RUSH: Andrew, Dicks Hills, New York, welcome to the EIB Network, sir, hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush, thank you for taking my call.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: On the issue of Mitt Romney being a Mormon, the other, in addition to all the things you were talking about yesterday about the media, in addition they’ve been try to create this misconception that evangelical Christians will not vote for him, and I tell you as a preacher, a Christian evangelical minister in the area, I will vote for him because, you see, he is a conservative. And you know, Rush, on the flip side of that, the other misconception is that Christians voted for Bush just because he was a Christian, and it’s not true. I didn’t vote for George Bush just because he was an evangelical Christian.
RUSH: Look, the Drive-By Media, the American left have fears themselves. They are afraid of a lot of things. One of the things they are most profoundly afraid of is religious people. Whether you call them evangelicals or whether you call them the Christian right, they’re scared to death of them. There has been an ongoing attempt, as I’m sure you know, to discredit these people and make ’em look like dangerous —
RUSH: I mean you can find Rosie O’Donnell comparing them to jihadists, Muslim jihadists.
RUSH: Because it’s fear. These are people who have no belief in God.
CALLER: Rush, while I?m on the subject, you know, they tried to create this image that Bush is — you know, you’ve heard the term messianic complex. And yet besides the faith-based initiatives, no one can name a single policy that George Bush has tried to implement because he’s a Christian.
RUSH: No, here’s what they think. They think that Bush is stubborn on Iraq and stubborn on the war on terror because he believes he’s being guided by God-d. They think that Bush is alone on this and he’s talking to God, and, worse, that God’s talking to him, and they think Bush is insane. They think Bush is Looney Toons, scares them to death that he would eschew all this expertise from the think tanks and from the Democrats and the generals and so forth and continue to plug away on something that’s hopelessly lost, i.e., the war on terror and the war in Iraq. That’s what their fear is. It?s pronounced. They don’t say it, but I know these people, and that’s exactly one of the many things that they fear about religious people.
