Barry Goldwater On Christians And Compromise

Wise words about the future (now the present) from “Mr. Conservative”.

“Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party and they’re sure trying to do so, it’s going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can’t and won’t compromise. I know, I’ve tried to deal with them.”

~ Barry Goldwater, November 1994, as quoted in John Dean, Conservatives Without Conscience (2006)

I wish Obama had caught wise to this fact back when Goldwater had.  It would’ve saved him a lot of grief.
