Presidential nominee John McCain: America established as a Christian nation
Delusional, or pandering to the religious? Here are some of the claims McCain made:
On the formation of the US:
The Constitution established the United States of America as a Christian nation.
On criteria for choosing a president:
I think the #1 issue … the people should make a selection on the President of the United States is will the person carry on in the Judeo Christian tradition that has made this nation the greatest experiment in the history of mankind.
On having chosen the correct religion:
I just feel that my faith is probably of better spiritual guidance. I just feel that that’s an important part of our qualifications to lead.
On those of other faiths living in America:
We welcome the poor, the tired, the huddled masses – but when they come here, they know that they are in a nation founded on Christian principles.
As a religious organization, the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster has no opinion on political matters. That John McCain is clearly a douche is only the opinion of the author of this post, Bobby Henderson.
