But wait a minute. I was raised to believe that a Christian is one who follows the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Bible, and who lives by those teachings.
Let's compare the teachings of Jesus with the words of "born again" Bush, and then decide.
Jesus: "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God." (Matthew 5:9)
Jesus: "Judge not, that you be not judged." (Matthew 7:1)
George: "States like [North Korea, Iran, and Iraq], and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil." (State of the Union Address, January 2002)
Jesus: "Let your 'Yes' mean 'Yes', and your 'No' mean 'No'. Anything more is from the evil one." (Matthew 5:37)
George: "The fundamental question is, did Saddam Hussein have a weapons program? And the answer is, absolutely. And we gave him a chance to allow the inspectors in, and he wouldn't let them in." (Washington, DC, July 2003)
Jesus: "Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." (Matthew 19:24)
George: "This is an impressive crowd -- the haves and the have-mores. Some people call you the elite, I call you my base." (At a dinner for wealthy New York socialites, October 2000)
