McCain and Conspiracy Theorists Agree that Washington is Satanic

BoingBoing's Mark Frauenfelder writes:Dan Morse of The Washington Post looks for evidence to support McCain's frequent claims that Washington is the "city of Satan."First, McCain:McCain, a Republican senator from Arizona, has regularly called Washington Satan's City over the past 10 years. He did so twice last month, including during a visit to the Atlanta headquarters of Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain whose founder is such a devoted Baptist he keeps the eateries closed on Sundays. "It's harder and harder trying to do the Lord's work in the city of Satan," McCain said, according to an Associated Press account.Next, Cutting Edge Ministries director David Bay:"McCain was right," said David Bay, speaking by phone from Lexington, S.C., where as director of Cutting Edge Ministries he has long asserted that Washington's streets are positioned to usher in Lucifer as "the ultimate master of Government Center."
