Over the last few weeks I have come to the conclusion/realization that Evangelicals in America have moved from influencing politicians to getting pimped by them. What do I mean by that? Well, the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections showed the country that evangelicalism was a forced to be reckoned with and that if you wanted to get elected president you needed our vote - just ask John Kerry about getting punked by evangelical voters in Ohio who pretty much single-handedly won that crucial state for Bush. However, after 2004 both the democrats (who were virtually clueless about the evangelical impact until then) and the republicans (who realized the importance of getting support from evangelicals) have moved from seeking to embrace, push, and express the social views of evangelicals to turning their position on any given issue to one that they say evangelicals should support and care about from a moral perspective.
