McCain-Palin use religion as political litmus test

Today, a disturbing video captured Saturday at a McCain-Palin rally surfaced and it shows just how divisive, deceptive and despicable McCain's campaign has become. Along with race baiting, name calling and terrorist finger pointing, the McCain campaign is now invoking religion as a political litmus test against Barack Obama.

Obama, who is a Christian, has been portrayed as foreign, different and not like "us" by McCain and his flunkies. On Saturday, a crazy evangelical preacher named Rev. Arnold Conrad took a giant leap of insanity forward by saying that other people around the world are praying to "their" God that Obama would win and that our God [i.e. America's God] would have to save his reputation to make sure that didn't happen. Listen to this nut case:

"Reverend" Conrad's ranting goes beyond just vilifying Obama. It basically says to Christians in America that the God we worship needs to protect us from Obama winning the White House. This is deeply disturbing on so many levels it's tough to know where to start. Suffice it to say, mixing religion and politics is McCain's last desperate hope to literally instill the fear of God in people so they will vote for him.
