Ultimately, here is what I get from the fashionable blaming of Christians for the failures of the left.

Adolph Hitler rose from obscurity by blaming the jews for the treaty of Versailles. This treaty was a horrible burden on Germany, but it did result from the practices (and excesses) of the leaders of the Austro-Hungarian empire. Hitler obviously wouldn't gain any traction by blaming mom and dad, so he astutely exploited historical dislike of Jews to gain power for the National Socialist party and himself.

The left is clearly willing to blame the minority evangelicals for its current woes; the difference, of course, is that Christians, like it or not, do form the majority social class in this country, so much so that any candidate for higher office must publicly embrace Christianity. The liberals would like to blame their failure to explain and sell its platforms to the majority of Americans on the Christians, specifically the evangelicals. This will not work; the majority of Christians are moderates who bear little resemblence to the church of the inquisition. Any attempt by the far left to persecute the Christians, even the evangelicals, on the basis of religion will alienate the moderate Christians in both parties (not to mention, of course, those among the independent).

(I didn't see the Hillary Clinton speech the other day, although Rabid did. Apparently Hillary is telling people that they need to use the bible to help the poor and disadvantaged.)

Here's where we differ:

If Kerry had won, (and he did only lose by a small percentage of the votes) there would have undoubtedly been a buzz about the liberal "voting blocks". Most prominently, these are the African Americans, the unions, and the 'university intellectuals'. And, undoubtedly, there would be liberal pundits that would have countered with how silly and unthinking the right was being with their buzz. I would SO not be one of those pundits.

Dude, the elections were less than 2 weeks ago. The conservatives won a lion's share of the government. And you're on line comparing liberal grousing to the start of the Holocaust. If I posted some kind of shit on my LJ about gay marriage rights being similar to the start of the American Holocaust, you'd be on my ass like white on rice.

Reality check - your side won. At least take a month off from being so pissed over the election. I reiterate: you won. Stop complaining. Go have a beer. Play with the kids.

Oh, so he does have a mandate. Cool, I'll tell him you said so.
