The GOP -- Not a Club For Christians

Son of Tin Soldier: Today's evangelical Christian considers himself to be a son of Abraham. Furthermore, we realize that Christianity is built on Judaism. If God had not chosen Abraham, there would be no Christianity. Christianity and Judaism are inextricably intertwined. Jesus and all the Apostles were Jews. As Reginald points out, we regard Jews as our kin. Perhaps not Brothers in Christ, but nevertheless our brothers. I hope that never changes. But I sense that Christians are growing tired of the constant attacks by atheists and others who tell us that we must not allow our Christianity to be seen in public. It seems odd that the Jewish people are making common cause with the atheists against a group that is largely pro-Jewish.

In the scramble to make the GOP more diverse, a lot of people are looking at Asian Americans, whom many believe are a natural constituency for the party. I would love it if Asian Americans converted en masse to the Republican Party, but the challenge for Republicans is harder than many appreciate.

President Obama did spectacularly well with Asian Americans, garnering nearly three-quarters of their vote. This runs counter to a lot of conventional wisdom on both the left and the right. On average, Asian American family income is higher and poverty is lower than it is for non-Latino whites....
