On November 11, 2004 Associated Press reported, "Bob Jones III, president of the fundamentalist college that bears his name, has told President Bush he should use his electoral mandate to appoint conservative judges and approve legislation 'defined by biblical norm.' 'In your re-election, God has graciously granted America – though she doesn't deserve it – a reprieve from the agenda of paganism,' Jones wrote Bush in a congratulatory letter posted on the university's Web site. 'You have been given a mandate. ... Put your agenda on the front burner and let it boil. You owe the liberals nothing. They despise you because they despise your Christ,' said the letter, dated Nov. 3. A White House spokesman said he didn't know whether the president had seen the letter."
