GOD and the GOP

I came across this article today from Kathleen Parker, Washington Post, and found it fascinating.

Buried in the article is this research, which I suggest looking at first. It helps, I think, in understanding the premise of the article a bit better from the get go.

I have said for a long time that the religious right has caused the GOP's slow decay. What with the likes of Dobson, Schlafly and others who are each irredeemably counter intuitive in 2008, the GOP has driven more and more folks to register independent. One CAN be conservative without being a nutball, but the fact is that the GOP has gained its nutball status because of the religious right.

Ironically, all the more reason that many of us are mystified by the Prop 8 results.

What do you think?
