Cornerstone Church Pastor John Hagee Saying God Made Lesbians ‘Flat’ Chested Is Fake News
By Shawn Rice
John Hagee, the founder of Cornerstone Church, stating that the relative bust size of gay women was a fake quote attributed to him. Hagee, who is also the CEO of his non-profit corporation, Global Evangelism Television, did not say that “God made all lesbians flat” so they can be identified by “normal people.” Rather, this was a fake quote.
Where did the fake quote originate? On Aug. 11, 2016, the web site Newslo.com published an article reporting that Hagee discussed the average bust size of lesbian women.
In an interview with Breitbart News, the televangelist argued that lesbians are “the scourge of the earth,” and that “God hates them so much that he’s made sure normal people can tell them apart from normal women.” Asked to elaborate, he went on about how some of their physical characteristics differ from those of normal, straight women. “In his infinite wisdom, God made sure that we are able to tell them apart from the diseased so that we may protect ourselves and our children from them. That’s why most lesbians are as flat as an ironing board,” he opined.
However, Snopes reported that these are not real quotes from Hagee. Newslo.com is a “hybrid” web site that publishes articles containing a mixture of factual and fictional information. To further clear things up, the web site displays two buttons near the top of its “hybrid” articles allowing readers to either “show” or “hide” the facts:

Here are some examples of people sharing the fake quote on social media.

In this particular case, the “show facts” button highlighted the first paragraph of the article, which contains a legitimate quote from Hagee about “counterfeit Christians” who endorse the “homosexual lifestyle,” originally said during an August 2014 sermon:
“Those of you who got on national television and endorsed homosexual lifestyle because the president did so, you are a counterfeit Christian, you are a moral coward, you are a hireling shepherd,” Hagee said, condemning the increasing Go to the full article.
