AIKEN, S.C. (AP) â Republican presidential candidate John McCain said Monday that questions over whether he identifies himself as a Baptist or an Episcopalian are not as important as his overarching faith. âThe most important thing is that I am a Christian,â the Arizona senator told reporters following two campaign stops in this early voting state.
I donât care whether Republican presidential candidate John McCain is an Episcopalian or a Baptist.
But the implication in Mondayâs paper that heâd been caught at something â outed while trying to pass as an Episcopalian â hit a nerve.
Why do we diss Baptists?
Powellâs story is one of church social rankings, avoiding the term âBaptistâ and whether oneâs church parking lot is filled with âMercedes and BMWsâ or âFords and Chevys.â
