That's all I have time to comment on this week, but here's more you'll want to ponder:
- "How Bush Speaks in Religious Code," Bruce Lincoln, Boston Globe 9.11.04
- "Openly Religious, to a Point: Bush Leaves the Specifics of His Faith to Speculation," Alan Cooperman, Washington Post 9.16.04, reg req'd; see also "Words of God," Ayelish McGarvey, Tapped 9.16.04
- "The Bush Crusade," James Carroll, The Nation 9.20.04
And, stepping off the Bush theme for a moment but staying with James Carroll, I'd especially recommend Carroll's op-ed this morning in praise of Benedict Spinoza, "America's Jewish Founding Father," a wonderful tribute to a religious and political liberal.
