William Hershey and Mei-Ling Hopgood write in the Dayton Daily News that Bush's rally at the Hancock County Fairgrounds in Findlay, Ohio, "had a religious tone. A pastor invoked a prayer to 'dispel the spirit of deception' and to bless Bush. Supporters waved signs that read 'Finally, a Christian fighting evil' and 'One Country under God and President Bush.'"
Here's an AP photo of one of those signs.
And here are recent AFP photos showing Bush touching a girl's forehead, and grasping a supporter's Bible
These are the kinds of people that scare the crap out of me. Religious discourse has no place in our democracy. We are not a christian nation - we are a secular democracy. Any familiarity with our history prove this easily (and for those that say the founders were men of faith, then you should consider this: If you believe, does that mean your job is a christian job? a jewish job?) Add another thing to the list of reasons not to vote for bush: his supporters.
