I am just wondering what Conservative Evangelicals expected? Did they really think the Republican party would respect them the day after...the election? Did they really think the Republican party wanted a long-term, monogamous relationship?
Okay, enough of that. I just can't believe that various sections of the church have become nothing more than lap dogs to the political system. Politics do not hold the hope for our future, only the Kingdom of God holds any hope for us.
Conservative Christians Criticize Republicans - New York Times: "In the last several weeks, Dr. James C. Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family and one of the most influential Christian conservatives, has publicly accused Republican leaders of betraying the social conservatives who helped elect them in 2004. "
I am not saying we should not be involved in politics. We are part of the American public, but "our" leaders should not go in expecting the political system to be the savior of the US. Let's be realistic if you vote for one side you are supporting certain issues, but neglecting others. And it is vice versa for supporting the other side. I am tired of voting for the lesser of two evils!
