Overview

More than any other world leader in recent times, George W. Bush is a man of deep faith. He is a conservative Christian who has sought God's will and witnessed the power of prayer in his personal life and even in the Oval Office. His faith has proven to be a bedrock of strength and resolve during two of the most tumultuous years in our nation's history. According to Newsweek magazine, "this presidency is the most resolutely faith-based in modern times. An enterprise founded, supported and guided by trust in the temporal and spiritual power of God."

Laugh out loud funny!!

Written by Gregg Newby from Memphis, TN on November 23rd, 2005

  • Book Rating: 1/5

The notion that G. W. Bush actually believes any of the religious tripe he spouts off is just laugh-out-loud funny. The truth is that this insincere demagogue knows the power of closed-minded religiosity, and uses it to justify his agenda to rednecks and simpletons. There is absolutely no way that W could even remotely believe that God is the originator of the human life he is so eager to destroy in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. Bush's followers comprise an Army of drooling dogs, who eagerly run where they are pointed. To a large degree, they are intellectually limited because dogmatic Christianity has rendered them so. All Bush is doing is tapping into that mind-control mechanism, the same way that Stalin tapped into the language of Marx to cement his own rise to power. Any notion that Bush even remotely cares for the well-being of his fellow man, the way that Christ actually commanded, is so trenchantly absurd that only the most gullible of fools will buy it.
