The GOP -- Not a Club For Christians

The GOP needs to decide if they are a political party of religious commonality; or a political party with similar political views. If it's religion, then your observation holds true, and the party will fade away due to lack of members as it offends and repells non-Christians. If it's political, then they need to couch all their stands, and their rituals, in political terms that various groups can agree with. We beleive in a federal government that is forever limited to spending no more than 10%, or 5% or 1% of the national GDP. We beleive in a federal government that is restricted to a maximum of 10,000 pages of legislative rules and regulations; regardless of how many departments and agencies there are. Something of that sort.

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....
