George W. Bush can’t seem to shut the fuck up about God. Maybe I’ve just been listening to the radio (I’ve been trying to figure out just how we went from “We have a problem with Iraq” to “We’ve got troops in Iraq” without ever hearing “We’ve declared war on Iraq”), but it seems like every other word out of the guy’s mouth is “God” or “faith” or “providence”. He pushes bills and politicians who that make no bones about being entirely about Christianity. He prays in public as if God can’t hear unless he’s at a podium.
So when he gave that inspiring, religious speech when we lost the shuttle, why didn’t he state what his religion- a religion that he seems intent on injecting into our government in any way he can- really believes. Presumably there was a Jewish man and a Hindu woman on that shuttle- and who knows exactly how many atheists. According to standard Christian dogma (which George W Bush certainly caters to, and presumably believes) those astronauts are now burning in Hell.
If George wants to talk about religion. Why doesn’t he talk about that? If he wants to tell us about God in his speeches, why doesn’t he come out and say what he really thinks? I don’t have any real beef with Christianity, and I don’t really care what diety the president worships, but if that president is going to keep running off at the mouth about that diety, I think he ought to give us the whole story.
Or maybe he can just SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT GOD because he is a PRESIDENT, NOT A PREACHER. As an atheist, I am sick of how George Bush is so damn set on weasling Christianity into anything he can as if it were Clinton’s schlong into an intern. It’s sickening. Really. really. sickening.
