  •  The only "deep differences"with Obama (4+ / 0-)

    would have to do with gay rights, birth control and abortion, I'm guessing.  These issues involve religious coercion and are therefore restricting them cannot be enforced by government policy.

    That the the church must do its work in these areas without the government behind it is not because of the president's policies.   It's because of founding principles.

      position, you know that a lot of Christians don't share that position lockstep. I don't give a flying fuck about this guy talking, but I think some of those on the Christian right who are a very mixed group are probably starting to realize they don't have to vote as a bloc, especially when that bloc is driven so heavily by failing social policies that many don't agree with.

      Take Latinos. 50% are Catholic. 70% support birth control. 70% voted for Obama. See, that's promising!
