This is an interesting Op-Ed piece from a former Republican Senator, former Ambassador to the UN and he’s also a minister.
Good to see someone as (genuinely) religious as he must be complaining about how the party has swung too far towards religious control.
I like this quote: “As a senator, I worried every day about the size of the federal deficit. I did not spend a single minute worrying about the effect of gays on the institution of marriage. Today it seems to be the other way around.”
I really hope the Republican party, which is made up of two (usually opposed) factions – Libertarians and Social Conservatives – fractures soon. Unfortunately both sides are united in one aspect: power. Neither side is willing to give it up and they know that seperate neiter one would win. At least 50% of the US seem to respond to poll questions in a way suggesting they are more “liberal-minded” so the social conservatives would lose. Currently no one cares about fiscal conservatism, so they’d lose as well.
