American Idol(atry): McCain-as-Jesus

May 27, 2008

Religion Dispatches ran my latest column today. It is entitled "American Idol(atry): McCain-as-Jesus" and critiques some blasphemous comments made recently by the head of the Georgia Republican Party. She stated:

John McCain is kind of like Jesus Christ on the cross. He never denounced God, either.
In the piece I focus on the problem of making America out to be God.
