The Jesus Factor (#2212)
Following a presidential election where "moral values" were identified as the deciding factor for many American voters, FRONTLINE asks how closely President Bush's religious views mirror those of the country's politically influential evangelical movement. An evangelical Christian, Bush has something in common with the 46 percent of Americans who describe themselves as being "born again" or having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Often the president has recounted praying about major decisions facing the nation. But what do we actually know about the rudiments of George Bush's faith and to what extent do his spiritual beliefs impact or influence his political decision-making? [56 minutes]
