And Speaking of Christians...

Do I think faith will be an important part of being a good president? Yes, I do.

George W. Bush, 6 December 99

I've heard the call. I believe God wants me to run for president.

George W. Bush, September '00

Our priorities is our faith.

George W. Bush, 10 October '00

God told me to strike at al Qaida and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East. If you help me I will act, and if not, the elections will come and I will have to focus on them.

George W. Bush, 27 June 03

But wait...
The Scriptures say, what does it profit, my brother, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? ... When we look at what is happening in America today, where are the works of compassion?

John F. Kerry, 28 March 04

[Kerry's comment] was beyond the bounds of acceptable discourse and a sad exploitation of Scripture for a political attack.

Steve Schmidt, Bush campaign spokesman, 28 March 04

Mm-hmmmm.
Tyrants and dictators will accept no other gods before them. They require disobedience to the First Commandment. They seek absolute control and are threatened by faith in God. They fear only the power they cannot possess -- the power of truth. So they resent the living example of the devout, especially the devotion of a unique people chosen by God.

George W. Bush, 19 April 01


Well said, George. At last, something we can agree on.
