Rumors about Bush converting to Catholicism

Apparently, there are rumors that George W. Bush might be thinking of converting to Catholicism.

Interesting. If true, I wonder if the attraction is to a kind of theocon authoritarianism that often shows itself in the Catholic hierarchy. If you want a tradition with a long history, intellectual depth (not incompatible with being basically bullshit), heavy-handed social conservatism, and strength of organization and numbers, conservative Catholicism might be the way to go, after all.
