-The Bible certainly is one of, if not --

I mean, it is the book.

-Let's pray together, may we? -Yes.

-I believe in God. I am Christian.

I'm a Protestant.

I'm very proud of it -- Presbyterian, to be exact.

I'm Presbyterian.

Boy, that's down the middle of the road, folks,

in all fairness.

I mean, Seventh Day Adventists I don't know about.

I have great relationship with God.

I have great relationship with the evangelicals.

And I go to church a lot.

Always on Christmas, always on Easter,

always when there's a major occasion,

and during the Sundays.

I'm a Sunday church person.

I like to do the right thing where I don't have

to actually ask for forgiveness.

When we go in church and when I drink my little wine,

which is about the only wine I drink,

and have my little cracker,

I guess that's a form of asking for forgiveness.

And I do that as often as possible,

because I feel cleansed.

We were having fun when I said, "I drink the wine.

I eat the cracker."

If I do something wrong, I think I just try and make it right.

I don't bring God into that picture.

-My wife and I pray for you. -Thank you.

Well, I need it probably more than anybody in this room.

You can stay if you want to,

because you need the prayer more than I do, I think.

I want to just pray for Arnold if we can, for those ratings.

I can understand the evangelicals

to a certain extent saying,

"Well, maybe he's not as nice as we want him to be."

But they also want to see the country be great.

-Why do you think those voters are drawn to you?

-Well, I'm Protestant.

I'm Presbyterian, which means something.

Maybe he's not as perfect on the Bible, but I did go

to Sunday school for many years, I want to tell you.

I get sent Bibles by a lot of people.

-Where are all those Bibles anyhow now?

-Well, actually, we keep them at a certain place --

a very nice place.

My second-favorite book of all time.

What's my first favorite book?

-The Bible! -The Bible!

-The Bible is special.

The Bible, the more you see it,

the more you read it, the more incredible it is.

-Are you an Old Testament guy or a New Testament guy?

-Probably equal.

-Proverbs, the chapter, "Never bend to envy."

I've had that thing all of my life,

where your people are bending to envy.

2 Corinthians, right?

2 Corinthians 3:17.

That's the whole ballgame.

There's no way I would ever do anything

to do negative to a Bible.

God is the ultimate.

I mean, God created this. -Yeah.

-And, you know, here's the Pacific Ocean right behind us.

So nobody, no thing -- no, there's nothing like God.
