    turn on Catholics.  I predict it's coming.  They have this fiction of theirs that Christianity is consistent and compatible with capitalism, and it's not.  So they'll find some dumb interpretive thing that let's them make the new pope wrong on religious doctrine, not just politics.

      Evangelicals pretend to like Catholics in the U.S. only because they can count votes, and have no hope of a political majority without Catholics.  The basic anti-Catholic beliefs are there.

      Those beliefs could come out into the open if Evangelicals decide that that particular coalition isn't going to win them many elections.  

    •  They can't turn on Catholics in general (0+ / 0-)

      But they can split them.  The Catholics have always had their conservative side, and the GOP will simply stay close to them.
