Letter to the editor: Religious conservatives are holding Republicans backI write in response to Tom Tracy’s Nov. 17 letter “America voted the wrong way, but God is still in control.”

I write in response to Tom Tracy’s Nov. 17 letter “America voted the wrong way, but God is still in control.”
If I haven’t learned anything else in the past 12 or so years, I know with absolute certainty that the Republican party has not one shred of credibility in its claim of moral superiority. There has been nothing but hate mongering, war mongering, greed, dishonesty, fiscal recklessness and hypocrisy from this outfit. To be fair, there are some “reality-based” Republicans that are trying to move their party away from this, but they are far outnumbered (and called “traitors”) by the hard right-wing base of their party.
Their hypocrisy is amazing, these people who constantly preach about getting the government off our backs and having more “personal freedoms” are the same ones who want the government to seize ownership of women’s bodies and their personal decisions, and want the government to step in and control who people can and cannot marry. Their claim of being the party of freedom and small government is just as hilarious as the lock they think they have on Christian values.
“GOP” does not stand for “God’s Only Party.” For every Bible verse they can find to support their agenda, I can find just as many if not more that contradict them and expose them as self-righteous hypocrites. I think most Americans know that, and that’s just one of many reasons they are losing elections.
