  • Poll: Americans Want a `Deeply Religious' Person as President (sorry, McCainiac and Guiliani)

    The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life ^ | January 9, 2004 | Adelle M. Banks, Religion News Service
    WASHINGTON -- Almost 60 percent of likely voters surveyed say it's important for a president to believe in God and be deeply religious while also having the backing of most Americans on how he is managing the economy and foreign policy. A new O'Leary Report/Zogby International Values Poll (as of January 2004) that looked at the political and ideological divisions in the nation showed significant support for personal religious involvement by the country's top leader. Fifty-nine percent of those polled said having a president who is religious is more important to them than having one who is not religious, while...

    U.S. President George W. Bush has alienated Muslims around the world by using absolutist Christian rhetoric to discuss foreign policy issues, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright says. "I worked for two presidents who were men of faith, and they did not make their religious views part of American policy," she said, referring to Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, both Democrats and Christians. "President Bush's certitude about what he believes in, and the division between good and evil, is, I think, different," said Albright, who has just published a book on religion and world affairs. "The absolute truth is what...
  • Bush the evangelist?

    What is happening to George W. Bush is that dissenters are moving from criticism of him to just plain hostility to him. Swings in the public mood that emphatic aren't unknown to American history, though these days they are more lacerating because of the diurnal polls that give lapidary attention to wisps of sentiment. No doubt about it, the president's popularity is very low, though the exact meaning of that, and the causes of it, aren't obvious. The most amusing, and jauntily informative, depiction of the popularity track was done by Stuart Eugene Thiel, an enterprising student of psephology. One...
  • Bush Calls U.S. a Nation of Prayer

    WASHINGTON - President Bush said Thursday that America's history is inexorably tied to prayer. "America is a nation of prayer. It's impossible to tell the story of our nation without telling the story of people who pray," Bush said during a White House celebration of the National Day of Prayer. "At decisive moments in our history and in quiet times around family tables, we are a people humbled and strengthened and blessed by prayer." Bowing his head many times as Christian and Jewish leaders offered prayers, the president thanked those who pray for him, calling it the greatest gift a...

    The Church Report is pleased to announce this year’s list of The 50 Most Influential Christians in America. Thanks to the readers of the magazine as well as the online readers for contributing over 150,000 nominations. Each of the people on this list is most deserving of this recognition. As with all types of lists, there are those who are not on the list – not because they weren’t deserving – but simply because we did not have enough space to publish a list of the 100 most influential. The staff of The Church Report did not choose this list;...

  • How the GOP Became God's Own Party By Kevin Phillips

    Washington Post ^ | Sunday, April 2, 2006 | Kevin Phillips
    Now that the GOP has been transformed by the rise of the South, the trauma of terrorism and George W. Bush's conviction that God wanted him to be president, a deeper conclusion can be drawn: The Republican Party has become the first religious party in U.S. history. We have had small-scale theocracies in North America before -- in Puritan New England and later in Mormon Utah. Today, a leading power such as the United States approaches theocracy when it meets the conditions currently on display: an elected leader who believes himself to speak for the Almighty, a ruling political party...

    BILL MAHER, HOST: What scares me about a guy like George Bush—and I say this many times, I know people get sick of it—but it’s the certitude that people get when they are people of faith. I know he’s a person of faith, so no matter how low his approval rating goes, he doesn’t care because he sees himself as a messianic figure that history will judge, okay. It’s not about the people now, they can’t follow where I’m going. D.L. HUGHLEY: If I hear one more person tell me how this man is a man of faith, I think...

    In a recent USA Today op-ed, Tom Krattenmaker argues that “playing the God card” has backfired on President George W. Bush. The president’s favorability has fallen through the floor, Krattenmaker argues. And surely God would never side with unpopular presidents. “The God’s-on-our-side rhetoric is looking even less credible now, after more than a year of frequently bad news for the president and his administration,” he writes. As for the actual “God’s-on-our-side” rhetoric, Mr. Krattenmaker’s examples are pretty lame. He quotes an obscure alternate delegate to the 2004 Republican National Convention and New York Governor George Pataki (no favorite of the...

    Bush recalled with great fondness the many times Americans have prayed for him. "I can't tell you the number of times out there traveling our country, people walk up, total strangers, and say, Mr. President, I'm praying for you and your family", he said. "It is one of the great blessings of the presidency, and one of the most wonderful gifts a person can give any of us who have the responsibility to govern justly." Prayer, he said, "reminds us that when we bow our heads or fall to our knees, we are all equal and precious in the eyes...

    Current Events Prayer in the White House Paul Johnson, 11.28.05, 12:00 AM ET President Bush has recently stated that he prayed to God for advice on his Iraq policy. Should an American President pray before taking important risks? Is a God-fearing and God-consulting President more desirable than an entirely secular one who is guided purely by expert advice and realpolitik? As Sherlock Holmes would say, "These are deep waters, Watson." Most American Presidents have believed in God and prayed accordingly in moments of crisis. Abraham Lincoln, for instance, was not a regular Christian by most standards, but the record suggests...

    The Telegraph (U.K.) ^ | 10/11/05 | Mark Steyn
    Of all the total non-stories reported by the British media since 9/11 - the brutal Afghan winter, the non-existent Jenin massacre - has there ever been a bigger waste of space than the column inches devoted to "Bush: God Told Me to Invade Iraq"? That was the Independent's headline. The Guardian, like the Indy, led with a front-page picture of the President aglow in his own personal halo, but preferred the caption: "George Bush believes he is on a mission from God." And my old comrade Mark Lawson piled on with a full columnar sneer at the President's "Manichean convictions"....

    David Aikman's recent book, A Man of Faith: The Spiritual Journey of George W. Bush, highlights the pivotal role religious faith plays in George W. Bush's life and presidency. The book chronicles Bush's slow ascendancy to his faith, taking note of the key people and seminal events that helped shape his Christian worldview. Aikman, a former senior correspondent for Time magazine, is an open Christian who is sympathetic to Bush's core religious principles. Aikman's work is the second one that touches on Bush's faith. Stephen Mansfield wrote the first, The Faith of George W. Bush, which was released last year,...

    Commentary ^ | June 2005 | Wilfred M. McClay
    Among all the things that liberals loathe about George W. Bush, his religious fervor would seem to be at or near the top of the list. Some consider him a mere pretender, or a hypocrite, lashing out at his post-9/11 persona as a world-transforming warrior with bumper-sticker barbs like “Who would Jesus bomb?” For the most part, though, liberal animus toward Bush’s faith comes from the opposite direction. It is his religious sincerity that infuriates and frightens, especially when contrasted with the easy and empty Bible-toting of, say, a Bill Clinton. One does not have to dig very deep to...

    President Bush has never been shy about talking about his faith, and he has been getting more opportunities with the increasing popularity of prayer breakfasts. Bush doesn't typically lead the worship at these events, but speaks easily of his faith and humbly of his place before God. "Through fellowship and prayer, we acknowledge that all power is temporary, and must ultimately answer to his purposes," Bush said at the National Prayer Breakfast in February. In the past six weeks, Bush has been the main attraction at three prayer events. He hosted the National Day of Prayer at the White House,...
