I was looking at the Southern Baptist website and they had a piece on how Bush is a great evangelical president because he has increased room for evangelism around the world.
Yet on the same site is a piece on how Bush's state department has declared Vietnam ok in terms religious freedom, much to the consternation of evangelical groups. They also should have included how many Christians have fled Iraq since the advent of the war.
In this same article Bush is lauded for the war on terror. Of course no word is mentioned concerning torture, or illegal spying or the loss of civil liberties. Only that he was right to see foreign policy as a war between good and evil. Is this actually Christian?
I always thought this was Manichaeism. Christian faith points to the recognition of the pervasiveness of sin, even in ourselves. The good evil dichotomy doesn't describe our world and may obscure our own guilt and our own judgment before God.
