    “…and American politics is the battlefield.” Another demographic trend post Eisenhower GOP is offered here: http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/09/race-and-the-modern-gop-111218.html?ml=m_al_1#,VCX8gleKO7o

    It’s important to note that the two positions are not equivalent: religious believers are not asking secular institutions and figures to be politically silent. But the secularists are requiring religious institutions to be silent.

    Secularism does not ask for equality, it asks for a monopoly on the public realm.

    It’s a curious thing that many of us formerly “affiliated” (but now “unaffiliated) know that politics will kill the spiritual nature of a church, but the modern Republican church-goers seem to have no clue about that.
