Conservative Matt Lewis Agrees With Me: Evangelical/GOP Alliance Doomed — Watch!

“Today’s conservatives are making it harder for a new generation of Christians to square conservative political activism with their faith,” writes Matt Lewis, a leading conservative columnist. He was summing up whet he’d written in The Week, the day before. Here he is with the Morning Joe crew talking about the Bible, Jesus, Republicans and politics and why Republicans are loosing the future because they are loosing the evangelical young people. Nice to have what I’ve been saying  about the losing GOP/Evangelical stratagy (in a post with over 2500 shares and likes) confirmed.

    Conservatives are not saying the evangelical involvement in the GOP , ” is doomed”. Matt Lewis and some are saying younger Christians would move their energy and time to local politics. It all starts with the grassroots . Just as the late 70s and early 80s gave rise to a ground-swell of Bible believing Christians who became active in their communities and politics in response to the malaise and spiritual apathy that we saw in our country and world , so too there is beginning another revival of sorts but it will be played-out in towns and local politics . The national scene is often indeed too intense and mean spirited. Our local communities are the places where we have to live and get-along with one another. People in local communities grew up together and know one another better . It all starts here and in our homes and with out neighbors next door. The so called “religious right ” was not started by Dr. Francis Schaeffer and his son. It started as a body movement , a consensus of hearts and minds across the country . Those that voiced well those ideas and concerns that were upon our heart , were given our attentions and ears. Those that had some answers and solutions , gained our support . People like Jerry Falwell , Dr. James Dobson , Ronald Reagan etc. , spoke for us but they did not start the movement .

    I read your book “A Time for Anger” years ago. The title was apt – there was a lot of anger expressed in it from your then right wing point of view. Now I’m reading your blog which is even angrier toward the religious right than your book was toward the godless left.

    What’s with all the anger? You’re in your 60′s now and well on your way to becoming a bitter old man.
