2. This could be why we're seeing unprecedented religous interference...
.. it makes sense. I have never seen so much church/state incest in my life. Bush is a madman. He's purely insane. He was safer when he beleived that God called him to be Baseball Commissioner. Could he REALLY believe all this stuff??

3. This is from the End Times Network reference:
Edited on Sun Apr-18-04 09:39 PM by Ilsa
But there is nowhere in the so-called "public record" or in any of the personal ruminations of his friends and colleagues of any "acknowledgment of sin," or that he (Bush) was a sinner in need of a savior? Sheehy says:

"His conversion certainly didn't come about as a result of contemplating past sins. He proudly rejects introspection and has no interest in looking back over the 'youthful indiscretions' that characterized his first 44 years. In interviews Bush repeatedly says: 'I'm not one of those people who say, Gosh, if I'd have done it differently, I'd have ...' He pauses for a few seconds to contemplate his life, then confidently concludes: 'I can't think of anything I'd do differently'."

Sound familiar?

They also relate a story where he was supposed to attend a religious conference and he kept making snide remarks during the lessons, and would set his watch alarm to go off in the middle of the speaker's presentations because he knew he didn't have the attention span for it.
