Bryan Fischer is concerned that there are just too many good candidates that appeal to the religious right and that this diminishes their influence over the Republican primaries. So he wants to have Christian right leaders call the potential candidates before them, interrogate them and then pick one of them to support:
“Probe them and challenge them and test them and ask them really hard questions about what they would do as president of the United States with this issue or that issue,” Fischer said. “And get some promises from these guys.”After said grilling, Religious Right leaders would then collectively decide “on one candidate that you as a group of leaders would recommend that the entire evangelical community gather behind.”
“It’s kind of like picking a Pope,” he said.
I think this is a brilliant idea. It would undoubtedly lead to schisms and infighting and that would be a lot of fun to watch.
