Christian Right Failed to
Sway Voters on Issues

New York Times, by Laurie Goodstein

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/11/2012 4:31:42 AM

Christian conservatives, for more than two decades a pivotal force in American politics, are grappling with Election Day results that repudiated their influence and suggested that the cultural tide — especially on gay issues — has shifted against them. They are reeling not only from the loss of the presidency, but from what many of them see as a rejection of their agenda. They lost fights against same-sex marriage in all four states where it was on the ballot, and saw anti-abortion-rights Senate candidates defeated and two states vote to legalize marijuana for recreational use.

Worthless. It´s the NYT gloating and snarking.

If Christian conservatives or purists did not vote for a Mormon, or for a good man who is too "moderate" for them, then they essentially voted for a man who espouses the views of Jeremiah Wright, one of Louis Farrakhan´s best friends. It absolutely boggles my mind.

Perhaps most voters saw the Christian right being represented by moron politicians, like Akin and Murdoch. It would be difficult for one to not make that association.

Idiotic words emanating from the mouths of those who are extremely stupid have ramifications. That is a fact of life.

In the Old Testament, when Israel began to turn away from God and began embracing the Idols of other nations, they didn´t actually abandon God, they still worshiped Him, but started worshiped other gods along with God. They brought other gods along side God, as if to cover all the bases, but never committing to any of them completely.
Because Idols serve man, when the gods of other nations were merged with God, it lowered and devalued God into another servant to man. Instead of the people serving God, God and all other gods became servants of the people; to their desire, wishes and wants. Bad idea!

The majority of Americans who claim to believe in God today, don´t worship Him exclusively. They may believe in Him but they also worship the gods of pleasure, wealth, possessions, entertainment, pride and a host of other self-indulgent gods. Worship of government can also be included in that list, the provider and enabler of a slothful self-indulgent lifestyle.

If this last election is an indicator of anything, it´s an indicator that God has turned America over to its own self-indulgence and the gods that encourage it. God has pulled away from being our servant and retains His positioned of deity, controlling our future.

God says He is a jealous God, he will not tolerate the allegiance to any other gods without discipline or judgment. America wants it all and wants it now and will end up with nothing because the gods it wants to worship are destructive.

I think the gay community was well organized and succeeded in painting opponents of gay civil marriage as being opponents of happy families. The liberal mainstream media had a field day with the rape mis-statements from two Republican candidates.

When one has no Christian values, anything goes....see gay marriage, etc. Sadly many churches have decided that the Bible and its teachings are just "suggestions or guides"....see Episcopal church and now many black churches.

The secular and progressives have no real moral compass...."I can do anything I want at anytime."

Those who are Christians and not just Christians in name only will not vacillate nor change their beliefs. The media in this country promote anything but Christian values....tells you alot about the on-air personalities. It is not the Christian right as the headline states. For Christians there is no Tight or Left but just plainly and simply Christian values as stated in the Bible. No such thing as a partial Christian.....I believe in God but I also endorse and support all sorts of behaviors that God finds offensive.

Leave to someone who appears to be liberal Jewess to tell us what the ´Christian Right´ did or didn´t do.

The issues had NOTHING to do with Christianity or Conservatism´s ´right wing´ but has everything to do with common sense, self-responsibility and saving a government from killing itself and it´s citizens.

The GOP candidates only talked about abortion when asked about it. This campaign should have been strictly about the disastrous math we´re facings as a country. But, that would have worked against Obama so the press changed the subject: Binders, free birth control, the big beloved yellow bird, Senate candidates trying to grapple with ethical abortion issues better suited for an ethics debate at a seminary.

I´m as pro life as anyone. At this point so many millions of women have had abortions, many without a full understanding of what they were agreeing to. I believe the politics of making them examine that choice every election is never going to end well. Those women will understandably cling to the belief that the didn´t end the life of their own child.

And here´s the thing. You can´t unknowingly sin. If they were told by people thy loved and trusted that it was just a blobs of cells then they are blameless. You are responsible to God to the extent which he has revealed himself to you.

In the four Ultra-Blue states where pseudomarriage squaked through, the pro-man-woman marriage totals were HIGHER than those of the Republicans at the top of the ticket. Traditional marriage didn´t drag the Republicans down: if they had been "wedded to" real marriage as an issue, they would have improved their totals. The combined voice might even have pulled them over the top.

