    The White House? What *Bishop* has condemned this ruling? Of course, for such a statement to be significant, the individual has to have some credibility. Which George Bush has and the Bishops do not.

    The trouble, Verax, is that the White House knows so many Christians think that way. So the GOP can make overtures to the gay-rights lobby, confident that Christian voters have no alternative. If we always accept second-best from the Republicans, because the Democrats are worse-- that's a strategy for failure. Ronald Reagan told conservatives: "I need pressure from the Right." Otherwise the chorus from the Left is unopposed, and policy moves in that direction.

    Any attack on our wonderful President, direct or indirect, will only help to make Clintonism the state religion by Supreme Court established. I think we should not expect our Pres. to be perfect, but should be very grateful that he remains as good a Christian as he is ! Aren't you glad we don't have another "Chretien" ?
