Only On Brody File: GOP Faith Outreach Director on Republican Party: "This is the place where God’s got a home"


Here’s a question for you: Where have all the evangelical voters gone? Have they been raptured? No, actually millions are sitting on the couch simply not voting (Maybe they’re watching Fireproof!). This week on The Brody File Show we look at the critical problem of evangelical voting patterns. Born-Again Believers are just not showing up at the polls. What is the impact on our American culture? What is the impact on the GOP? We go one-on-one with Chad Connelly, the man the Republican Party is bringing in to help get out the faith-based vote. Watch below and see a very small partial transcript below. Watch the whole interview for much more along with a Brody File commentary.



Chad Connelly/RNC Director of Faith Engagement (4:40 into the clip): “The Republican Party is the natural home for people of faith. One of my most proud moments of chairman was getting to put in the most pro-faith, pro-family best platform ever put in Republican Party or political party history down in Tampa in 2012. We have nothing to be ashamed of. This is the place where God’s got a home. We watched the other party boo God out of their convention pretty much. You’re never going to make everybody agree. I got a wife and four kids. I can’t get them to agree on a whopper and a big mac.”

Chad Connelly/RNC Director of Faith Engagement (3:00 minutes into the clip): “I really think the left and particularly the media has been really good at saying, ‘you Christians, boy y’all do evangelizing and missions and my kids love that vacation bible school but you shouldn’t be involved in politics or education. That would be a violation of separation of church and state.’ and we give our meek turn the other cheek Jesus and we’re good at it.”

Maybe they haven't asked God to whom they should vote for. They are going by what they heard and saw. They were so afraid of voting for the Mormon that they didn't vote. I don't think that we would be in this mess if they would have voted for the Mormon. People voted to have a Muslim person in Congress. People should be listing to God as well as the men running. How about a Christian Spirit filled woman running for office.

The problem is largely that we no longer trust Republican leadership to be stewards of conservative and/or Christian values. Actually I'm Catholic and I'm in the Northeast, so maybe I'm nuts. But I think that we don't know where the Republican party is really going. I see a lot of back and forth. Many conservative news sources tell us the party is betraying us on immigration or a bunch of other topics. It's really hard to sort it out. I thought I Boehner or Cantor or Ryan were OK - but I keep hearing them described as sellouts. Anyway I think that this is more the explanation than that we are buying the separation of church and state nonsense from liberals.

The Republicans said this very same thing back in 1928 when the Democrats nominated Gov. Al Smith (a Catholic) for the office of President. Catholics, as you know, aren't true Christians....they don't read the Bible, they worship Mary, and they do everything that Anti-Christ in Rome tells them to.
