Where Will He Guide Him?

On the Mother Jones website, writer David Corn writes an article about how Sen. John McCain has accepted an endorsement from Columbus, Ohio Reverend Rod Parsley.  McCain called Parsley his “spiritual adviser”.  Parsley has been known to be anti-islamic.

“In a chapter titled “Islam: The Deception of Allah,” Parsley warns there is a “war between Islam and Christian civilization.” He continues:

I cannot tell you how important it is that we understand the true nature of Islam, that we see it for what it really is. In fact, I will tell you this: I do not believe our country can truly fulfill its divine purpose until we understand our historical conflict with Islam. I know that this statement sounds extreme, but I do not shrink from its implications. The fact is that America was founded, in part, with the intention of seeing this false religion destroyed, and I believe September 11, 2001, was a generational call to arms that we can no longer ignore.”

Writer Corn also noted that in the 2000 election McCain called Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell agents of intolerence but has now taken back the remark.
