I'm sorry Dr. Brown, but this is just so wrong. You don't seem to have any understanding of what Christians over the years have been able to accomplish by becoming an "appendage" of the Republican party. Without all those Christians serving at all levels in that party, it would not at all be like it is today, largely favorable to Christian values. Would you have preferred if the PC crowd, or the globalists, or the corporatists, or the establishment, or some other non-Christian group had taken over the Republican party? If they had, it would have been more and more just like the Democratic party except in a few areas like tax policy. Where would we be today if both parties supported abortion, or the whole LGBTQ agenda? Christians didn't lose their ability to bring about change, they joined up and brought change inside where it was needed. You also don't seem to understand just how much the two parties have split apart, largely on the issues that matter to Christians. Is it not abundantly clear that one party is being directed by Satan for his purposes and the other at least has a strong Christian influence to it? Do you really think the Democratic party is ever going to come to evangelical Christians and seek our support? Maybe in a few small places, but overall it is clearly moving away from Christians and our values. Of course we need to follow God rather than a political party, but denying the obvious, that one party is largely on our side while the other is moving in the direction of criminalizing Christian beliefs, only helps the enemy, and I sure wish you'd wake up. The party that is largely on our side needs our support, our input, and our votes. The party that is against almost everything we believe in does not. I for one will not support or vote for a party that is clearly trending in the direction where they'll put me and you in jail -- exactly because our allegiance is to God.
