Your daily news dump

Bush: "I will be your president regardless of your faith, and I don't expect you to agree with me necessarily on religion," Bush said. "As a matter of fact, no president should ever try to impose religion on our society. ... The great thing that unites is the fact you can worship freely if you choose, and if you — you don't have to worship."

The word "necessarily" frightens me a bit.

Also, not unexpected. I'm so glad I voted absentee.

And finally, this article really concerns me (especially the last sentence). Does that mean from now on, our country will only elect Christian officials (or ones who claim to be Christian)? I mean, that's always been the case in reality, but never this clear a mandate. I don't have a problem with Christian leaders, but I do have a problem with making it an unspoken criterion for election...I think it will breed dishonesty and division.

I hope my Christian friends haven't been getting the wrong impression of me lately. I've just been railing against too many people claiming to be Christian without the most fundamental of the beliefs (like compassion).
