Bush prayer event on cable, satellite TV
WASHINGTON -- President Bush's participation in a National Day of Prayer ceremony with evangelical Christian leaders at the White House will be shown Thursday night, for the first time in prime-time viewing hours, on Christian cable and satellite TV outlets nationwide. For the president, the broadcast is an opportunity to address a sympathetic evangelical audience without the risk of alienating secular or non-Christian viewers, since it will not be carried in full by any of the major television networks. Frank Wright, president of the National Association of Religious Broadcasters, said more than a million evangelicals are expected to see the broadcast.

1. how can they be this deluded?
"not alienate secular viewers?" News flash: it alienates the crap out of me, and I bet plenty of other secular citizens.

Does anybody understand the difference between "democracy" and "theocracy"?
