    Story Highlights

    Republicans have long held a voting advantage among frequent church-goers
    After losing in '04, Democrats decided to try to close this gap
    Dems are speaking more openly about religion; reaching out to religious groups


    In 2004, Vanderslice was hired to coordinate John Kerry's religious outreach. She found herself working without a staff or much of a budget. She says the Kerry campaign failed to engage the faith community before it was too late to make a difference.

    In the past, "there was almost a joke that you couldn't be a Christian and be a Democrat," she said.

    Many voters wouldn't disagree with the joke, according to recent polling. In the 2006 midterm elections, 53 percent of weekly churchgoers voted Republican, as did 60 percent of people who attend church more than once a week, according to exit poll data. What's more, a Pew Forum poll taken just before the election showed only 26 percent of voters considered Democrats friendly to religion.

    These Democrats will do or say anything to get elected. I am tired of these people telling the voters what they think they want to hear.

    You can't be a Christian and be a Democrat. They are known for their hatred of God.

    I wish I could agree but they're going after the Catholic Mexicans who are already used to a controlling government system. So they are already in the mode of looking for what the government will do for them. As long as the Democrats can pull the wool over their eyes and reassure them by pretending to be "religious" (haha what a farce) all the goodies they offer the ignorant Mexicans will sound so much better than what they used to get from the uncaring mexican government.

    Pity how low the Dem party has sunk

    lol right. Notice how Hillary will not admit she is a liberal but she now calls herself a *progressive*? And of course she touts her religious devotion as well.

    A "religious progressive"? Isn't that a contradiction of terms?

    You're right, Democrats are the only politicians telling people what they want to hear in order to get elected.

    Don't be exclusionary. We don't just hate god. We also hate America (but love Native- and African-Americans), apple pie, flags (unless they are rainbow colored), Rupert Murdoch (really, all rich people but Warren Buffet and George Soros), capitalism, picnics, family pets, and the letter "N" (don't ask, it is a private democrat thing).

    Thank God.

    Liberal, progressive, socialist/communist, anti-god....pretty much all one and the same...
