this is wrong in so many ways!

McCain thinks this is a 'Christian nation'.

"I just have to say in all candor that since this nation was founded primarily on Christian principles, personally, I prefer someone who has a grounding in my faith," the GOP presidential hopeful told the Web site in an interview published Saturday.

Can this possibly be more factually inaccurate? Where in the Constitution is there a SINGLE Christian principle? Seriously. Show me one.

"In the interview he also observed that the values protected by the Constitution, by which he meant values such as respect for human life and dignity, are rooted in the Judeo-Christian tradition. That is all he intended to say to the question, America is a Christian nation, and it is hardly a controversial claim."

Um, huh?

Controversial? It's factually WRONG!!!
