As a rule, both Democrats and Republicans still have a high regard for the nation's biblical foundations. For some reason, this all changes when they are elected to Congress.

Congressional voting records show that Bible-related issues are decided by wide margins (sometimes better than 10-2) along party lines. Some examples of this are votes that would continue tax funding for pornographic art, votes to expel the Ten Commandments from public places and votes on the homosexual issue that would undermine both biblical precepts and existing state laws against sodomy.

The Democrats had the right policies to fix the problems of the Great Depression but America is facing a different type of crisis today, and the GOP is on the right side of these issues.

Voting patterns also show that the barbaric partial-birth abortion could be banned if three more Republican senators were elected.
