With God at our side

A quote from film-maker Alexandra Pelosi (Nancy's youngest) regarding her upcoming HBO documentary about the American evangelical community sums up succinctly what I, and many I guess, find so scary about these folks.

They're so sure they've got all the answers, they've stopped asking the questions.

And I'm not sure what's scarier, that such assuredness serves as a defense against unacknowledged inner turmoil and doubt (the Ted Haggard syndrome) or is an accurate representation of people's inner selves.

But it does say a lot about the Bush presidency.
