Dubya on God

The dumbest thing George Dubya has said:

  • “President George Bush has repeated his belief all religions, ‘whether they be Muslim, Christian, or any other religion, prays to the same God’.”

Obviously, the person who is a student of comparative religion understands that there are mutually exclusive claims to the nature of God made in the world’s religions. To say they are all the same God’s these people are praying to is, well, illogical.

Now, if George Dubya is saying this to make the moderates understand that this isn’t a “crusader war” against them… thus trying to connect with the moderate thinkers within Islam, then this is the smartest thing Bush has said.
