A Wall Street Journal piece outlines the faith journey of George W. Bush. Notably, he has switched from church to church, attending a Presbyterian church in Midland, Texas and an Episcopalian church in Houston, before moving to the Methodist church after marrying.

Howard Dean left his local Episcopalian church due to its political opposition to the erection of a bike path and moved on to a Congregationalist congregation. I think that leaving a church because you find it hypocritical is understandable.

I wonder whether anything so principled affected the faith voyage of George W. Bush. Did his move from church to church out of convenience, seeking the congregation that was closest to the house, or did they go where the (people who had) money were and treat religion as a social club?