Same wih prolife. More people claim the "prolife" label than either Democrat or RTepublican. If there were a coherent, strong, confident pro-life, pro-marriage-sanity, pro-fiscal-sanity, no-nonsense ticket I think it could have beat the pants off of Obama-Biden.

Those secularists and atheists who are fully onboard with the moral decline of this nation could NEVER be persuaded by anyone of faith, no matter what. Two totally and completely different animals, apples and oranges. It´s certainly not any Christians place or task to "save" anyone nor could they if they so desired. Only the Creator God can do that and He makes it perfectly clear in His word that not all who learn/know about Him will come. He is implicit in His approach to those and it is spelled out very clearly in Romans 1:18-32. Know it and ignore it at your own peril.

Brendan Eich is gone. The creator of JavaScript and co-founder of mozilla.org has quit as Mozilla’s CEO, forced out by the uproar over a donation he made six years ago to a ballot measure against gay marriage. There’s no record of Eich discriminating against gay employees—“I never saw any kind of behavior or attitude from him that was not in line with Mozilla’s values of inclusiveness,” says the company’s chairwoman, Mitchell Baker. In fact, last week, Eich pledged, I am committed to ensuring that Mozilla is, and will remain, a place that includes and supports everyone, regardless of sexual orientation,

I subscribe to the Sportsman Channel because, as an incorrigible Canadian, I wanted the NHL network, although I keep it in part because of NFL RedZone. And so last night I found myself in the sports tier of my cable television package, watching the debut of the network´s newest show, Amazing America with Sarah Palin. Professionally making money from grassroots Republicans inevitably involves trolling liberals, something in which Sarah Palin is an expert, albeit with diminishing returns as her brief period of political relevance recedes. While there´s a certain trolling subtext to her new show, it´s mostly below the surface. I

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Stepping into an issue on the political fringes, Republican Senate candidate Matt Bevin spoke at a Kentucky rally meant to build support for legal cockfighting, a bloody practice illegal nationwide. The tea party-backed challenger to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell portrayed the event last Saturday as a states´ rights rally, but his appearance among cockfight backers prompted one animal-rights group to call on Bevin to withdraw from the May 20 GOP primary. The McConnell campaign scoffed at Bevin´s description of the event. "Only Matt Bevin would go to a cockfighting rally and claim he didn´t know what they were doing

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder told a House Appropriations subcommittee on Friday that his department doesn’t have a “formal relationship” with a controversial Islamic group while a chairman argued that an interpretation of the law has inexplicably tied the Pentagon’s hands in nabbing the Benghazi attackers. At a hearing to review the Justice Department’s FY 2015 budget request, Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Chairman Frank Wolf (R-Va.) reminded Holder, the sole witness, that last year the DOJ was “directed to follow the lead of the FBI to keep distance between government officials and individuals or organizations

CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died.

Although the president and his aides trumpeted the ObamaCare enrollment figures as a success, the administration did not always see those numbers as something to brag about. In his Rose Garden appearance this week, Obama seemed elated to proclaim "7.1 million Americans have now signed up for private insurance plans through these marketplaces." But it remains unclear how many of those sign ups have paid premiums in order to be officially enrolled, or how many were previously uninsured. In addition, even though officials are celebrating the 7 million mark,the White House once minimized numbers twice that large-- the 14 million people in the

The recall includes Tyson 5-pound bags of frozen, white meat chicken nuggets that were sold at Sam´s Club stores across the country.

SEATTLE -- The warnings could hardly have been clearer. One technical report told of the "potential for a large catastrophic failure" of the 600-foot hillside above a rural neighborhood near Oso, on the Stillaguamish River. Another noted plainly that it "poses a significant risk to human lives and private property." The danger was so apparent that Snohomish County officials mulled buying out the properties of the residents who lived there. Instead, the county continued to allow the construction of homes nearby. Seven went up even after a significant slide approached the neighborhood in 2006. Whatever the wisdom of its decision,

After Greg “Opie” Hughes, who has a wife and 2 kids, said that like his co-host Anthony Cumia, he too had lost his plan, it was game on. Opie complained to Anthony that his health plan had finally been “perfect.” Anthony then sarcastically accused Opie of “lying” for saying he liked his plan – a not so subtle swipe at Harry Reid, who claimed last month that all “tall tales” about ObamaCare were “lies.” Their tirade covered

The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million.
