Playing God, Part 2

The Guardian has more reminders of Bush Administration demagoguery:
  • God wanted him to run for president
  • God speaks through him
  • God directs our policies in the Middle East
  • Our nation's enemies will be destroyed in a great crusade
  • American liberty is God's gift to humanity
  • The war against terror is a war against Satan
  • God put Bush in the White House, since the American people certainly didn't.*
* Lieutenant General William Boykin, now deputy under-secretary of defence for intelligence.
