Conservatives better begin to decide on a short term and a long term plan in order to survive. Time to prioritize. You know, I'm thinking of the same problem that plagues Christian churches (as an example). Those churches which exclude people who have not adopted all the tenets of the particular denomination - won't invite them to worship, won't welcome them to join bible studies, etc - will never survive. I'm not suggesting that my church (Missouri Synod Lutheran! - pretty conservative) adopt different theology. It doesn't. However, we open our doors for all who seek God. And, many guests DO decide to "live here". We are stronger for it. You want to survive? Don't turn away those who have conservative beliefs - no one is pure.

Practicing your faith according to the holy Word of the bible is not a problem, it is called faith, reverence, obedience, humility and worship. What you suggest is a watered down version of godless ego stroking and tolerance of sin that promices a one way ticket to destruction on this earth and in the hereafter.
If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything.

Keeping the door open is not the same as allowing everyone to the communion table [at least most Mo-Syn churches still have 'close communion' where only the confirmed are welcome to partake].

Conservatives try to have 'close communion' but the more 'moderate' aka liberal faction starts screaming "that's not 'fair'" and in an attempt to 'do the right thing' the communion gates have been opened under the belief that 'no one but God really knows a man's heart.' Well, God expects us to be FRUIT INSPECTORS! If a person doesn't speak, act, write, govern, live as a Conservative, then that person is NOT a Conservative and does not belong in 'close communion' with those who are, do and 'be' Conservative. "Fair" does not equate to "Truth."

What can you do with a man like Chris Christie?

The answer, according to many with the conservative movement: Throw him overboard. And while we're at it, let's toss the gays over the side too.

The popular governor of New Jersey has certainly angered many conservatives, including this humble scribe. During the crucial final days of the presidential election, Christie didn't merely embrace President Obama, he all but endorsed him.

Then, during the congressional fight over the disaster-relief bill for victims of superstorm Sandy -- a bill with more pork in it than a Jimmy Dean factory -- Christie denounced Republicans...
