    typical left wing bullshit. as if to compare obama's pastor of 20 years with..............mccain's pastor? huh? morons.

    how you can objectively look at the media and not wonder how left slanted it is? are those on the left that blind? are you that dull? if so, you will end up in history's dust bin. in this great country's history, parties have come and gone, your 'party of lies' is next.

    McCain actively sought out his pastors for the religious vote, moron.

    If any party is going into the dustbin, it is your conservative party, Oh, Dull one. What a flatulent response, Yurt.:cuckoo:

    They didn't say "He's guilty," they said "he's been affected by it." That's just an objective observation.

    And the media is VERY conservative. Perhaps Ted Turner thinks he's a liberal, perhaps Hollywood actors and actresses vote Democrat, but the media sends all kinds of nasty value-messages that reinforce the status quo.

    In order today to be the republican nominee one has to swear allegiance to the Church of republicanism and a sort of phony religious piety is a big requirement. This is another example of how he has flip flopped.


    "During this presidential campaign, McCain has shifted positions when it comes to what he religion now considers himself to be. In June 2007, McClatchy reported, "McCain still calls himself an Episcopalian." But as the 2008 South Carolina primary approached, McCain had a convenient-timed change of heart as he appealed to the Palmetto's State's massive evangelical base. In August, as ABC reported, "McCain's campaign staff identified him as 'Episcopalian' in a questionnaire prepared for ABC News' August 5 debate." But by September 2007, McCain announced he had in fact switched teams:

    "It plays a role in my life. By the way, I'm not Episcopalian. I'm Baptist.""

    you still aren't getting it. obama's pastor isn't affecting policy so i don't like it, but i really couldn't give a rats patoot.

    mccain's IS a purely political relationship that HE sought out....and for which he traded policy issues.

    Real simple. Not that difficult to follow.

    Do you mean that there ought to be no separation, or that there's none in practice?

    Of course the part where you say it has affected MCcain's policy is completely conjecture on your part. Whereas Wright's effect on Obama's policies are well documented.
