The greatest hoax ever sold

This ought to do it:

More than five years after President Bush created the Office of Faith-Based Initiatives, the former second-in-command of that office is going public with an insider's tell-all account that portrays an office used almost exclusively to win political points with both evangelical Christians and traditionally Democratic minorities.
The office's primary mission, providing financial support to charities that serve the poor, never got the presidential support it needed to succeed, according to the book.

... He says some of the nation's most prominent evangelical leaders were known in the office of presidential political strategist Karl Rove as "the nuts."
"National Christian leaders received hugs and smiles in person and then were dismissed behind their backs and described as 'ridiculous,' 'out of control,' and just plain 'goofy,'" Kuo writes.

These evil SOBs are less religious than we are. At least we have souls. These people worship power and money. There's an old saying ...
