Do you feel Christian conservatives are losing their clout within the Republican Party? October 9, 2007

In today’s MDJ, Matt Towery makes his case about a new survey showing religous conservatives are having a shrinking influence in GOP politics.  He doesn’t mention Georgia specifically in the actual  survey, but does conclude that “former Christian Coalition national director Ralph Reed was solidly defeated in a bid for his state’s nomination for lieutenant governor. In fact, Georgia’s true Christian Coalition actually disbanded and regrouped under a different name”.    What’s your take?  My wife and I were not able to attend Sadie’s Christian Alliance event on Saturday due to my son’s team being 5-0 in his youth football league and playing Saturday night.  We heard the event was great.  So, read Towery’s conclusions, then answer this question: Is the Georgia GOP more moderate today, then it was 10 years ago? And, what does it mean for Christian conservatives?
