Bush enlists the pope 

Great NYT article on Bush's latest grasp at enlisting religious leaders to do his bidding.

"Bush said, 'Not all the American bishops are with me' on the cultural issues. The implication was that he hoped the Vatican would nudge them toward more explicit activism."

Although they are against gay marriage and abortion, Dear Leader, they were also against the war and torture -- do you see the conundrum?

One must wonder about the level of desparation Dear Leader is feeling to enlist the pope for help and to try and divide the religious community as Josh Marshall points out.
