POT, KETTLE, ETC….Hmmm, do you think the Bush team has become a little oversensitive lately?
“What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but doesn’t have works,” [John] Kerry said, quoting James 2:14. “When we look at what is happening in America today, where are the works of compassion?”
The Bush-Cheney camp cited that quote as an improper use of the Christian scriptures to take a veiled slap at Bush, a conservative Christian, and his claim to being a compassionate conservative.
“John Kerry’s comment at New Northside Baptist Church was beyond the bounds of acceptable discourse, and a sad exploitation of scripture for a political attack,” said Bush campaign spokesman Steve Schmidt.
Quoting scripture and then criticizing your opponent is “beyond the bounds of acceptable discourse” in a presidential campaign? Who makes up this stuff?
