Sucking up to somebody else's gawd?

I'm sorry... all this very public faux-religiosity... just smacks of pandering to me... man bites gawd
Thanks to the miracle of Canadian diversity, an out-of-place leader trying to look at ease while wearing someone else’s religious headgear can come across as open-minded and accessible to a broader range of multicultural voters.

“It’s strange but true,” says Dr. Siemiatycki. “There are some places of worship that leaders can’t enter, and some they can’t enter often enough.”
You've gotta wonder... does this sort of thing actually fool anybody? I mean, they wouldn't do it if it didn't work, right?
