GOP should distance itself from tea party

The right-wing extremists continually like to use their religious beliefs as a backdrop for their political positions. They will have us believe that God is on their side when they oppose civil rights, health care for all, Social Security, women's rights, and gun control. When they approve voter suppression, and give their blessings to their far right-wing representatives who vote against unions, worker rights, job place safety, minimum wage, gay rights, immigration, and the list goes on.

If these issues came before Christ himself would he support their agenda? I think not. I also believe that he would not approve of the tea party and its positions against its fellow man. He also might remind them of that old rule about majority rule. I will never understand why the vast majority of the Republican Party is afraid of them. Their time has passed and the majority should distance themselves from these radicals.
