David Kuo talked about his book, Tempting Faith: An Inside Story of Political Seduction, published by The Free Press. Mr. Kuo served President Bush as the deputy director of the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. He said that the Bush administration is not sincere about compassionate conservatism and, instead, is manipulating Christian conservatives for political gain. He charged that public funds allocated to the Office of Faith-Based Initiatives were used to finance Republican campaign events in 2004. Mr. Kuo, an evangelical Christian and a Republican, said he believes Christians should take a two-year “fast” from political causes and instead support charities that help the poor and the sick. After his presentation the author responded to audience members' questions. close
