In Church, McCain Unwittingly Becomes Part of Sermon

(CBS)
From CBS News' John Bentley:

(PHOENIX) – Seeing yourself talk about the break-up of your marriage on the big screen is probably not what John McCain expected when he went to church this morning.

But that's exactly what happened at the North Phoenix Baptist Church today, when Pastor Dan Yeary played a clip from Rick Warren's interview with McCain last weekend where he asked him what his "greatest moral failing" was.

"The failure of my first marriage," McCain told Warren. "It's my greatest moral failure."

McCain and his wife Cindy both looked visibly uncomfortable during the presentation, which was played on big screens in the sanctuary where about 1,000 people had gathered for the service. Yeary also played Barack Obama's answer, where he talked about experimenting with drugs and drinking when he was a teenager.

Yeary's point was that everyone has moral failings and that it took courage for both presidential candidates to admit to them on national TV.
