In a New York Times OpEd titled The Divine Miss M, Mr. Bruni writes:

What I find most fascinating about Michele Bachmann — and there are
many, many more where she came from — is that she presents herself as a
godly woman, humbly devoted to her Christian faith. I’d like to meet
that god, and I’d like to understand that Christianity.

Mr. Bruni also notes:

Speaking of gay marriage, both the Reform and Conservative branches of
Judaism in this country have embraced it, and the Episcopal Church in
the United States has developed a special blessing
for same-sex couples. Leaders of these denominations would tell you not
that they’re flouting Judeo-Christian tradition but that they’re doing
full justice to their faiths, which hinge on more than reflexive
fidelity to chosen passages from ancient writings. They hinge on the
human intellect and its ability to filter timeless values through modern
understanding.
