Newsmax: Obama Fails to Gain Among Churchgoers

Who finds this surprising?

Certainly not I.

The unprecedented effort that Democrat Barack Obama put into courting the white churchgoing public has apparently failed, according to a new Gallup Poll.

The poll shows that Obama is backed by just 28 percent of white voters who attend church at least once a week — a group that makes up roughly a third of all voters. That’s actually one point less than John Kerry and Al Gore received during the previous two elections.

“There has been remarkably little change among whites in the religion gap,” John Green, of the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, told Politico.

Gosh, I wonder if it could be because white churchgoers find it shocking to hear “G-d Damn America” preached from the pulpit?

Could it be that they find it hard to reconcile infanticide with Christianity?

Or maybe they’re just racists. Yeah. That must be it. Bitter redneck racists, clinging to their religion.
