The author of this Newsweek piece is using a secular liberal worldview to judge the GOP and does not appear to recognize the effect of Christian morality on the expectations of Republican voters. I would recommend that readers should dismiss this article.
Welcome to FR, Newbie. And what would those expectations be? In responding, you may want to address why we should ignore the article since it was written by an advisor to our Republican President. You may also want to compare the view of income redistribution espoused by many of our Christian churches and Marxist Socialist (Compassionate Conservative) principles.
