So Called Christian Conservatives

I'm tired.  I'm sick and I'm tired.  I'm sick that our country has devolved politically so far that people have segregated their political views so far from their purported religious views.  The so-called Christian Conservatives, that make up such a large part of the Republican base are turning my stomach.  They go to churches all over the US on Sundays, praising the Prince of Peace.  They praise the man that urged us to turn the other cheek and to do unto others as we would have them do unto ourselves.  Then for the remainder of their lives, they cheer on aggressive foreign policy, pre-emptive wars, rampant militarism.  They worship the God who gave us Free Will and then seek to use the coercive power of the State to take that free will away from us. 

I'm a Christian and I am a conservative, but never lump me in with those who support war over diplomacy or the Government over liberty.
