McCAIN ON FAITH
These words sound a little bit different than those of Jeremiah Wright. While I deplore that Wright suffered discrimination in America, I think it is really instructive the difference in his words and those of McCain. While Wright has given in to bitter, racist hatred, McCain credits his faith with saving his life while in a POW camp in the most brutal of circumstances. One man has continued to love his country and celebrated his faith, while the other uses his faith as a weapon to denigrate and hate his country and his fellow countrymen.
My question, why would Obama continue to turn to this type of man for spiritual guidance? McCain has forgiven his cruel captors, went on with his life and become the hero he is today. Obama would do well to look to McCain for guidance rather than Wright. Talk about bitter.
