Check out this excellent piece by the always entertaining Neal Pollack about President Bush’s version of being a Christian (and the fact that he’s trying to drag the rest of us along with him):

Like everything else churned out by the Bush administration, Camp Redemption is an Orwellian nonsense term. It’s a big old jail, people. Get over yourselves. I’m offended nonetheless. We all know that “redemption,” under this president, can only be handed out by one mythical figure, Jesus Christ himself. I have no truck with the many good men and women of the United States who believe in Jesus, but that doesn’t mean that I share their specific belief. Heaven help me, I’m an American, not a Christian. I don’t want my tax dollars going to help Halliburton “build” bridges, and I don’t want my semi-hard-earned money going to “redeem” anyone in my name. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord, my ass. This is a secular country.

In case you hadn’t noticed, Bush has some real issues with the whole separation of church and state thing.
