Religion and Politics -- A Comment

This critique of Bush's injection of his religious beliefs into his policy decisions comes from a record from China, dated 662 BCE:

It is when a state is about to flourish that [its ruler] listens to his people; when it is about to persih then he listens to the spirits.

Sage wisdom. Not only were the Chinese a dynasty of the past, but the next great superpower. After all, they own most of our debt. It is frightening that the POTUS claims to have conversations with God. As I know God does not exist, then we have a POTUS who talks to himself.

I personally feel he is no more religious than the average person, but uses it alternately as an excuse/reason or to garner support from his fundie base.
