WARNING: Socialist tripe alert. The following quote does not represent the views of this website, or it's owner:
Ron Susukind of the New York Times writes: "The nation's founders, smarting still from the punitive pieties of Europe's state religions, were adamant about erecting a wall between organized religion and political authority. But suddenly, that seems like a long time ago. George W. Bush -- both captive and creator of this moment -- has steadily, inexorably, changed the office itself. He has created the faith-based presidency."
This supposedly insightful revealing article (propogandist rant) depicts Bush as some sort of cultist nutcase, and depicts our founding fathers as being abhorrent of religious influence in our political system. But nothing is futher from the truth. Our founding fathers knew the importance of a Christian people filling our public offices. NYT totally distorts the original intent of the 1st Ammendment. There's a reason why we have legal precident, and the Courts in 1942 ignored nearly 150 years of it. Now the libs are trying to rewrite our history to fit their motives.
I read the first couple pages of the article and the "stories" they cite seem to boil down to hearsay. And given how they've proven themselves to lie about history to further a myth, I wouldn't give any more of my time tonight to finish this 10 page diatribe against Bush.
