    If we are going to judge Obama by a pastor he has repudiated, why are we not judging McCain by a pastor that he sought out for support?

    And why are all these preachers so fat? Gluttony is still one of the big sins.

    So why does McCain seek this guys support? :rolleyes:

    for the umpteenth time, McCain is not a member of that church. He has not contributed thousands of dollars to that 'mission.'

    Because he has sway with a block of voters? Too easy.

    If you want to compare pastors, pick the pastor of McCain's church -- the one he attends -- and compare THAT to Obama and Wright. Trying to compare any pastor that supports McCain to Obama's personal pastor is comparing apples-n-oranges.

    If this game must be played, one should also include Alan Cranston, Dennis DeConcini, John Glenn, Donald W. Riegle, and Charles Keating.

    I still think John McCain is a good guy, but so is Barack Obama.

    Ok thanks for that. Seems if memory serves, McCain was given a pass. So why bring them up?

    Actually, he was criticized by the Senate for "questionable conduct."

    As long as we insist on talking about associations without proper context, this is as relevant as Ayers.

    Like the Republican pass on Whitewater?

    The Keating Five scandal led to the failure of the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association:

    "When American Continental Corporation, the parent of Lincoln Savings, went bankrupt in 1989, more than 21,000 mostly elderly investors lost their life savings. This total came to about $285 million, largely because such investors held securities backed by the parent company rather than deposits in the federally insured institution, a distinction apparently lost on many if not most of them until it was too late. The federal government covered almost $3 billion of Lincoln's losses when it seized the institution."

    So Clinton has a deal that cost the investors their money. McCain triggers a Saving and Loan Crisis that cost the taxpayers $3 Billion. The real question is, why don't the people who blew $45 million investigating Clinton care about McCain?
