Remember four years ago when Republicans were skeptical about Trump, concerned that he would be too far to the left of the party?

Well, to reword an old saw, “The more things change the more they become different.”  Not only has Trump positioned himself safely inside the Republican foul lines, but that position, coupled with his less than diplomatic style, has pushed the Democrats to the left.

Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Bernie Sanders are a long way from Dems like Al Gore, Bill Clinton—both Baptists, and Joe Lieberman, a practicing Jew, and should any of these candidates be elected the nation is likely to change quickly.  I suspect it will continue to veer in the direction of Western Europe and its secular culture, only at an ever faster pace.

Let’s be careful here.  The concern is not about basic Republican or Democratic ideology—small vs. large government for example, or even capitalism vs. socialism.  It is about a Judeo-Christian foundation vs. a secular progressive agenda, with the latter dominating the far left of the Democratic Party.  I don’t think I need to tell you that not every Republican is God-fearing or that no Democrat is, but we are not talking about individuals here.  We are talking about a spiritual clash here, one that will do much to determine the basis of our national moral values and our hospitality toward matters of faith.
