Bob Jones III hands down his judgement on the election.
“In your re-election, God has graciously granted America – though she doesn’t deserve it – a reprieve from the agenda of paganism,” Jones wrote Bush in a congratulatory letter posted on the university’s Web site.
“You have been given a mandate. … Put your agenda on the front burner and let it boil. You owe the liberals nothing. They despise you because they despise your Christ,” said the letter, dated Nov. 3.
In February 2000, Bush spoke at Bob Jones University when he was running for his first term in the White House. At the time, the school banned interracial dating and included anti-Roman Catholic material on its Web site.
The private Christian college has since dropped the dating ban but still maintains on its Internet site material questioning Catholicism.

Frankly, I think Bush has a lot more to worry about from the right-wing whack-jobs than the Democrats do. After all, we know they don’t like us, but when they inevitably turn on their alleged allies, there will be Hell to pay (pun intended).
