Poor sourcing[edit]

I think we should remove a large portion, possibly most, of what's in "Life and career" section. We rely on NNDB, which is highly unreliable, as it's a tertiary source, which doesn't state where it gets it's information. We also rely on johnhageefamily.com, which has an inherent bias, and support self-serving claims. We shouldn't delve into details of his personal/early life, unless/until we solid third party sources. --Rob (talk) 05:01, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Vandalism that stood for almost two years[edit]

Does anyone else find it disturbing that this edit took nearly two years to be reverted? That got to be some kind of record. JayHubie (talk) 04:12, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Other than that it broke a link, and wasn't directly cited by a usable reliable source, I'd say it was so unsurprising content as to pretty much pass as "fair comment". 84.203.46.247 (talk) 16:48, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Trinity Church[edit]

This article makes at least two references to Trinity Church as if it was something important and unambiguous. There are no links to this church. Shouldn't the article state its relevance?WithGLEE (talk) 17:27, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

John Hagee's adultery and divorce[edit]

I'm not sure why John Hagee's bio omits his adultery, divorce and marriage to his paramour and how Mr. Hagee explains from a Biblical standpoint his right to remarry. Paul 3/13/13 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.88.47.114 (talkcontribs) 11:46, 13 March 2013‎ (UTC)

Spend some time here and note that he's pro Israel. Also spend some time looking at how Wikipedia deals with people who are anti Israel. Then you'll be sure...109.154.115.55 (talk) 16:41, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

Why is it notable that Hagee disagrees with other religions?[edit]

I’m struggling to understand why there are large sections of this article that "accuse" Hagee of opposing other religions. Like that is somehow unusual or scandalous, for a religious person to believe their religion is correct and other faiths have got it wrong?
Hagee is certainly anti-Catholic, anti-Islam, anti-Buddhism, anti-Sikhism, anti-Mormonism, and so on. That is implicit in the very fact that he is a protestant Christian. Therefore I think these sections should be removed. Hagee may be the subject of controversy, but surely not simply because he disagrees with other religions! — Grand Dizzy (talk) 22:36, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Overall Comments[edit]

Looks like this might need a good bit of work, but placing under review. Winner 42 Talk to me! 03:29, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

  • 12 dead links are present
  • No dab links or copyvio

Sectional Analysis[edit]

  • Lead
    • Ref 2 is tagged as supporting information not in its citation
    • This lead has some WP:Lead issues in that it does not properly summarize the article. It contains unimportant information about where he is broadcast that reads somewhat advert like rather than the main points of information found in the sections below.
  • Life and career
    • Birth date show be here with a citation
    • Is www.nndb.com a reliable source of information or could better sourcing be found?
    • south of Dallas Somewhat unnecessary considering a wikilink is present.
    • Did he attend high school? It is not listed here.
    • This wording of immorality needs serious assessment, what immorality was committed here? The source is dead, but Google seems to suggest cheating on his spouse, if this can be reliably sourced, it can be included in the article because it is not a BLP violation.
    • The sentence beginning with He subsequently divorced needs rewording for grammar.
    • Article does not mention him beginning his preaching career in '58.
    • The paragraph beginning with Hagee founded The Church needs a non-primary source to support its claims.
    • Hagee has written more than 30 best-selling books (several titles selling more than a million copies and hitting the New York Times Best Seller's list) and is a Southern Gospel recording artist.[15] He, Matthew, Christina, and Sandy often travel together as "The Hagees". Statement is promotional and completely unsupported by reliable sources.
    • On his telecast of December 14, 2008, Hagee disclosed to the audience that he had recently undergone successful heart bypass surgery. Borderline BLP violation.
  • Personal beliefs
    • This section flows poorly and is a mess of individual sentences thrown together with borderline BLP violations thrown in for good measure.
    • Because the land now known as Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank was ruled by the Ottoman Turks prior to World War I, then controlled by the British, and later partitioned under United Nations mandate, Hagee argues that the land does not belong to the Palestinian people, and that the name "Palestine" (deriving from that of the ancient Philistines) was imposed by the Roman Emperor Hadrian to punish the Jews for their revolt against the Roman Empire. Hagee has commented that there is no Palestinian language and no historic Palestinian nation. is completely unsourced.
    • http://www.dissidentvoice.org/Apr06/Berkowitz18.htm is unreliable
    • jpost seems unreliable for anything accept cited criticism
    • How is this section different than controversial views?
  • Relationship with Israel
    • Why does this have its own section?
  • Controversial views
    • This seems to be a giant wall of WP:UNDUE weight, especially in a BLP.
    • This section needs much stronger sourcing to support the statements given in it.
  • Political activities
    • This section seems incomplete given the other information presented in the other sections of this article.

Closing comment[edit]

With Winner 42 having retired from Wikipedia, I posted to CookieMonster755's talk page, noting the retirement, and asking whether we should find a new reviewer. CookieMonster755 has decided, however, not to pursue the GA nomination further, so I am closing the nomination as unsuccessful. CookieMonster755, we hope you will consider renominating once you have addressed the issues noted above. Thanks, and sorry it didn't work out this time.

United Nations vs. League of Nations[edit]

This sentence contains errors that beg correction:

"Because the land now known as Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank was ruled by the Ottoman Turks prior to World War I, then controlled by the British, and later partitioned under United Nations mandate . . . "

First, there was never a United Nations mandate for Palestine. It was a League of Nations mandate, entrusted to the British, after the British expelled the Ottoman Turks. Second, the UN did not actually partition Palestine. The UN General Assembly, representing the international organization that formally succeeded the League of Nations, voted to partition the territory, but UN General Assembly decisions are mere recommendations, not binding law. (See the text of the partition resolution itself.)

That being the case the sentence should be corrected to read "the UN General Assembly voted on November 29, 1947 to recommend the partition Palestine following Britain's decision to return its mandate and withdraw from the country."

Vague, tired, implausible, unsourced puff[edit]

... including 62 high-power stations aired to more than 150 million households.

I could only find other sources which probably lifted the same line from Wikipedia, or the organization's own publicity organ (which I could not find).

What does "aired to" even mean? I don't think there's 150 million households left in America capable of receiving 'aerial' signals. What TV has that any more? Or do you mean "households capable of having an aerial, if they were so inclined". No? So then I take it you mean various cable networks? Then what is this noise about "high-power" stations. Transmission power? All-star morning hosts? Direct line to the big guy, above? Even if that boast was once true (in some dimension), it's probably due for a 2017 reality check, proximal era: cord cutters. — MaxEnt 21:54, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

Agreed. If there isn't a reliable secondary source, get rid of it. Freikorp (talk) 01:04, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
