General William Boykin
Below is an excerpt from Fareed Zakaria’s October 27th Newsweek column:
…Boykin routinely told audiences that God elevated George W. Bush to the presidency. “Why is this man in the White House? The majority of Americans did not vote for him,” he would say. “I tell you this morning that he’s in the White House because God put him there.” Boykin now explains that he believes God routinely decides American elections and has done the same thing for “Bill Clinton and other presidents.” This is surely the first time a conservative evangelical has argued that Clinton’s election was caused by divine intervention.
General Boykin sounds like he’s off his rockers; and to think he was recently appointed to a senior Defense Department post.
