    who would very much be considered the Christian Right. They are deep South, right wing and very conservative. But they are in no way what you would make them out to be with the broad strokes you are employing.

      Christianists. I use that term to specifically refer to those on the Right who basically reject what the actual Bible says in favor of a very perverted "gospel" that promotes greed and power over love, justice and mercy. Somehow, I think Christ would be less interested in how we take care of the poor - either directly or through our taxes -- than He is about keeping the capital gains rate low.
