    In my religion and politics class last week, my professor discussed an article regarding one of the president's justifications for America going to war with Iraq. God had told him that it was the right thing to do. Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the radical islamic fundamentalists commit the September 11th attacks for that very same reason? Weren't they doing it for Allah?

    Looks like Bush is in good company! Mr. Bush could be considered to be in the same category as Mr. bin Laden. God telling Bush to go to war also seems like it would violate the separation between church and state. Obviously these are big statements. But they're regarding extremely big actions and consequences.

    Just a thought.

    Could you please provide a link to this article? As far as I know and have seen and heard Bush or anybody close to him have never said that he said that god tod him it was the right thing to do. Because it comes from one of "today's" college professors I am highly skeptical and suspicious of this claim.

    C'mon OCA, there's no link. :D
    This argument has been refuted here already. The professor has his facts mixed up......

    It sickens me to think that these retarded professors are shoveling this shit to students. The least they can do is get their facts straight if they are going to be spouting their political views upon students. This retard wouldn't refer to himself as Bullypulpit or Psychoblues, would he?

    Your professor has it completely wrong. According to the Bob Woodward book, the President prayed but did not cite God as the justification for the war.

    How much you wanna bet many liberals will discard those words by Woodward, and at the same time they will cite anything negative from his book about Bush as Gospel!
