J.F.K. had to fight the anti-papist expectation that his Oval Office would take orders from heaven. For W., it's a selling point. Some right-wing Catholics want John Kerry excommunicated, while evangelicals call the president a messenger of God. "God's blessing is on him," the TV evangelist Pat Robertson says, adding, "It's the blessing of heaven on the emperor."
I play video games for a little escape from reality - not because they fortell reality. Good lord, what the hell is happening in this country?
As if the policies of the president aren't enough to vote against him, how about the people who support him? Do we really want a theocracy?
