Pierce Bush is facing increased scrutiny for some comments he made in which he compared American Christians to Muslim terrorists.
Bush is the latest member of the infamous Bush family to run for higher office, as he seeks election in Texas’s 22nd Congressional District.
Cary Cheshire of Texas Scorecard noted that Bush wrote a letter to the Houston Chronicle, criticizing the Roman Catholic Church’s election of Pope Benedict XVI.
“With the election of Pope Benedict XVI, Christians around the world will most likely not be able to look forward to needed reforms within the Catholic Church. There are two major areas of reform that are needed to accommodate our progressive world society,” said Bush.
