Self-Identified Christian. Those who identify as Christians but are, in fact, not. Generally "practice their piety before others in order to be seen by them." (Mathew 6:5)

Propagation node: I like SIC for its euphony ("Sounds like ....").

My personal theology: It's the height of hypocrisy to parade one's religious beliefs as a means toward political power. And it's the height of arrogance to believe that one is "saved," let alone to say it, let alone run for office on that basis. Only God can know if we are saved. It isn't up to us to say anything about it. Hope and belief are not knowledge. "Self-identified" points this out. Bush says he's a Christian, but "by their fruits shall ye know them." (Matthew 7:16) We don't have to take his word for it.
