Republican Timidity or Perfidy

Last November,  I heard and overheard many Christians proclaim thanks for the  pro-life gains in the newly elected congress.  Well, last week those “gains” along with GOP hold-overs failed to pass a strong bill banning abortion after the 20th week post conception. It could have passed without a single Democrat vote!  Of course, a law banning abortion would be as unconstitutional as the Roe decision permitting it, but who can expect lawmakers to understand the principle of federalism or the 10th amendment?  It was simply another betrayal, but whose counting?  So the question is, when will Christians lose their faith in the GOP?  Is it above their faith in God?
