World leaders have been using their religion to influence their decisions since the dawn of time, Bush is no different. Its not for me to say where his true feelings lie, but I think if he was really that religious he'd be more peaceful and giving than he really is. I think the fact that he's increased the amount of religious imagery in his speeches is an attempt to appeal to religious conservatives and give his actions an air of legitimacy. Some people will actually believe that God tells Bush what decisions to make.
I question the religious piety of anyone who actively seeks a position of secular power.
