John McCain likes to tell his wacko Christian-right friends that the United States is a Christian country, founded on Christian values, blah, blah, blah.
John McCain has fallen all over himself to kiss the asses of the Christian right poohbahs, even though a number of them really don't like him very much, but will vote for him because they like black, liberal, Democrats even less.
Pastordan at streetprophets.com notes that on Monday, August 11, John "Surely MacCaine" made a statement about the "problem" in Georgia, which included the following:
"Georgia is an ancient country, at the crossroads of Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and one of the world's first nations to adopt Christianity as an official religion."
Pastordan asks, rightly, "since when did adopting 'Christianity as an official religion' become a point of high praise from a American president candidate?"
The answer to which is since John McCain, who would sell his mother (he's already sold his soul) to gain the White House, began his unprincipled, unbridled and devious campaign designed to fool enough Americans to get him elected in November.
It's rather interesting to note that many theologians and religious historians believe that Christianity began to go to hell when the emporer, Constantine, made it the "official" religion of the Roman Empire!
