God and the Republicans - Ah,Togetherness
"Religious party"! Gag me with a spoon. While it is easy to understand the GOP's use of God, for God to permit the Republicans to adopt him is a different matter. God must be blind...and deaf. Was away in the high desert for a few days and didn't catch historian Kevin Phillips' article "How GOP Became God's Own Party" until this morning. "Now that the GOP has been transformed by the rise of the South, the trauma of terrorism and George W. Bush's conviction that God wanted him to be president, a deeper conclusion can be drawn: The Republican Party has become the first religious party in U.S. history."
