Bush is a Christian, that's wonderful. The fact that he spoke at an Islamic center and lit a menorah says nothing to his being a "man of religious tolerance". He just knows that he has to appease all groups as president, not unlike past presidents. He can talk up Christmas and baby Jesus all day long for all I care, I just don't want him trying to pass legislation based on his religious convictions, which is his agenda and goes against what the principles on which this country was founded. It's a little thing called freedom of religion and separation of church and state. The difference between the speeches is that one is directed to people and the other to his nation of christians. Again, I could give a rats ass whether he speaks with religious conviction (or should I say the conviction of his handlers' chosen words for him), as long as he keeps his religious views out of legislation.
