Despite that last statistic, 11th-hour campaigning from both
the Republican and Democratic parties indicates just how hazy the line between
politics and faith really is. Though both the McCain and Obama campaigns say
they've been careful not to compromise regulations placed on churches, both
launched church-targeted initiatives on Sunday across the nation. Volunteers for
the McCain campaign included thousands of church members distributing literature
and calling fellow churchgoers to urge them to vote. Obama's initiative included
distributing a "nonpartisan letter" from the Illinois senator to black churches
in battleground states and urging members of those churches to read the letter
during worship services. [AP, 11/2/08]
