Who ran the Bush White House?: Christians
*********** **************
********************* ***********************

General Boykin is an evangelical Christian, a General in the United States Army and the undersecretary of defense for intelligence. Much of his time has been devoted to giving speeches extolling the virtues of his God and putting down that of others. He has told audiences, among other things that Christians worship "a real God" and non-Christians revere "an idol." He has described Mr. Bush's battle in Iraq as a battle against Satan who "wants to destroy us as a Christian army." He has said that Islamic terrorists would only be defeated if "we come at them in the name of Jesus." Commenting on the capture of Somali warlord, Osman Ato, he told one audience that: "Well, you know what, I knew that my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God and his was an idol." Following Mr. Ato's capture the general went into his cell and said: "Mr. Ato, you underestimated our God." He correctly told one audience that "[T]he majority of Americans did not vote for him [Bush]." Ignoring the role of the United States Supreme Court he went on to say, less correctly that: "He's in the White House because God put him there for a time such as this."

God and the Bush Administration

The very first act of the new Bush administration was to have a Protestant Evangelist minister officially dedicate the inauguration to Jesus Christ, who he declared to be "our savior." Invoking "the Father, the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ" and "the Holy Spirit," Billy Graham's son, the man selected by President George W. Bush to bless his presidency, excluded the tens of millions of Americans who are Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Shintoists, Unitarians, agnostics and atheists from his blessing by his particularistic and parochial language.

Bush Starts Off by Defying the Constitution

George W. Bush has used the word "Crusade" to describe his war against the people he calls "evildoers." Bush clearly believes that the United States of America is a Christian nation, and that the government should be used to promote Christian religious projects.
General Wesley Clark reports in his latest book that the White House has drawn up a list of exclusively Muslim nations to target as enemies over the next four years (Afghanistan, Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and the Sudan - two down, six to go).
Bush says that he's fighting against terrorism everywhere, yet refuses to touch Christian terrorist groups, even those that are organizing within the United States. Bush seems only interested in fighting Muslim terrorists.
In Iraq, a government-paid chaplain has been baptizing American soldiers as Christians in exchange for giving them water to take showers.

The signs of a holy war are undeniably present.
