Sen. John McCain said in an interview published Saturday that he would prefer a Christian president over someone of a different faith, calling it "an important part of our qualifications to lead."*
"I just have to say in all candor that since this nation was founded primarily on Christian principles ... personally, I prefer someone who I know who has a solid grounding in my faith," McCain said.
Yes, perhaps someone who has a better grasp of the whole "thou shalt not kill" thing than the pack of idiots who keep sending people off to die in Iraq for no fucking reason. Or someone who supports universal health care and opposes torture.
Come to think of it, a real Christian -- a real love-thy-neighbor, feed the poor, heal the sick, judge-not-lest-ye-etc. leader -- in office might be a good idea. Too bad there are so few of them, and not a one to be found in the Republican candidate pool.
*Has McCain ever actually seen the Constitution?
