Bible study more important than doing job, says senior Bush appointee
In the commercial, Undersecretary for Benefits in the Department of Veterans Affairs Dan Cooper says his Bible study is more important than doing his job.
COOPER: It's not a matter of carving out time, it really is a matter of saying what is important. Because that's more important than doing the job. The job's going to be there whether I'm there or not.
What is Cooper's job? Well, according to Cooper's official Veterans Administration biography:
As Under Secretary, he directs the Veterans Benefits Administration through regional offices in 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. He is responsible for the administration of benefits provided by the Department to veterans and dependents, including compensation, pension, education, home loan guaranty, vocational rehabilitation, and life insurance.
So, nothing crucial, compared to Bible study.
Background: Yesterday, the Washington Post reported that four generals and three colonels appeared in the Christian Embassy video in uniform, in violation of Defense Department rules. It's not clear whether the filmmakers got permission to shoot inside the Pentagon in the first place.
