A guest blog

From someone who should be blogging every day, but doesn't have the time...

AP Wire report from 01/19/05:

"At noon EST Thursday on the West Front of the Capitol, Bush will place his hand on a family Bible - the same one he used in 2001 - and be sworn in for a second term, a sequel to four turbulent years marked by the nation's worst terrorist attack, a U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan and a war in Iraq that has claimed the lives of more than 1,300 Americans."

Which prompts my predictable question: How often was that family Bible ever opened from one inauguration to the next?

Since we know the George Bush doesn't attend church while in D.C., I think this is a valid question.

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you should be seeing that this president is a lot more talk and little or no action on the policy front to push "Christian" values. Bush has testified to the changing power of Christ and, of that, I don't deny. I only deny that Bush is a "Christian" President. Democrats don't have the corner on Christianity either. No political party does, so can we stop being idolators and placing the Most Powerful within a human construct?
