We are seeing it now in the republican party , they become more shrill, lashing out and the heard following along in a stampede mode


Like a cornered animal, which turns instinctively to confront pursuing predators, the Christian Right, knowing it represents the views of an ever shrinking number of Americans, is engaged in an existential fight to the death.



The Christian Right’s dirty little secret is they are acutely aware that changing demographics are running against them.

86 percent of Americans in 1990 identified as Christians, by 2007, that was down to 78 percent. Today only 7 in 10 say they are Christians. But the percentage of those describing themselves as atheists, agnostics or nonbelievers has risen to 23. That exceeds the Catholic population and is only slightly below evangelicals.

85 percent of Americans born before 1945 still call themselves Christians, Only 57 percent of those born after 1980 call themselves Christians

It's really all over but the crying going foward with national elections

And actually they aren't dying out, they are just moving from dominance in the culture to soon equal footing with other groups, then to minority status.

And change like that for a hard right wing conservative feels like the world ending. It isn't, their religion will continue on, its just their dominance of the culture will end and their feeling of 'entitled favored group' will end.

You worry more about religion than a priest or rabbi does.

and it makes you one of the most boring people on the board

You're all worried about people who go Church and love their country? While the Dem party is off disenfranchising voters with coin flips in Iowa and has an old idealogically socialist with no concept of how things actually work and a soon to indicted smelly ole Clinton to choose from??

Well then -- the only logical conclusion is that Dems have no self-preservation skills and are TOO STUPID to panic..

PANIC IS GOOD !!!!! You should panic over Trump.. You should panic over a Clinton with absolutely no respect for the nation's secrets. You should panic that BOTH parties are broken.

You should panic that most every candidate wants to fight a war in Syria and leave it yet ANOTHER Smoldering heap of anarchy in it's place..

PLENTY of panic to go around..
