TAP's own Sarah Posner was writing about John Hagee and Rod Parsley long before the evangelical ministers stepped into the spotlight this week with their endorsements of John McCain. Check out these profiles from our archives:

With God On His Side
Sarah Posner | October 23, 2005

Texan John Hagee has a huge following, the ear of the White House -- and a theory that an invasion of Iran was foretold in the Book of Esther.

Posner has been chronicling the activities of Hagee, Parsley, and their ilk in her weekly FundamentaList column. And there's much more in her new book, God's Profits: Faith, Fraud, and the Republican Crusade for Values Voters.
