One of the most reliable constituencies of the Republican Party in recent years has been born-again Christians. A recent national survey of likely voters conducted by The Barna Group, however, showed that the republicans have lost the allegiance of many born-again voters. The November election is truly up for grabs — and if the election were held today, most born-again voters would select the Democratic Party nominee for president, whoever that might be.
Even the more conservative evangelicals, which Barna defines as a subset of the born-again group, have registered their dissatisfaction with their republican choices, with 40 percent saying they are undecided about who they will support.
|Adam Hamilton, author of the forthcoming book (April 1, Abingdon Press), “Seeing Gray in a World of Black and White: Thoughts on Religion, Morality, and Politics,” is senior pastor of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kan. He believes that conservative Christianity has reached its zenith in this country and is headed for a period of decline unless it is willing to change.
