HomoQuotable - Andrew Sullivan

"Has he been conscious since Roe vs Wade? The point here, it seems to me, is that Focus on the Family is no longer necessary. Its positions - once radical - are now litmus tests for every GOP candidate save one. It controls the party on social issues so completely the likeliest nominee began his campaign at a prayer rally. The winner of the Iowa straw poll is not just anti-gay, but actually has a business 'curing' them. Criminalizing all abortion is now not even up for debate within the GOP, and blind, faith-based support for Greater Israel in a global war against Islam is also de rigueur. Mead can dream on, but you don't need a religious right when the GOP has itself become synonymous with it." - Andrew Sullivan, countering Walter Mead's claim that Christianists have diminishing political clout.
