According to Republican Atheists, "Republican" means anyone who is registered Republican.
The Republican Party became religious-focused during the Reagan era in the '80s, before that religion did not play a critical role. This shows that political parties are dynamic and can change according to input of its members.
Additionally the Democratic Party has had its fair share of religious influence. Democrat Senator Bilbo is one of the most notorious racist politicians in American history who was involved with the Ku Klux Klan and he justified his racism with religious reasoning.
Hard to believe this is a Democrat right?
"For Senator Bilbo, however, racism was more that just an ideology, it was a sincerely held religious belief. In a book entitled Take Your Choice: Separation or Mongrelization, Bilbo wrote that “[p]urity of race is a gift of God . . . . And God, in his infinite wisdom, has so ordained it that when man destroys his racial purity, it can never be redeemed.” Allowing “the blood of the races [to] mix,” according to Bilbo, was a direct attack on the “Divine plan of God.” There “is every reason to believe that miscengenation and amalgamation are sins of man in direct defiance to the will of God.”"
Senator Bilbo,has been dead since 1947 and he was Gov. of Mississippi what did you expect.
