From Yahoo News:

“In an election where voters said moral values were the primary issue, Bush cautioned against suggestions that the United States was becoming politically divided by religion. ‘I will be your president regardless of your faith, and I don’t expect you to agree with me necessarily on religion,’ Bush said. ‘As a matter of fact, no president should ever try to impose religion on our society. …The great thing that unites is the fact you can worship freely if you choose, and if you — you don’t have to worship.'” [Yahoo News]

Comments CM reader Steve Mason:

These do not sound like the words of someone seeking to establish a theocracy in the US. Whatever Bush’s faults and mixed premises –and he has many — statements like the following increase my confidence that voting for him was the right choice and that, philosophically, he is not planning pogroms against non-believers.

We certainly hope so. Let’s wait and see.
