Some Evangelicals Don't Want to be 'Stuck' Again

Even though about 100 evangelicals met last week in Denver to discuss supporting Sen. John McCain, some of them are just as anxious not to be caught with another candidate like him, according to Dan Gilgoff at God-O-Meter.

Denver meeting's organizer, Mathew Staver, chairman of Liberty Counsel and dean of Liberty University School of Law told Gilgoff that much of the Denver meeting was focused on building a long-term strategy for the Christian Right to avoid getting stuck with another someone like McCain, a candidate which some evangelicals have found wanting.

"When you compare McCain to Obama, there's no choice... [McCain] might not represent everything you want in a candidate, but Obama would decimate our values," Staver told Gilgoff. "There's definitely a concern among evangelicals that [Obama]] might see some come to his side because of his rhetoric of change."
