I often wonder why commenters here cite the Christian God as the answer to the perils facing our nation. When I look at the Christian similar faiths it seems to me that they believe God will wipe the slate clean on earth or else take the good guys to somewhere else nice. So why bother to fix our ecology or our economy? This is a fundamental disconnect between Christian conservatism and my own brand. I'm not content to simply let God sort it out. He seems rather indifferent to our plight or our actions.
