McCain = Jesus, USA = God

'I meant John McAmerica, not John McChrist.'
Georgia Republican Party chairwoman Sue Everhart said Saturday that the party's presumed presidential nominee has a lot in common with Jesus Christ.

"John McCain is kind of like Jesus Christ on the cross," Everhart said as she began the second day of the state GOP convention. "He never denounced God, either."

Everhart was praising McCain for never denouncing the United States while he was being tortured as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

"I'm not trying to compare John McCain to Jesus Christ, I'm looking at the pain that was there," she said.
Because saying someone is "kind of like" someone else is not a comparison. Or at least, not an attempt at comparison. Got it.
And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of the Lord, shall be put to death. — Leviticus 24:16
However, it's the other comparison that the self-described "jealous God" YHWH might have a small problem with. Aren't Republicans the ones who want the Ten Commandments plastered everywhere? That's so they can familiarize their own selves with them, apparently.

It's a Republican thing. They like the Bible, they just don't read it.

"Father forgive them for they know not what they do."

"I hated the gooks. I will hate them as long as I live."

I dunno man, the resemblance is pretty uncanny.
