It appears that Bush literally thought he was doing God's work and confronting evil while in the White House

This is truly outrageous, and not in the Gem sense. From ABC News:
"The briefs, known as the Worldwide Intelligence Update, were prepared by Rumsfeld and often hand-delivered to Bush, and only circulated among a handful of Pentagon leaders and the president, according to GQ's Robert Draper.

A March 31, 2003 brief cover-sheet depicted a U.S. tank roaring through the desert with a biblical quote from Ephesians: "Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand."

An April 7, 2003 cover sheet depicted an image of Saddam Hussein under a quote from the First Epistle of Peter: "It is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men."

I think that this is offensive beyond belief and that it should be a very large heads up, a very large red flag, that we really, really, need to investigate Bush and Cheney in order to find out just what the hell went on in the past eight years. And prosecute them for it.
