When comparing the two presidential candidates, I think their different approaches to their personal faiths is interesting.

President Bush is open about his faith. The values of it guide him in making decisions. He speaks of the strength he gets from prayer, both his own and being the recipient of the prayers of others.

Kerry speaks of believing in the principles of his faith, yet does not let his beliefs interfere with his politics.

To me, Kerry has compartmentalized and trivialized his faith. You can tell me what you believe, but your actions reveal what's really in your heart.

Although Bush is a confessed Christian, I don't sense that most atheists feel threatened by this fact. He has been steady in what he has said and done, and I also think he is an example that a leader can be a committed Christian and not turn the USA into a theocracy, which is the rant of folks like the ACLU with rhetoric like "Christian Taliban."

I agree.

What else can I say?
