What role does your faith play in your decisions?
Bush talks about the importance of prayer, but then turns to the importance of tolerating diverse religions. An admirable sentiment, but I think the underlying assumption behind the question is that Christ preached a message of peace. Bush is answering it as if the underlying assumption is that he’s a religious bigot.
If Kerry uses the word “respect” one more time, I’m going to hurl. Also makes a nod toward religious tolerance. Students snicker at his reference to being blessed by Native Americans. “As president I will always respect everybody’s right to practice as they choose, or not to practice, if that’s their choice.”
Hmm. The last part of this statement seems like something that deserves more discussion in this forum.
Nope. They’re on to something else, now.
