One has to keep wondering, though, if he truly believes any of these religious ideas, or is pandering, as he feels he must, to the vast majority of his constituency.

Religious accommodationism is a poor alternative to sensible debate and rational decision-making, but when you're surrounded by idiots, perhaps the most productive course of action is to attempt to find a middle ground. As the saying goes, you can't please everybody... but I suppose at least you can prevent 95% of the population from rioting in the streets. ;-)
