Bush can't resist using the Death ofJohn Paul II for political ends

Here is part of President Bush's Statement on the Death of Pope John Paul II
Throughout the West, John Paul's witness reminded us of our obligation to build a culture of life in which the strong protect the weak.
Did John Paul ever use the term culture of life? I doubt it. I do know that John Paul opposed the war in Iraq, and he opposed the death penalty, two of Bush's most strongly supported policies. Apparently it was more important to Bush to keep the corpse of Terri Schiavo operating than actually to save lives. Culture of Life indeed.
