Garry Wills on Bush’s faith-based failures

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Garry Wills’ “A Country Ruled by Faith” at NYRB leads with this observation:

The right wing in America likes to think that the United States government was, at its inception, highly religious, specifically highly Christian, and even more specifically highly biblical. That was not true of that government or any later government—until 2000, when the fiction of the past became the reality of the present.

The reminder of the piece is a bracing examination of the role of “faith-based certitude” in the Bush administration’s many miserable failures.
