Senator McCain's Catholic Cabinet

Equal time for Senator McCain! After a plea to our readers to provide "In All Things" with a list of the Republican Senator’s Catholic Advisors, a kindly soul pointed us to this link. "McCain’s Catholics" We would list all the personages, as we did below with Senator Obama, but Mr. McCain’s list is considerably longer. Does that mean that he has more Catholic friends? Now we await word of Senator Clinton’s Catholic group. James Martin, SJ

The existence of such a web site is both expected and disappointing. I can only guess what web pages from various faith groups may look like -- though few might welcome a "Wiccans for..." site. While this is not the same as a specific hierarchical endorsement, I hate the shape of what to come in this contest that will continue to use faith traditions for their own purposes.
