McCain's religious views

On Feb. 27 Rev. John Hagee, pastor of a Texas megachurch, stood with John McCain and endorsed him over the religious conservatives’ favorite, Mike Huckabee, who was then still in the race. Hagee's widely videoed views say clearly that a Great Whore represents “the Roman Church,” which, in his view, has thirsted for Jewish blood throughout history, from the Crusades to the Holocaust. And so on ad infinitum, of course. Utube of one of his videos here. A detailed story in the NY Times say McCain actively sought out Hagee for approval, and did not repudiate him. Obama, with regard to the Weathermen etc., does not seem to have equivalent affiliations, AFAIK.

IMO: Well if I was a Catholic or a Jew, McCain would not get my vote. In fairness, President Clinton showed a saner almost Republican slant when he allowed Marc Rich back to the USA.
