White House denies Bush claimed divine inspiration [Man on a Mission - from God?]

White House denies Bush claimed divine inspiration - Yahoo! News

For the other side of the story, from White House spokesman, Scott McClellean.

I remain unconvinced, this rebuttal sounds like damage control.

See the photo in the article. Is this GWB listening for God's instructions?

From the article:

"Shaath, now the Palestinian information minister, said: "President Bush said to all of us: 'I'm driven with a mission from God'."

I'm reminded of the Blues Brothers movie. Dan Ackroyd, one of the Brothers, kept saying, with a straight face: "We are on a mission from God."

We thought it was funny then, because it sounded so overblown and incongruous.

To hear it from U.S. President George W. Bush, Leader of the Free World, is just plain creepy. Scary.

Who is GWB to be such an expert at interpreting God's will, anyway? God's will for the United States and for all of the World?

No, it's all just creepy.

I'll be looking for this BBC series to check this out for myself.
