    Say whaaaat? What did you think I was saying again? You did not read that part of the new testament about Jesus and the little children? But my point was that Bush sees what he is doing as a Christian act. And the people he's appealing to for votes see it the same way. Whether you think Jesus actually said anything about that or not is irrelevant. If the people using the issue think it's so that's all that matters as far as what I'm talking about.
