    I've un-friended half my "friends" and family on Facebook because they no longer seem to see a difference between the GOP and Christianity. In their reality if I object to a religious policy or action then I am attacked for being anti-American, unpatriotic and hating democracy. If I object to a GOP position, policy or action I am attacked as being anti-Christian, a religious persecutor, an atheist as well as for being anti-American, unpatriotic and hating democracy.

    At this point I don't know that rational members of the GOP are able to wrestle control away from the Christian GOP. I have read that evangelicals have identified evangelical extremists as a problem. There appears to be a move afoot by evangelicals to make a clear separation between themselves and extremist evangelicals. Seem the idea is that extremist evangelicals have ruined the image of standard evangelicals and the plan is to let the extremists keep the name "evangelical" while real evangelicals rebrand.

    Between mainstream GOP and wild assed crazies of different stripes who have taken over the party and between evangelicals and mouth foaming evangelical extremists it's all screwed up. They are all mixed in together and not much of any of the rest of us knows who's who. But if you disagree with a policy or position you will invariably be attacked as a godless communist who hates America and Jesus.

    Many mainstream members of the GOP and many mainstream Christians who don't always agree with the party or the faith do not have a voice.

    Personally, I don't care what Mike Pence believes as long as he leaves it at the house. Honestly, I seriously doubt Pence is capable of doing that. I doubt seriously religionists would allow him to.
    He has no intention of leaving it at the house:

    But it was not his first brush with criticism from the LGBT community. A self-described “Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order,” the former member of Congress was a prominent conservative figure in battles over marriage equality and equal rights in the last decade.

    I would be more than a little concerned were he to be the next president. Who knows where his Christian beliefs could lead the country? Like this one:
    He opposed a law that would prohibit discrimination against LGBT people in the workplace

    The Employment Non-Discrimination Act would have banned discrimination against people based on sexual orientation. Pence voted against that law in 2007 and later said the law “wages war on freedom and religion in the workplace.”

    You mean the Southern strategy myth. I've done all that - where is your research?

    I own a copy and have read it. Going to learn Arabic so that I can read it in the original language. Have you done any of that or do you just believe whatever CNN and the NYT tells you about the "religion of peace"?

    Arabic is a very difficult language to learn. For example, a given symbol can have a different meaning & a different sound depending on its position in a word. But good luck with that. And how are you at vocalizing glottal stops? See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamza

    I went through a phase in late high school and early college where I read a few religious texts. Can't say I believe you.
