Fired staffers say McCain was anti-religious.

“’In the end, you came away with the strong sense that they had contempt for the faith-based community,’ says Marlene Elwell, one of those fired staffers. Elwell, a prominent Christian-right activist, was hired by McCain in December 2005 to be national director of his ‘Americans of Faith’ coalition. ‘The way we were being treated it was as if we had leprosy.’” Doesn’t McCain get any credit for being the first out with a press release on Jerry Falwell’s death?
