John 16:3 or 3:16?

According to his book Blinded by Might: Can the Religious Right Save America, syndicated columnist Cal Thomas said George Bush (senior) talked of his faith and how meaningful it was to him in front of a religious broadcasters convention around 1990. He said he didn't wear it on his shirt sleeve, but it was there none-the-less. He shared his favorite Bible verse -
John 16:3, "For God so loved the world..."

Of course, the speech writer meant to have George Bush say he was quoting John 3:16. But neither he nor the president had enough familiarity with the text to know the difference. So, what does John 16:3 actually say?

John 16:3, "They will do these things unto you, because they have not known the Father or me."

The Holy Spirit works in mysterious ways!
