“Because G.W. Bush was seen as a devout “born again” Christian and had the support of the entire Religious Right, I tried to warn people that when Bush introduced his preemptive war doctrine and invaded Iraq and Afghanistan—and simultaneously launched his “war on terror” (meaning war on Muslims, except for Muslims in Saudi Arabia, of course)—he was in the process of forever changing the fundamental philosophy and theology of America’s Christians. And, again, I was not wrong.
And now Donald Trump is taking the war fever implanted in conservatives and Christians by G.W. Bush to a whole new level.”
