In Niceville, Mr. Bush's appearance took on the air of a revival meeting as the audience chanted affirmation to his description of the rationale for his antiterror efforts and roared at any religious reference. Gary Walby, a resident of nearby Destin, told the president during a question-and-answer session that though he always voted Republican, "this is the very first time I felt God was in the White House."
The consequences of blurring the fine line between the church and the state can be disastrous; God only knows what it can lead to.
What does Mr. Bush think about this? Does he approve of this kind of hero worship?
What do the experts say about it? Or has God silenced them??
The influence of advertising, the media, and partisan politics, among other things, poses great challenges to clear thinking. The demands of work, a lack of time, and the overwhelming flow of information further add to the problem. Can we rise to the challenge and improve the ways in which we think?
Our attempts at better thinking can lead to better solutions and a better life.
