On the letters page Richard Sutherland of Los Altos makes the charge that President Bush, under a mandate from God, is responsible for killing thousands of innocent women, children and the unborn. Sutherland assures readers that God does not communicate directly with him, but he fails to clear up just how such bad information was beamed into his skull. We seem to remember that the topic was widely discussed in the UN as well as in our own legislative bodies without a single reference to God. A popular notion seems to have taken hold that accusations can be leveled without referencing the historical record. President Bush is disparaged for mentioning God in any context, meanwhile statements by the pope that are useful for to the anti-war movement get bandied about as if Mr. Bush was insufficently religious. Mr. Sutherland,the devil is in the details.
