If Christians had their act together, we wouldn't be talking about Obama's second term and we wouldn't have had Romney as a nominee. The reason the GOP has "a Christian problem" is because Christians have a Christian problem. Politically active evangelical Christians know more about the "gospel of conservatism" than they know about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Christians need to get back to the basics. "... the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, they will gather around them teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge the duties of your ministry."

I think you misunderstood my comment. You definitely misconstrued it.

Of course, I addressed my comments to Christians and you're not one and that's ok.
One of the largest elephants in the GOP's post-election room is the fate of Christian and other social conservatives. Party honchos can't just wish this problem away -- or, maybe they can.

There has been increasing hostility toward Christian involvement in politics, and the animus hasn't been solely from the left. To be sure, Democrats have taken the lead, demonizing conservative Christians as science-challenged scolds who don't care about women's "reproductive rights," but there is plenty of antipathy from certain elements within the Republican Party, as well.

Many establishment and some libertarian Republicans have long looked upon Christian conservatives with mild, condescending...
