Since the recent election, I have heard some Republicans saying that the party needs to "dump the Christians". They think that if the Republican Party is free to go pro-abortion and support gay marriage that they can win elections and implement a conservative agenda. Now forget that more than half of Republicans are Christians, there is another reason that the Republican Party cannot survive without the Christians. The Christian ethic is the foundation of conservatism. Without Christian morality the Republican Party would soon be indistinguishable from the Democrat Party.
