An Extraordinary Man Confesses

President Bush, originally uploaded by ddbsweasel.

When it comes to the battle between the religious and the spiritual, Religion gets the Weasel's vote.
Spiritualists are not responsible to anyone or anything, other than their own perception. But it isn't the case that things happen by accident. Things happen, and fortunate things happen to those who plan well.
Some are suspicious of President Bush because he prays to god.
Worry more about world leaders that talk to themselves.
Making Jesus the centre of one's life sounds a little schitzophrenic for the uninitiated. However, the self centered often watch the wrong things and make mistakes they shouldn't.

Bush Found 'Inspiration From a Higher Power' to Overcome Alcohol
Associated Press
BALTIMORE — President Bush on Tuesday referred to his former struggles with alcohol as an "addiction," a blunt characterization of his less disciplined adult days before a reliance on faith help him turn his life around.

"Addiction is hard to overcome," Bush said in speaking at a faith-based center that helps former prisoners get job training and other help.

"As you might remember, I drank too much at one time in my life," Bush said. "I understand faith-based programs. I understand that sometimes you can find the inspiration from a higher power to solve an addiction problem."

Increasingly, Bush has reflected in candid terms about his days of drinking. Last month, he told some young recovering addicts to stick with their fight against drugs and cited his own experiences with alcohol years ago. He said then that "addiction competes for your affection ... you fall in love with alcohol."

Bush, 61, decided to quit drinking alcohol after a boozy night in 1986 celebrating his 40th birthday. He went on to win election and re-election as Texas governor before bidding for the White House.

The president spoke Tuesday at the Jericho Program, which helps former prisoners get their lives in order and contribute to society. The stop came as Bush sought to keep some attention on his faith-based programs, one of the themes from his final State of the Union address on Monday night.
