Few conservatives hold religious prejudices that could compete with the liberal prejudice against religion.
Most conservatives I know are tolerant of all beliefs, including atheism. They wouldn’t think of mocking what others believe
Oh sure, I believe you. This is from the Power Of Christ thread. Do you know what cognitive dissonance is?

Your appearance at T-Nation - vulgar, obscene, perverse, morally liberal.
You frequent the sex forums and defend it as justifiable for Christians to play with sex. Sex is great! I love it with my wife. You, on the otherhand, don’t care if it’s man and woman, woman and woman, man and man, woman man and man and man, etc…
Of course, this is just the appearance. However, the Bible tells us that it should stay with Man and wife. The appearance is that you don’t care what God’s word says - you’ll do what you want to do. [/quote]
Wow, that sounds really tolerant of all beliefs.
If somebody wants to believe that every word in the bible should be interpretted literally, that’s their problem. The problem within the Republican party is that a lot of these kooks are now running the party and making decisions for the rest of the party and the rest of the country, that do not share their views.
Hell it’s no skin off my nose, in fact I love it. I think most Americans will find the views of Christian extremists politically offensive (banning contraception, banning abortion with zero exceptions, banning pornography, etc). The more people get exposed to these views the more they will reject them.
What’s relevant to this thread is that religious extremists are fragmenting the GOP, and may very well make it impossible for them to win at the polls in the future.
