Evidence of Evangelical Shift is Still Slim (Nathan Gonzales, 2/17/08, Real Clear Politics)

Evangelicals may be shifting away from the Republican Party, but a recent poll doesn’t offer compelling evidence to support that claim.

How exactly would the party of abortion, infanticide, Darwinism, etc. sell itself to Christians?

It doesn't. It buys them like they have with the blacks and are now attempting with the Hispanics. Only too late do they realize what was truly sold to the Dems.

The Dems have the social justice crowd (some solid Christians, some nominally so), the black churches, and dinosaurs like Jim Wallis and Tony Campolo. The mainline churches probably vote Democratic, but they really aren't "Christian" anymore. Jesus is too scary for them.

This isn't likely to change, unless the GOP nominates someone as phony as Al Sharpton or Bill Clinton, or someone as nutty as Ron Paul.

OJ may contend that Giuliani might have caused such an abandonment, but he wasn't flip-flopping, and his promises on judicial appointments probably would have held ranks. After all, conservative evangelicals are not going to vote for Hillary under any circumstances, and the same will hold true for Obama.

No one believed Rudy would appoint judges with the exact opposite view of the law from his own. That's why only the Darwinist Right supported him.
