    I look at groups like Focus on the Family (one of my favorite bumper stickers: Focus On Your Own Damned Family.) and I see not pure evangelists, but people seeking secular power.

    To the degree they want to remain politically relevant, I think their so-called core principles are somewhat malleable. They aren’t die-hard cultists. They have a sectarian religious agenda but they are also political operators and they want to stay in the game.
