One only has to check out Bush's record as Governor of Texas to see his own preference for death over life. During his tenure as Governor, Bush
presided over a record setting 152 executions, including the 1998 execution of fellow born-again Christian Karla Faye Tucker, a convicted murderer who
later led a prison ministry. Forty of Bush's executions were carried out in 2000, the year the Bush presidential campaign was spotlighting their
candidate's strong law enforcement record. The Washington Post's Richard Cohen reported in October 2000 that one of the execution chamber's
"tie-down team" members, Fred Allen, had to prepare so many people for lethal injections during 2000, he quit his job in disgust.
Bush mocked Tucker's appeal for clemency. In an interview with Talk magazine, Bush imitated Tucker's appeal for him to spare her life - pursing his
lips, squinting his eyes, and in a squeaky voice saying, "Please don't kill me." That went too far for former GOP presidential candidate Gary
Bauer, himself an evangelical Christian. "I think it is nothing short of unbelievable that the governor of a major state running for president
thought it was acceptable to mock a woman he decided to put to death," said Bauer.
Bush is no more a Christian than Hitler was. Both used Christianity as a means to bring death and destruction.
No decent right-minded person, let alone Christian, could mock a person condemned to death in such a way. I don't believe in the death penalty anyway
since there have been far too many miscarriages of justice. Bush is even worse - he ordered the deaths of people even when there was evidence of
If you can't give life, then you have no right to give death. At best, Bush is a hypocrite, at worse a Satanist and murderer.
