Much is made of the role of faith in politics. It certainly did Bush no harm in getting to the top. Whereas in Britain at times it worked against Blair who faced accusations of his faith clouding his political judgement. Perhaps Europeans are simply more cynical to religion in their leaders?
Maybe once Blair has sorted out the Middle East (ahem) he can get his own cable show in the US to help supplement his lecture income. He can urge his viewers to smite the heathens and to donate to his just and righteous cause.
I can imagine his sales-pitch now...
'Come join me on the path the salvation. It is the right thing to do.'
'Every tenth caller gets a free knighthood.'
