Bush's problematic use of religious language

A great essay in the Nation on Bush's Religious Language traces the evangelical/political history of the Shrub and puts some of his more extreme utterances into context. As a Sunday school lesson, allow me to quote this profound statement from the article: "True prayer does not pretend to tell God what we want Him to do but rather asks that God tell us what He wishes us to do. We do not pray in order to enlist God in our ranks but to examine ourselves, to change and to do God's will."
I found this from a post on Body and Soul, where Jeanne remarks on the good and the bad in the Democrat's use of theological and moral references in the past months.
