G.O.P. Is Rethinking Stance on Gay Marriage
WASHINGTON — It was only five years ago that opposition to gay marriage was so strong that Republicans explicitly turned to the issue as a way to energize conservative voters. Yet today, as the party contemplates the task of rebuilding itself, some Republicans say the issue of gay marriage may be turning into more of a hindrance than a help.

Steve Schmidt, who was the senior strategist to Senator John McCain of Arizona during his presidential campaign, said in a speech and an interview that Republicans were in danger of losing these younger voters unless the party comes to appreciate how issues like gay marriage resonate, or do not resonate, with them.

“Republicans should re-examine the extent to which we are being defined by positions on issues that I don’t believe are among our core values, and that put us at odds with what I expect will become, over time, if not a consensus view, then the ...

The only problem with third parties is that they are run by the same kind of people who run the Dems and the Repubs: fallen politicians.

Politics and politicians cannot save us. The government cannot save us. Better laws cannot save us - the best law ever given wasn't enough to save Israel.

Only faith in Jesus can save us, and only by his grace.

What's annoying and weird is that the Democratic party's dash to the left in recent years has effectively stretched the whole political spectrum in that direction, causing our own Republican party to stretch in order to accomodate this change in the political landscape. Conservatives want to stay the course while everyone else wants to move more or less to the left (be more pro-choice, relax imigration policy, become more secular, etc.). Truely maddening.

I voted McCain last election even though he was my FIFTH choice for my party's nomination (how does that happen unless the party drifts?--I sure haven't).

Maybe a third party is worth a try soon.

My heart is breaking over the regress of the Republican Party. May God give us strength to hold on during these challenging times. I know that God will honor that which is right and noble, and the RP must not coward down to political correctness.

How fast can u say 3rd party!? But 3rd parties can wreck & wreak havoc. Politics would be more complicated until the "man" arrives. As to Price Charles, I see the Repubs letting down everyone, beside just evangelicals, due to their bad administration. I voted McCain as the lesser of 2 weevils (yeah I know that argument) but a vote seemed a stronger act than no vote. The writing was on the wall way before the vote. Not that Obama would win but that the Repubs had no strong candidate.

Rom 1:20 For ever since the creation of the world HIS invisible nature and attributes, that is, HIS eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made (HIS handiworks). So [men] are WITHOUT EXCUSE [ALTOGETHER WITHOUT ANY DEFENSE OR JUSTIFICATION],

21 Because when they KNEW and RECOGNIZED HIM AS GOD, they did not honor and glorify HIM AS GOD or give HIM thanks. BUT INSTEAD they became futile and godless IN their THINKING [WITH VAIN IMAGININGS, FOOLISH REASONING, and STUPID SPECULATIONS] and their SENSELESS MINDS were darkened

28 And so, since they DID NOT SEE FIT TO ACKNOWLEDGE GOD or APPROVE OF HIM or CONSIDER HIM WORTH THE KNOWING, GOD gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things NOT PROPER OR DECENT but loathsome,

29 Until they were filled ... with every kind of unrighteousness, iniquity, grasping and covetous greed, and malice. [They were] full of envy and jealousy, murder, strife, deceit and treachery, ill will and cruel ways. [They were] secret backbiters and gossipers,




Veritas Vincit !!!

"IN" Christ, KK

Over the last few years I feel like I'm watching our huge ship-of-state slowly capsize (rolling over on its LEFT side, where all the weight is, of course!).

I think the republicans are trying to get back in power. I think the dems are going to do everything in their power to stay in power. They are going to tell everyone what they want to hear. It's not their beliefs or our beliefs that are important. It's about the power. I put my trust and faith in Jesus. God will take care of me and my family regardless who resides in Washington DC. I just can't get around the fact that gays have become so prevalent in everyday thought. It's quiet preplexing...

"This does not mean, Republicans said, that most Americans are suddenly embracing the idea of same-sex couples going to the chapel. It is more that, for a lot of these Americans, gay marriage is not something they spend a lot of time worrying about, or even thinking about."

Just like abortion...

thats interesting barry, who do you think went flaky ? was it the republicans disapointing the christians or the christians proving to be less reliable than the republicans needed, ie would the republicans been faithful if they had thought that their commitment to the evangelicals would reap a political reward ie were the evangelicals a disapointment to the republicans ? i notice a lot of evangelicals voted democrat in the past

When the Republican party and the "evangelicals" married I thought it became a core value. That and lip service the republicans have given to "evangelicals" about abortion in order to secure their money and votes!!!
