Remembering George W. Bush

This came in an email:

Our pick for today's "True Life" Hero:

"When you turn your heart and your life over to Christ as the Savior, it changes your life. And that's what happened to me."

---George W. Bush

Of the duties common to civil authorities, George W. Bush manifested perhaps the most significant---the restraining of evil. Lawlessness is inevitable to any human society, and it is the moral obligation of judicial powers to do all in their ability to maintain liberty by preventing the spread of unethical practices. Whether or not you agree with everything he did, one thing is certain---our former president acted in the defense of the unborn simply by refusing to to act for abortion. During his eight-year term as Commander-in-Chief, he banned partial-birth abortion, set restraints upon embryonic stem cell research, and protected medical personnel concerning their views on life. This reverence was undoubtedly seeded in knowledge of Scripture, and a fear of God. As the Freedom of Choice Act lingers threateningly before us, may we be grateful for one man's unwillingness to participate in the counsel of the ungodly. Though George Bush's name has at times suffered malicious and irrational accusations, he symbolizes heroism of a rare and incomparable sort!

"Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers."

---Psalm 1:1

ALthough President Bush made some decisions I did not agree with, I too believe he made HEARTFELT decisions not just decisions pandering to public opinion.
That would have to have been very hard- and the utter humiliation that the media tried to dish out to him relentlessly was UNprecedented!

He handeled it with pure grace, if you ask me.

What I notice about him is that he always seemed to have this joviality, this smile that said, "I'm happy and not holding a grudge no matter what anyone says about me." To me he is a true Christian.

Ideally as a as a conservative you want a social and fiscal conservative president. Bush was not fiscally conservative which was ultimately his undoing, losing a small bit of his republican support. I loved the man and his stand for life.

I know guitarman, he was fiscally liberal, yet he could not please the liberals. As Michael Medved says, it's because of religious intolerance.
