What are some
of John McCain's other religious beliefs? John McCain continued
about those beliefs:
"We had some incredible
experiences [in the POW cell]. I'll never forget that first Christmas when I...
read from the Nativity story from the different Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and
John. And I looked in that room around and there were guys who had already been
there for seven years and tears were streaming down their face..."
John McCain's story is poignant but the
nativity story is only in
Matthew and Luke
commence when Jesus is already an adult),
so John McCain could not have read the
nativity story in "Mark ... and John" in Vietnam.
More relevantly, John McCain is unlikely to have made this statement if he is
reading his Bible (see New Testament written when?).
John McCain has expressed his beliefs about Islam:
"I admire the Islam.
There's a lot of good principles in it. I think one of the great tragedies of
the 21st century is that these forces of evil have perverted what's basically an
Should a Christian "admire"
a system of beliefs that denies the cross and the
proof of Jesus' resurrection, and call such a system of
beliefs, "honorable"? And speaking of
"perverted," shouldn't the Islam vs. Christianity difference be clearly pointed
out (see Christian God)?
