I wrote yesterday April 17, 2007, of the phenomenon of George W. Bush as the new High Priest of United States.

Now today, Dan Froomkin blogs in the Washington Post on what I call Bush's role as HIGH PRIEST for the nation. Froomkin gives the URL for the text of Bush's "sermon" to the grieving students, friends and relatives at Virginia Tech. Froomkin remarks that Bush sounds more like a preacher than a president.

"Here is the text of his nine-minute remarks, in which he sounded more like a preacher than a president.

"In this time of anguish, I hope you know that people all over this country are thinking about you, and asking God to provide comfort for all who have been affected," he said.

"Across the town of Blacksburg and in towns all across America, houses of worship from every faith have opened their doors and have lifted you up in prayer. People who have never met you are praying for you; they're praying for your friends who have fallen and who are injured. There's a power in these prayers, real power. In times like this, we can find comfort in the grace and guidance of a loving God. . . .

"May God bless you. May God bless and keep the souls of the lost. And may His love touch all those who suffer and grieve."
