Bob Jones to Bush: Re-election offers reprieve from paganism - link to letter

(Greenville-AP) Nov. 11, 2004 - The president of fundamentalist Bob Jones University has told President Bush he should use his electoral mandate to "appoint many conservative judges" and approve legislation "defined by biblical norm."

Bob Jones III wrote Bush a congratulatory letter that has been posted on the university's Web site.

The letter says with Bush's re-election, "God has graciously granted America - though she doesn't deserve it - a reprieve from the agenda of paganism."

A White House spokesman says Thursday he didn't know whether the president had seen the letter.

Bush spoke at Bob Jones University in February 2000 when he was running for his first term in the White House. At the time, the school banned interracial dating and included anti-Roman Catholic material on its Web site.

The private Christian college has since dropped the dating ban.
