President Bush on Tuesday: "I think it is very important for people who are serving to make sure there's a separation of church and state. "

Today's New York Times

"INDIANAPOLIS, June 17 - President Bush's re-election campaign took its effort to enlist churches in turning out conservative voters to the annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention this week, urging pastors to do everything short of risking their churches' tax-exempt status to support the president's re-election." (Emphasis added.)
