.- Karl Rove, who has been in the news recently because of his pending resignation from President Bush’s staff, is back in the news again, but this time to say that he is, in fact, a Christian.

Rove’s statement comes in response to persistent rumors instigated by Christopher Hitchens and spread by the Rev. Bill Moyers, as well as a host of bloggers, that Rove is an agnostic. 

According to a statement given to Deal Hudson, the president of the Morley Institute for Church & Culture, Rove says that he is an Episcopalian.

The key political advisor to President Bush moved to put the speculation surrounding his faith to rest by sending the announcement to Hudson.

Rove reportedly said, "I am a believing Christian who attends his neighboring Episcopal parish church. People have taken out of context a quote in which I express admiration for the deep faith of colleagues that so clearly informs their lives as a statement I am not a believer.  I am; just not as good a Christian as some very fine people I have been honored to call friends and colleagues."
