by Alex Parker  |  RedState In case you haven’t heard, everything is offensive. Everything. And if you’re not outraged — right now — over everything — you’re a jerk. In fact, you’re such a jerk, you’re probably a Republican.

I have black and white Christian relatives who are extremely involved in their churches, faithfully attending every Sunday.  They sit in their favorite pew, singing, “I Have Decided To Follow Jesus.”  Why do most of these Christian relatives choose to ignore Democrats’, fake news media’s, public education’s, and Hollywood’s war on marriage, God’s sex distinctions, innocent life, and Jesus?
