The president of Bob Jones University, a conservative Christian school in South Carolina, has written President GeorgeW.Bush to say his reelection shows that God has given the nation “a reprieve from the agenda of paganism.” BobJonesIII read his November 3 letter to students at a chapel service on the Greenville campus, and it was posted on the school’s Web site. “In your reelection, God has graciously granted America—though she doesn’t deserve it—a reprieve from the agenda of paganism,” he said. Jones suggested that the president remove staffers who don’t agree with his biblical values. “Don’t equivocate. Put your agenda on the front burner and let it boil,” he advised, then went on to say: “You owe the liberals nothing. They despise you because they despise your Christ.” President Bush was criticized for visiting the school during his campaign for president in 2000.
