March 10 issue â€” Whenever a president speaks openly of his religious faith, citizens want to know how that faith affects his political priorities. And so we look for clues. But the lines between religious convictions and public policy are seldom clear, even in retrospect.
Consider: For the past 10 years the worldâ€™s most powerful nation has been led by white, Southern, churchgoing evangelical Protestantsâ€”Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
