How wonderful to be able to lay these charges at Christianity's door. What more evidence could you possible want for keeping God out of politics? Ok... Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, the Middle East generally, Northern Ireland, and Bosnia... but apart from that?
How frustrating, then, to learn that Bush is not the rigid, fanatical, Darwin-trashing, Bible-bashing fundamentalist we had all assumed. Apparently, he is not convinced that God wanted him to be president. He believes "there is an almighty that is broad and big enough and loving enough that can encompass a lot of people" (rather than just conservative evangelical Americans). God did not tell him to go to war in Iraq but, rather, he based his decision "upon the need to protect the American people from harm". He does not think evolution and the Christian faith are incompatible.
