It appears that the political arm of the Christian Right is attempting to save the Republican Party from its own inevitable self-destruction. It cannot be done! The Republican Party has no intention of honoring God or His Word, and God has every intention of bringing this Party to an ignominious end.
The election of Hillary Rodham Clinton as president of the United States of America in 2008, will be the seal and the end of a failed Party that sold its birthright for a mess of pottage. It had ample opportunity to stand for God and His Word. It controlled the presidency, the Senate, and the House, yet it chose to compromise those issues (abortion, homosexuality, Islam) for which the world and the devil are steadfastly contending. It chose peace with the devil, rather than war with him.
Winston Churchill said it best when he confronted then Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain with his cowardice and betrayal in dealing with Adolph Hitler. Chamberlain returned to England proclaiming, "Peace in our time!" Churchill responded, "You sir, had a choice between shame and war. You chose shame and you will have war."
The Republican Party has chosen the way of shame when it should have been at war. It has correctly assumed that the Christian Right had no where else to go but Republican and therefore could be bought for a very low price. Unfortunately, this assumption has proved true time and again, as the Republican Party continues to lower the bar for those seeking the Party's nomination. Now the frontrunners for the Republican Party's presidential nomination are pro-abortion.
Pastor Jerry Falwell, a strong political arm of the Christian Right, is having Newt Gingrich speak to the graduating seniors at Liberty University in 2007. I wonder why? He had John McCain speak to last year's graduating class. He already had pro-abort Rudolph Giuliani speak at the school of higher learning. These three will never stand for life - they are politicians. Pastor Falwell is selling his birthright for a mess of pottage. But he is preparing the way for the Christian Right to vote for a pro-abortion Republican.

Read the whole article. I can only argue the following: God has chosen people of less than salubrious character to do His Will before, Moses the Murderer and Saul the Persecutor comes to mind most quickly.
I have been waiting for Newt to run because I am very familiar with his views, and although I do not agree with him on every point, I have the most confidence in him to do that which is right, and his vision of The Long War is correct.
Duncan Hunter is the man that meets the requirements of the article as a good man, and I think that Barack Obama and Al Gore are worse choices than the HildaBeast because at least she would continue the War Against the IslamoFascists.
