no, I do not accept your apology because it is insufficient and insincere and because some trifling apology does not take away in the slightest the illumination of your rather pathetic soul resulting from your ill-considered and stupid words. Pastor Hagee, the only thing you regret is that you were caught spouting your stupidities. Shame on you.
