My thoughts exactly.
Slate magazine columnist Amy Sullivan has put into words what I couldn't figure a way to say, and she has done it perfectly.
"For the past six years, the most prominent Christian in America has been the president. His belief is not of the "God said it. I believe it. That settles it," sort that fundamentalists embrace. Rather, Bush subscribes to a syllogistic doctrine of presidential infallibility: God works through Christians; I am a Christian; I have decided to do X; therefore, X is God's will."
As I said, I couldn't have put it better myself. Thanks, Amy.
