Greg Russak‘s insight:

"By 2024, evangelicals will have been up to their armpits in politics for half a century. With what to show for it? A country where (I’m betting) abortion is still legal, and now Adam and Steve are saying vows. And their vehicle for their agenda, the Republican Party, will be walking away from them to a place where they smell more votes (and money)."

I think we sometimes confer too much credit to politicians generally as champions for a set of beliefs and ideals with which we are aligned. Votes, and the money to get them, is really what most of them are about.
