Jesus wept, and no wonder by Christ!


The name "Bob Jones" has become such a repository of political meaning that it's sometimes easy to forget there is actually a guy named Bob Jones (I mean, putting aside that there are probably a hundred million guys named Bob Jones). Lest we forget, the original greaser Bob has written a hilarious letter of congratulations to President Bush. Some excerpts:

In your re-election, God has graciously granted America—though she doesn't deserve it—a reprieve from the agenda of paganism. You have been given a mandate.

…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.

…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 years—a brief time only—to leave an imprint for righteousness upon this nation that brings with it the blessings of Almighty God.

Although the Bob Jones University site appears to be down at the moment, the full text of the letter can apparently be found here.

Thanks to Mark Bonacquisti for the heads up.
