Appalling Bush Quote

From Andrew Sullivan:

Canadian ex-prime minister Jean Chretien's aide for 30 years has a new book about his boss. I will steer clear of the dense fog of Canadian politics! But one quote stands out, something Bush said to Chretien in March 2002:
"If I catch anyone who leaks in my government... I would like to string them up by the thumbs -- the same way we do with prisoners in Guantanamo."
There you have it. I have only one question. When Bush claims to be Christian and invokes the name of Jesus, he is lying, or is he the victim of really really bad evangelical fundamentalist theology? Which is it?
