Religious conservatives have had a good run. Since the 1970s, when Paul Weyrich and other conservative thinkers recognized that conservative evangelical Christians had untapped potential to change U.S. elections, the “religious right” has been a powerful, if always secondary, force in the Republican Party. Conservatives did such a thorough job of rallying evangelicals around causes such as abortion that the word “evangelical” in a political context is now almost synonymous with “conservative.”
My cartoon “A good problem to have in the Human Rights Campaign office” is now up on the Winston-Salem Journal’s website. You can view the cartoon alongside a Bloomberg View opinion column at the following link:
This is my third cartoon to be republished by the Journal and my first to go on their website and alongside a column. It will also, to my knowledge, still be in Saturday’s (tomorrow 3/8/14) print edition of the Journal.
The cartoon was originally published by The Appalachian on March 4th, 2014 and can be viewed on their website here: http://bit.ly/P0GORZ
