When prostitution is called "a marriage of convenience"
by Mel Seesholtz | Oct 19 2006
David Kuo is a conservative Christian. Until 2003 he was deputy director of President Bush's Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. Even before his new book Tempting Faith: An Inside Story of Political Seduction
was released (pertinent excerpts from the book are now available), fallout from the nuclear detonation – or "nu-cu-lar" as linguistically-challenged George W. would say – was being reported:
A former Bush aide claims that evangelical Christians were embraced for political gain at the White House but derided privately as "nuts," "ridiculous" and "goofy." ... Kuo's account of how the faith-based office has been regarded inside the White House recalls that of another high-level alumnus of the program. John J. DiIulio Jr., the faith-based office's first director, who quit in 2002, told Esquire magazine that "Mayberry Machiavellis" led by Rove based policy only on re-election concerns.
The evangelical Christian Right thought they'd finally found their messiah in George W. Bush who would lead them to the promised land of their New World Order. What they got was a screw-up who most of the world considers the greatest threat to global peace and whose domestic policies have been fiascos, failures, or both.
