McCain's voting preferences

Several Jewish organizations criticized John McCain on Monday after the Republican candidate said he would prefer a Christian president over someone of a different faith.


The American Jewish Committee, an international think tank and advocacy organization based in New York, issued a statement criticizing the Arizona senator, arguing that McCain should know that the United States is a democratic society without a religious test for public office.

Yikes. McCain wasn't arguing for a "religious test for public office". He was expressing a personal preference. And, last I checked, a voter could apply whatever "test" he wants to when considering whom to vote for.

And is this Jewish organization going on record as saying they wouldn't prefer a Jewish president? It's unbelievable the nit-picking politicians are put through these days.
