Evangelicals “Shocked” That Bush Faked Bible Belief
By James Donahue
If there is one thing that members of “fundamental”
evangelical Christian churches must never admit aloud, it is disbelief in the literal truth of the Word of God. That book
is the rock on which the church exists.
Church leaders skillfully use every word,
every phrase and every chapter to prove their faith in the deity of Jesus and their version of world history. By insisting
that every word in the Bible is an “inspired” text sent directly from the Creator to the minds and pens of the
writers of the books within the Book, they use this document to shut their minds to reality.
We were not surprised when President George
W. Bush admitted in an appearance on ABC’s Nightline that he believes the Bible is “probably not” literally
true.” The statement left evangelical leaders across the nation in a state of shock and dismay. After all, they helped
ride the wave that put Bush into office in 2000 and again in 2004 because they believed Bush’s story that he was a “born-again”
believer in the faith. Thus they believed it when the fool they put in office told them God directed him to attack Iraq.
Now that Mr. Bush has been exposed as a liar
about his reasons for ordering the assault on that innocent nation, and he and Vice-President Dick Cheney have been breaking
national and international laws regularly from behind closed doors at the White House, why should anybody be surprised that
Bush also lied about his faith? As it has turned out, Bush has proven himself to have been consistent in his behavior. His
entire administration has been founded on lies.
Strangely, in his last-ditch effort to use
a team headed by his old buddy Karl Rove to recreate history and attempt to wipe some of the tarnish from the Bush legacy
before he leaves office, it appears that his admission to Nightline was one of the few truthful things he has uttered.
When asked if he thinks the Bible is literally
true, Bush said: “Probably not. No, I’m not a literalist, but I think you can learn a lot from it.” He also
said he believes “God created the Earth . . . and I don’t think it’s incompatible with the scientific proof
that there is evolution.”
David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting
Network was quoted by CNN as saying “a lot of social conservative evangelicals” were “probably grabbing
the smelling salts” over the Bush revelation.
Body suggested that Bush won favor with the
evangelicals by supporting the pro-life and marriage issues. “It seems that he had cover because he had the public poly
positions down.” It appears this was part of the Rove plan for selling Bush to an extreme right-wing conservative group
of thinkers who wanted to believe they had a Bible thumper in the White House.
Like all of the other doctrines that gullible
gang buys, they bought the Bush lies hook-line-and-sinker.
Their zeal may have destroyed the greatest
nation on the planet, put eight years of additional extreme stress on an already overtaxed environment, and threatens to have
caused the eventual extinction of the human race.
As it turns out, we elected a fool who turned
the leadership of our nation over to the whims of big business interests who didn’t give a damn about the slaves who
labored or the Earth which yielded even more natural resources, all for the purpose of making them richer than they already
Bush was totally unaware of the god within.
He did the job he was hired to do very well, and if the Democrats can't pull us out of the pit we are in, Bush may
go down in history as the man who destroyed America.
