* 2004 Election was not a religious crusade ... "The truth is that although religious values played a role in the election, so did the war in Iraq, the threat of terrorism, the condition of the economy and the integrity of the two candidates. There is not a shred of evidence that the winning candidate waged a moral crusade. Neither abortion nor school prayer was a campaign issue. President Bush and John Kerry agreed in their opposition to gay marriage."
