"Falwell says evangelical Christians now in control of Republican Party"

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]hummingwolf)

I wasn't sure whether to post this one or not, considering how utterly unsurprising it is these days. "WASHINGTON — The Rev. Jerry Falwell boasted Friday that evangelical Christians, after nearly 25 years of increasing political activism, now control the Republican Party and the fate of President Bush in the November election."

In the comments over on Christdot, someone pointed to a story reporting that George W. Bush told a group of Old Order Amish: "I trust God speaks through me. Without that, I couldn't do my job."

It would make sense sense for a Christian president to believe that he had his job because it was God's will for him to be there, and it would make sense for a Christian president to pray for and seek the Lord's guidance in all that he does. Heck, those are things even an unelected, ordinary Christian can believe and do without being ridiculous. But does Dubya honestly believe he's a prophet? That does sound like what he's saying here. Then again, maybe he just thinks he's a Pope.
