George Bush Took Time From a Banquet to Help a Teen Become a Christian-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor: The
email is from shortly after the election of George W. Bush. It
says that President-elect Bush was at a thank-you banquet for his
campaign staff when he met a woman and her teen-age son who
identified herself as a Christian. George Bush asked her son
if he was a believer. The boy said he didn't think so.
George Bush then took 30 minutes to tell him about his own faith and
to pray with him to become a Christian.
The Truth: Mr.
Bush is a professing Born-Again Christian (click

campaign worker's banquet is not true. TruthOrFiction.com has
talked with several people associated with the Bush campaign, some
of whom are Christians, and none of them knows of this story having
happened. Because of the time crunch that was caused by the
drawn-out election results in Florida, there was no thank-you dinner
in Austin for campaign workers. We have been told that there
was a reception to thank volunteers who worked in the campaign, but
Governor Bush was not in attendance.

Yes, my dear girlfriend, we are
living in the end times. How glorious to know that our new
president is a man that doesn't feel the

time to lead a teenager to Christ.
