    I Can Speak With a Former Insider's Knowledge because I was in the business of evangelical Christianity for a while, consulting with pastors and other leaders.

    You'd be right in thinking that Republican leaders and pundits live in a bubble, but it's nothing compared to the bubble of evangelical leaders. They are easily the most uninformed and misinformed people I've ever met. Easily.

    And the most easily led. Push the right buttons and they activate.

    Further, most are truly motivated by vanity and ego, though it takes slightly different forms from one denomination to another, and sometimes from one leader to another. It's always disguised but make no mistake: it is vanity and ego.

    Now, of course, many have jumped from the "slow train coming" to the political choo-choo. Preaching the Roman Road week after week just got too boring.

    Why don't they rail against rape? Because they're male dominated and primitive. Always keep that in mind and they'll be easy to understand, and their actions will be predictable.
