identify themselves as Christians but it takes third place in their life behind family and earnings. Media plays a big role in defining what is important in our elections. So wedge issues are pitted against christian values and that is defined as news. So it keeps the "little" people fighting against each other while much needed tax paid programs like social security and medicare are cut and subsidies/bailouts are given to to the wealthy. It's the old bait and switch routine and it works well in this country.
