George W. Bush & the Unreligious Right
Joseph J. Martos has written a book, available online, which asks serious moral questions about the presidency of George W. Bush.
Joseph J. Martos has made it possible to read his book, updated in May, 2004, online. The title expresses the subject matter: George W. Bush & the Unreligious Right. On his webpage Martos says this:
What if President Bush is not the Christian he thinks he is? What if the Bush administration is disobeying Godís will as it is revealed in the Bible?
According to the scriptures, Godís blessings are bestowed on the righteous, not on the self-righteous, and those who act contrary to Godís commands can expect divine punishment. If U.S. government policies contradict the moral law inscribed in the human heart, God will not bless America. Instead, America will be cursed among the nations. Already, many around the world have expressed anger at the U.S. and its president.
Biblical morality also suggests that responding to the tragic events of September 11th, 2001, using massive military force was a huge ethical mistake. A war on terrorism that hurts the innocent as well as the guilty does not inspire respect. Instead, it incites revenge.
Some months ago, I set out to look for answers. With the Bible in one hand and the public record in the other, I began to get a new perspective on what is going on in Washington. This book will take you on my journey of discovery.
