Christian Right talks of bolting GOP in 2004
“Leaders of the Christian right are thinking of bolting the Republican Party in 2004. Such a move would deal a severe blow to President BushÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s re-election effort.
Conservative religious activists cite the latest insult: the Republican PartyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s failure to rally behind Sen. Rick Santorum, whose comments about the upcoming Supreme Court case on consensual homosexual acts triggered a national firestorm.”
I think we should definitely work on encouraging them to leave. By pressing hard on the homosexual issue, that is. Force the Republicans to deal with it. There’s still enough moderate Republicans who have no problem with homosexuality that this should enrage the lunatic fringe religious zealots, causing them to leave.
