  1. One of the main reasons why some of us who used to be republicans can no longer with good conscience associate with that party. Unfortunately there are not a lot of options for independents.

  2. Uhh… that article is all about evangelical Christianity’s drift AWAY from the Republican party the same way as it abandoned Carter… Kind of the opposite of your headline there.

  3. “Some might compare the religious right to a snake,” he said. “We may be in our hole right now, but we can come out and bite you at any time.”

    Have truer words ever been spoken?

  4. Hopefully the Democratic party won’t seduce the evangelicals. If that were the case they’d all just feel used which they have been. Maybe they’ll even stay away from the polls for a few years. That’d be nice.
