Newt Gingrich, South Carolina and the Religious Right

RE: Newt Gingrich, South Carolina and the Religious Right
Everything in moderation. If the religious right were that powerful, then Santorum and Bachmann would be tier 1 candidates. They despise Paul who is consistently 2nd or 3rd because he won't carry their cross of narcotic prohibition or involve us in all these crusades for oil and prestige. I couldn't give a crap less about Romney's religion. Frankly, I think him being a Mormon makes him kind of weird and makes the otherwise boring and stale husk of Romney just a tad more interesting. At that level, religion is more of a badge or certificate you got at some point. You made a decision when no one knew who you were and you were celebrated for it, but as you climb the ladder of politics, religion becomes a whip to keep a certain demographic in line. Otherwise, how could Catholics like Pelosi and Kerry approve of abortion rights? It's a joke. A real "TRUE" Christian would have nothing to do with the office of the Presidency and would instead seek to do the Lord's will through local actions.
