Ex Cathedra

One of the problems with having a president who seems to believe he's carrying out God's work is that you can never quite tell when he's making a divinely inspired Ex Cathedra type proclamation or if he's providing a somewhat less authoritative theological edict. Perhaps this is something the White House press could ask Scott McClellan - maybe the transcripts could be labelled or something.

Anyway, yesterday in Hershey Bush apparently told us that some people, the evil Doers, have no soul. I don't know if he was truly denying the existence of their immortal souls, a generally accepted tenet of all Christian denominations as far as I know, or if he was just lamenting the lack of James Brown in their music collections. We really need to clear up the confusion here.
