Sounds like an endorsement to round up all pagan heathens and anyone who is not a believer of Christ such as Jews etc. Homosexuals and on and on. They can't burn us all!!! I for one am not going down without a fight. Let them try to put out the light.

Pagan And Proud! 13.Nov.2004 17:37

THIS IS THE TEXT OF THE LETTER DIRECTLY CUT AND PASTE FROM THE BOB JONES WEBSITE ON FRIDAY NOVEMBER 12 7PM EST.

November 3, 2004

President George W. Bush
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. President:

The media tells us that you have received the
largest number of popular votes of any president
in America's history. Congratulations!

In your re-election, God has graciously granted
Americathough she doesn't deserve ita reprieve
from the agenda of paganism. You have been given a
mandate. We the people expect your voice to be
like the clear and certain sound of a trumpet.
Because you seek the Lord daily, we who know the
Lord will follow that kind of voice eagerly.

Don't equivocate. Put your agenda on the front
burner and let it boil. You owe the liberals
nothing. They despise you because they despise
your Christ. Honor the Lord, and He will honor you.

Had your opponent won, I would have still given
thanks, because the Bible says I must (I
Thessalonians 5:18). It would have been hard, but
because the Lord lifts up whom He will and pulls
down whom He will, I would have done it. It is
easy to rejoice today, because Christ has allowed
you to be His servant in this nation for another
presidential term. Undoubtedly, you will have
opportunity to appoint many conservative judges
and exercise forceful leadership with the Congress
in passing legislation that is defined by biblical
norm regarding the family, sexuality, sanctity of
life, religious freedom, freedom of speech, and
limited government. You have four yearsa brief
time onlyto leave an imprint for righteousness
upon this nation that brings with it the blessings
of Almighty God.

Christ said, If any man serve me, let him follow
me; and where I am, there shall also my servant
be: if any man serve me, him will my father
honour (John 12:26).

The student body, faculty, and staff at Bob Jones
University commit ourselves to pray for youthat
you would do right and honor the Savior. Pull out
all the stops and make a difference. If you have
weaklings around you who do not share your
biblical values, shed yourself of them.
Conservative Americans would love to see one
president who doesn't care whether he is liked,
but cares infinitely that he does right.

Best wishes.

Sincerely your friend,

Bob Jones III
President

PS: A few moments ago I read this letter to the
students in Chapel. They applauded loudly their
approval.

When I told them that Tom Daschle was no longer
the minority leader of the Senate, they cheered again.

On occasion, Christians have not agreed with
things you said during your first term.
Nonetheless, we could not be more thankful that
God has given you four more years to serve Him in
the White House, never taking off your Christian
faith and laying it aside as a man takes off a
jacket, but living, speaking, and making decisions
as one who knows the Bible to be eternally true.

What kind of Christians can they be? 15.Nov.2004 12:10

Among the many readings in the Bible that come to mind when hearing such self-righteous, judgemental and hypocritical conversations about and among self-proclaimed-pious individuals:

Matthew 6:1-7

Gospel
Lk 18:9-14

This letter and the underlying beliefs make Christians look as bad as GW makes Americans look.
