George W Bush Defends Religious Liberty at Commencement Speech

During a commencement ceremony at Southern Methodist University’s (SMU) former President George W. Bush gave a full-throated defense of religious liberty.

At his first commencement speech since he left the White House, Bush tried to instill a message of hope for the future into the graduates, but he also defended our liberties.

“And finally, you can be hopeful because there is a loving god,” he said. “Whether you agree with that statement is your choice, it is not your government’s choice.”

“It is essential to this nation’s future that we remember that the freedom to worship who we want, and how we want — or not to worship at all — is a core belief of our founding.”

“I’ve made my choice,” he said. “I believe that the almighty’s grace and unconditional love will sustain you.”

Exactly right, W. Let us all make our choice free of government coercion. And keep Obama’s Christian-hating friends out of our way.
