I could attack Christianity here, but i dont want to. However do you not see a problem with the (supposed) leader of the "Free World" in a democratic secular Nation declaring that to be president of the United States one must have a 'relationship to the [Christian] Lord'?

He said he thinks "People attack me because they are fearful that I will say that you're not as patriotic if you're not a religious person. I've never said that. I've never acted like that. I think that's just the way it is."
He said that there is no need to fear his practice of his faith in the public square.
"I fully undersatnd the job of president is and must always be protecting the great right of people to worship or not worship as they see fit. That's what distiguishes us from the Taliban. The greatest freedom we have or one of the greatest freedoms is the right to worship the way you see fit."
Bush also said that "he does not think that faith is under attack by culture at larg and points to 'backlash' against attempts to further securalize the public square as proof."
"The great thing about our country is somebody can stand up and say 'We should try to take "Under God" out of the Pleadge of Allegiance."
He's right...you have the right to worship as you please (although I beleive only one way is right). So the president can worship as he pleases.
