Pastor John Hagee's CUFI Church Association Filed to Collect Up to $1M in Federal PPP Funds

Pastor John Hagee of Cornerstone Church may not like the government telling him when he can reopen his 1,300-pupil private school or giving handouts to his flock.

But, apparently, he doesn't mind asking Uncle Sam for cash to keep his political objectives in play.

In April, Hagee's CUFI Church Association, the nonprofit arm of his powerful pro-Israel lobbying apparatus, received a loan valued at $350,000-1 million through the federal Paycheck Protection Program, according to a Washington Post analysis of U.S. Small Business Administration records.

CUFI Church Association, listed in SBA records as a religious organization, said it would use the money to protect 51 jobs. The PPP program, approved by Congress during the pandemic, was largely intended to help small businesses avoid layoffs.

Hagee's group sought the funds despite the televangelist's long record of preaching that God-fearing Christians need to provide for themselves, not seek government assistance.
