does not understand that religious right and collectivist left share the same morality - morality of sacrificing a man to an empty entity (god or society) that itself cannot collect sacrifices. Therefore, wise central planners and special interest groups will step in to collect.

The dilemma a TRUE religious person has is simple: if he sees something as evil, he should fight it or be regarded as a fake by other TRUE religious people of the same denomination. Therefore, religious right cannot support Individual liberty consistently.

For example, a true Christian should oppose gays on all issues. If one (like RP) says, it is not me to decide, he looks fake to other true Christians. On the other hand, if he does fight gays, he is not for Individual rights. The contradiction had been settled by Ayn Rand who advocated new morality based on reason not faith.
