McCain Casts Muslims as Less Fit to Lead

By Stephen Labaton Senator John McCain said in an interview posted on the Internet on Saturday that the Constitution established the United States as a Christian nation and that his faith is probably of better spiritual guidance than that of a Muslim candidate for president. I just have to say in all candor that since this nation was founded primarily on Christian principles, that’s a decision the American people would have to make, but personally, I prefer someone who I know who has a solid grounding in my faith, Mr. McCain said in response to a question about the possibility of a Muslim’s running for president.
