Salon.com Arts & Entertainment | The passion of the Bush

You might have to watch an ad to get here, but it's worth it. And check out the Frontline video link, too, it's quality.

Reason #592 why I'm studying religion: In the 2000 election, the single most significant factor among voters was their frequent attendance at church, synagogue, or mosque.

I don't (seriously) doubt that G.W. Bush had an authentic conversion experience, and is acting out of genuine religious commitment. His tenacity with regards to some seriously flawed evangelical theology, though, is what bothers me. Well, that, and his inability to speak in coherent, logical sentences. Hmmm...my two pet peeves, ignorance and bad grammar, neatly packaged in the one man with access to the most power in the world...
