I'm not agreeing with the preacher in any way. My point in all this was simply to point out that this "hateful" preacher isn't much different than the "not hateful" ones.
His view on Catholics might be a bit extreme, but I am talking about his basic message: If you don't believe in Jesus as savior, etc., you are going to hell. This is mainstream, traditional Christian belief. But it generally isn't criticized unless someone is caught on tape or actually quoted as saying, "Jews are going to hell." Then, it becomes a mini-controversy. But in fact, it is essentially said every Sunday morning across the country.
