Kerry quoted Scripture verse at a Baptist church as a means of attacking President Bush

Kerry never mentioned Bush by name during his speech at New North Side Baptist Church, but aimed his criticism at "our present national leadership." Kerry cited Scripture in his appeal for the worshippers, including James 2:14, "What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds?"

"The Scriptures say, what does it profit, my brother, if someone says he has faith but does not have works?" Kerry said. "When we look at what is happening in America today, where are the works of compassion?"

Bush campaign spokesman Steve Schmidt said Kerry's comment "was beyond the bounds of acceptable discourse and a sad exploitation of Scripture for a political attack."

Update: Friends, Kevin Drum just doesn't get it. He can't tell the difference between George Bush describing his self-professed faith and John Kery using Scripture as a MEANS of political attacks. This man needs to examine things more closely. The same goes for Counterspin. And, Pandagon can not even provide a quote where one Republican says he's a better Christian than a Democrat. However, HobbsOnline has a great post and Joshua Claybourn talks about it, too.

The best I've seen so far, comes from LaShawn Barber
