For too long, the Republican Party has been at war with itself. Rational Republican beliefs have given way to character assassination. Pragmatism and principle have been overtaken by pettiness and bigotry. Make no mistake. I have not left the Republican Party. It left me. I cannot tolerate a political party that demeans Texans based on their sexual orientation, the color of their skin or their economic status. I will not be a member of a party in which hate speech elevates candidates for higher office rather than disqualifying them. I cannot place my name on the ballot for a political party that is proud to destroy the lives of hundreds of thousands of federal workers over the vain attempt to repeal a law that would provide health care to millions of people throughout our country.The GOP also has to contend with the fanatical Religious Right who seem determined to stay rooted in staunch ideological principles. Unfortunately, for them, time is not on the side of the Religious Right, nor is it on the side of the Republican Party. Times are changing and people are changing. Even the Pope called them out on their deep-rooted inflexibility recently. According to Vatican Radio, last Thursday, the Pope said:
And when a Christian becomes a disciple of the ideology, he has lost the faith. The faith becomes ideology and ideology frightens. Ideology chases away the people, distances, distances the people and distances of the Church of the people, but it is a serious illness, this of ideological Christians. It is an illness, but it is not new, eh?Watch his wisdom here:
