According to NewsMax, ex-Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, has described in an advance copy of his memoirs how he was put off by President Bush's constant references to his Christian faith.
"What bothered me, and in a certain way made me suspicious despite the relaxed atmosphere, was again and again in our discussions how much this president described himself as 'God-fearing,'" Schroeder wrote, adding he is a firm believer in the separation of church and state.
"We rightly criticize that in most Islamic states, the role of religion for society and the character of the rule of law are not clearly separated," Schroeder wrote. "But we fail to recognize that in the USA, the Christian fundamentalists and their interpretation of the Bible have similar tendencies."
It should not be a surprise to anyone that this nominal Protestant has problems with those that truly embrace their Christian faith. Schroeder has been married four times, so it is rather obvious how seriously he takes a vow. It seems everytime he divorced, the next wife was waiting in the wings. His present wife is the result of an affair while he was still married to wife number three. The four marriages heve earned him the nickname "Audi chancellor" (four rings like the car symbol).
Then there is the whole Gazprom affair, which pretty much shows Schroeder is a firm believer in the separation of integrity and state office.
Finally to make the ludicrous comparison of Christian fundamentalists and their interpretation of the Bible having similar tendencies to Islamomaical muslim bobbleheads simply confirms Gerhard as the looney leftist wingnut he always has been. He tries to smear God fearing Christianity by comparing it to those who murder, torture and behead anyone who disagrees with them. Perhaps that is why he is no longer chancellor.
