(Off-camera) Is it literally true, the bible?

PRESIDENT GEORGE W BUSH (UNITED STATES)

You know, probably not. You know, the idea that – no, I’m not a literalist, but I think you can learn a lot from it.

They may think they’re religious and they may play like they’re religious. But I don’t think they are religious. They’re not praying to the God I pray to, the God of peace and love.
