The Senators and Congressmen who lost their seats in this election are not just a random group. Five of the six losing Senators have 100% approval ratings from the Christian Coalition. And three of those also have 0% ratings from the League of Conservation Voters.

Of twenty-three Republican Congressmen who are being replaced by Democrats because they either lost or retired, seventeen (74%) have Christian Coalition ratings of 80% or more. All but two (69%) of those have League of Conservation Voters ratings of 20% or less.

The Center for Religion, Ethics, and Social Policy at Cornell University has a website called Theocracy Watch. Both Republicans and Christians should try harder to distance themselves from the Christian Coalition. Not because they oppose reproductive rights and clean air, but because they reject facts and believe they can create their own reality.
