McCain's faith as a POW in Vietnam

Check out this story about John McCain:
Sen. John McCain, who is known for his reticence and even discomfort invoking faith on the campaign trail, was once dubbed a "Hell's Angel" for rioting against his captors in Vietnam in order to hold Sunday church services.
There's a lot more detail in the stories, including a summary of McCain's first lesson as the group's unofficial chaplain and a description of a Christmas service he organized. It's a pretty moving story. I think it's an interesting read partly because McCain doesn't talk about his faith as openly as some other candidates in the recent past, but stories like this do suggest that his Christian faith is an important part of his character.
