President Bush’s spiritual roots

From Southern Appeal:

For those interested in understanding the nature of President Bush’s spirituality I would suggest picking up a copy of A Man of Faith: The Spiritual Journey of George W. Bush. I would specifically recommend this book to those who doubt the depth of President Bush’s relationship with Christ simply because he advocates policies with which they disagree. This book illustrates how President Bush went from being merely a church member to a true man of faith. For what it is worth, this book was not written by some political hack but a former senior correspondent for Time magazine.

Bush is not a catholic. Ask Bush about some of the core tenants of his beliefs and catholics will find that they are quite different from theirs. If Lutherans/Anglicans think the Episcopals/Presbyterians/Evangelicals are totatlly wrong how the bible is being interpreted, what makes you think Bush's evangelical belief will be compatible with the catholic church?

Instead of making broad generalizations how about some specifics? There are five non-negoitiable things in the Catholic Faith, Abortion, Stem-cell research, Human Cloning, Euthanasia and Gay Marriage. We have been told that we can not be morally for any of these. The President is CLOSER, though not bound to these issues. Yet his beliefs on these things are closer to the Catholic Church. Senator Kerry is catholic, yet has consistently voted for the above, when he should be voting against. How one interprets the Bible has no actual part in this particular arguement. I think if you spent more time studying religion, your own as well as others, that you would find that we have far more in common than we have in disagreement. I admire the President's faith, I would like to be able to support Senator Kerry, but I cannot, it would be a mortal sin. I do not support pro-abortion candidates. Period. If the most vulnerable of our citizens are not protected, then none are safe. There is no point.
