McCain's "Spiritual Guide": America was "Founded, in Part, to See Islam Destroyed"

Barack Obama's image has been tarnished by his past association with Rev. Wright, although he's since distanced himself from Wright (interestingly, despite the publicity over this many still believe Obama to be a Muslim). It turns out that John McCain has a similar problem, with the pastor he has called his "spiritual guide."

During a 2005 sermon, Reverend Rod Parsley called Islam "the greatest religious enemy of our civilization and the world," claiming that America was "founded in part with the intention of seeing this false religion destroyed."

According to Mother Jones, the sermon:
reiterates and amplifies harsh and derogatory comments about Islam he made in his book, Silent No More, published the same year he delivered these remarks.
The sermon is currently sold by Parsley's megachurch.

Islam "should" not be destroyed - it will be destroyed just as every other prophecy has come true thus far in the Holy Bible. Islam will be destroyed along side every other false god/religion satan himself has established since the day God tossed him out of heaven down to his earthly kingdom.

It's not to late to accept Jesus Christ as Lord. Every false religion will be destroyed on the day that every knee bows and every tounge confesses that Jesus Christ the Living Son of God is Lord!

Jeez, I'd hope the guy before me chose the right religion. I mean, shit, imagine if it turns out his god is false since almost every other religion makes the same claim. Damn, wouldn't that suck to be him.

Anyway, religion shouldn't have any bearing on the candidate you choose unless the candidate himself/herself is slandering other religions because his/her ancient book says so.

I am stunned that a man who preaches so much hate would be used to advance a candidate's campaign. I heard no truths about Islams from this man, who clearly does not know anything about Islam other than the biased "information" the media tends to spew out.
