    Soldiers in the U.S. military have been told in a training briefing that evangelical Christians are the No. 1 extremist threat to America – ahead of groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, KKK, Nation of Islam, al-Qaida, Hamas and others. “Men and women of faith who have served the Army faithfully for centuries shouldn’t be likened to those who have regularly threatened the peace and security of the United States,” said Col. (Ret.) Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty. “It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of wrongheaded characterization. It also...

    Mormonism, I believe unfortunately, cost Romney this election. Why do I say this? All the data and hard vote totals point to Evangelicals staying home. The exit polls show it in both Ohio and Virginia. My republican precinct in VA, with a CHiristian Conservative base, went from 1800 votes in 2004 and 2008 to 1500 votes yesterday. Obama has one of the worst records in presidential history, Romney ran a solid campaign leaps and bounds ahead of McCain, who ran against hope and change, fainting, and messianic prophecies, and all he had to show for it was Indiana and North...

    'TIS the season: What better time than Christmas for an all-out war between Christian conservatives and the rest of the Republican Party? The Evangelical insurgency of the Mike Huckabee campaign having spooked the GOP establishment into counterattacking with a vengeance, the former Arkansas governor has a plan to keep the Huckmentum rolling: Play the victim card. Hard. "There is a level of elitism that has existed," Huckabee told the Christian Broadcasting Network's David Brody in an interview that ran yesterday. "People like me," he said - that is, "Evangelicals" and people "from the middle of America" - are expected to...

    It is now becomming apparent that the rumors were somewhat premature that the evangelical leaders who belong to the loose coalition known as the Arlington Group had soured on the candidacy of Fred Thompson. The American Spectator's Washinton Prowler reports: Earlier this week, former Sen. Fred Thompson met privately in Washington, D.C. with senior members of the Arlington Group, a coalition of social and religious conservatives. The meeting, according to Arlington Group members present, included members who had previously met with Thompson at a private meeting in the spring, prior to Thompson's speech before the Council on National Policy. At...

    Perhaps the new slogan for the Republican Party should be: “It’s Morality, Stupid!” In the 2004 election, the Republicans won the presidency and gained a majority in Congress, in large part due to the high voter-turnout of Evengelical Christians. According to the exit polling conducted in southern states, these Christians went out to the polls because they did not want an extreme liberal becoming president -- evidenced in the fact that 22% of those polled believed that morality was the most important issue of the 2004 campaigns. Opposition to gay marriage also proved to be important in courting the religious...
