Many religious conservatives thought this might be the year of an evangelical comeback, when voters would throw President Obama out because of his support of same-sex marriage and abortion, and his health plan's birth control mandate. It didn't work out t

""But today, there really is no single leader or group of leaders who are directing the religious conservative movement," he says. "And so it seems to many to be splintered or directionless"

+++++++++++++++++ Gee...maybe they could work on themselves?

Now 1/5 of the American population identifies itself as "atheist, agnostic, non-theist, or non-religious"....and this group is continuing to grow. This election was an overwhelming mandate to keep church and state separate. The tiny minority of Evangelicals grows ever tinier, although their voices are magnified by FuxNoise and other rightwing media. They've been living in a Dream State, pandered to by politicians, who assured them of their Xtian values. Now, they're experiencing a backlash...I just hope they take their medicine and disappear.

'.....Obama won 95 percent of black Protestants, three-quarters of Hispanic Catholics, 7 out of 10 Jewish voters and 70 percent of religiously unaffiliated voters, which is the fastest-growing segment of "religion."'

Atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, skeptics, are going to GROW LARGER as a group, in EACH election - as MORE YOUNG PEOPLE are turning that way. People who are LEAVING their Religion, are NOT, as in the past, "changing to another Religion"; rather, they are turning away from Religion entirely. They are NOT likely to go back to Religion.
Many of these people consider themselves "Spiritual", but are not and will never be, affiliated with any Religion.
Repukelicans are depending on a base that is SHRINKING. Their adherents are actually dying out. That is why the Repukelicans consistently try to STEAL every election by foul means - it is about the only way they can APPEAR to have votes in any numbers!

Repukelicans are doomed to be a tiny minority party, of no more significance than the Whigs or the KKK - but like the KKK, still capable of making trouble!
For a viable two-party system, we need a party to challenge from the LEFT - a Socialist Green Party. The Dems are not "Left" and certainly Obama is not a "Socialist", but a Centrist!
The American People are really in support of the issues of the Left, altho they don't know it and are a bit antsy about the very word, "Socialism"! in a way that Europeans, for example, are not... The result of Right-wing propaganda making the words "Left" and "Socialist" have a bad rep...

Trouble with the Christian religion is that it has had nearly two thousand years to become corrupted, splintered, obscured and deformed. Better to be spiritual without all those "blistering barnacles" to embarrass one.

Maybe God is trying to tell them something...
