Election Reflections: More on Moral Values.

And their non-impact on the election:
The ritualistic condemnation of Christian fundamentalists neglects two things. The first: Secularists are just as likely to provoke moral outrage as are religious believers, yet we rarely read stories about the secular left. The second: Research shows that organizations of Christian fundamentalists are hardly made up of fire-breathers but rather are organizations whose members practice consensual politics and rely on appeals to widely shared constitutional principles.
As long as the left continues to use Christians as a convenient scapegoat, they won't understand the real reasons why they lost a close election.
