Because following Christ's example would require them to be humble about their faith in God, give selflessly, reserve judgement and treat their neighbors as they would their own family, and treat the poor better than the rich.

I'd be happy if they just stopped being arseholes for a while.

Too bad THAT ain't gonna happen any time soon.

Most Republicans don't follow Crist because it wouldn't benefit them. Crist is in a unique position.
When he was governor he did well enough to be appreciated by his constituents, regardless of party. Since his exit from the Governor's office, the vacancy was filled with Rick Scott, who is unpopular with all but his cronies and the ultra-right, so much so that Floridians are ready to replace him with any qualified candidate who isn't outright evil. Crist is popular enough that it won't matter if there's an (R) or (D) behind his name when the other choice is Scott.
I'm not sure of how many other places something like this could work. Wisconsin, maybe? Kansas?

NC is getting to be like that.

Because they'd lose the idiot vote?

That used to happen all the time in Louisiana. Some state politicians would change their party affiliation every other election cycle.

I really hope so. Watching what's been happening to my home state makes me really sad. =(

You know who has a pocket full of H's, and he ain't afraid to use them?

Jimmy Fallon, that's who.

I remember. I lived in NOLA for most of the 90's.

Have you seen the latest McCrory bribe to teachers? They're trying to push through a 4,200 dollar pay increase to new teachers only. "Hey sorry veterans for cutting your earned benefits and not giving you any raises. To rectify this, we'll give new teachers only a pay raise."

Removing Rick Scott from office and getting medical marijuana voted in....Nov 4th could be a great day for Florida.

Remember remember to vote on the 4th of November.

FTFA: The real question as I see it does not revolve around why Crist fled into the more inclusive arms of the Democratic Party. Rather I wonder why more Republicans of any social conscience, not to mention survival instincts, haven't done the same.

I think I found the problem.

Jesus H. Crist?

*Facepalms*

At least I'm proud of the church I grew up in. Not only was the United Church of Chapel Hill showing up in force on.. I think it was this past weekend?- at the protests, I know that several members of the congregation (including one of the pastors!)have been arrested over the past several months at those protests. (Arrested for Reasons, as far as I can tell.)

Also, I would say the people behind NC Civitas are pond scum, but pond scum can have redeeming qualities, and I would not wish to insult it with such a comparison.

It would be a slightly late birthday present to me.

I don't smoke pot or anything, but legalizing it is pretty cool with me, so legalizing medicinal is a step in the right direction.

For a fleeting moment, I thought the headline was referring to Peter Crist and his incisive analysis of the War on DrugsTM.

If only.

I thought the fat one was Judas.

Oh, wait, I'm getting the Muslim version mixed up with the Christian version.

So which one did they crucify?
