Obama V. McCain at Saddleback Church
I couldn't watch the forum at Rick Warren's Saddleback church with Obama and McCain pandering to the Christianists. I'm tired of hearing Democrats and Republicans try to appeal to religious bigotry by emphasizing that marriage is only for heterosexuals, and I'm tired of hearing the same meme on abortion and other social issues.
You can read more about the forum and McCain and Obama's answers to questions about marriage and abortion on other progressive blogs. Start here at Towleroad
I wish someone would ask these candidates if they will defend he separation of church and state and keep their religious views out of public policy!
