God’s name is Maxwell? Or Thor…see, these competing mythologies are so confusing.

People who ‘think’ as you do are the primary reason the epitaph of the Republican party was written on November 6, 2012. Unless and until they are willing to part ways with religion, they will never regain power. That whole Jesus / Lucifer paradigm isn’t working anymore, nobody’s buying it.
The GOP/conservatives must put a huge amount of distance between themselves and the rapture monkeys, and quickly, because attempting to accomodate this decreasing but noisy fringe is destroying the country, if, in fact, it hasn’t already.
Put a different way, it’s ten thousand times more likely that the Mayans were right about December 21, 2012 than that the skies will roll back and the second incarnation of an invisible Jewish carpenter will come to judge the ‘quick and the dead.’
I was brought up on this crap and I gave it up ten years ago because it’s just complete hogwash, a threadbare blanket to wrap your brain in to insulate it from reality.
Bottom line, to modify a bumper sticker I saw this morning: Republicans: No God, Know Votes! Know God, No Votes…

In a word, yes. The GOP should drop all social conservative issues like they’re red-hot iron. That is, if they don’t want to end up as an historical footnote. Even Mike Huckabee said the Republicans could go the way of the Whigs if they don’t find a way to broaden their appeal.
It won’t be a popular opinion here, but facts are facts. If Republicans don’t drop God, abortion, gay marriage, homophobia, school prayer, they will not win another election.
Heading off the inevitable accusations, I am not a liberal. I’m a registered Republican who voted for Romney and turned off the TV in disgust long before the election was even called.
I also listen to Glenn every day I can, and, I love ya, buddy, but I turn you off when you start in with the Jesus stuff. That age of America is over, and it ain’t coming back. Again, like it or not.
As long as the Republicans keep trying to appease the fundies over issues that, at best, are states rights questions, you’ll get the idiots like Akin, et. al, and if there’s one of those types in the party at all, they get hung around all our necks and we get four more years of Obama’s ruinous policies.
Until the party comes to grips with those facts, whose stinging slaps are still imprinted on all our faces, they are done and by association conservatism is done, as a national political ideology.
The comments that “we lost because Romney isn’t conservative ENOUGH” are delusional, albeit a fairly persistent
