"Can anybody explain to me what a person's race/ethnicity/religion/sexual preference has to do with their political ideology? I know, stupid question."

******That's not a stupid question at all, and a person's race/ethnicity/religion/sexual preference shouldn't have anything to do with their political ideology.

Except both you and I know that the Religious Right in this country is fiercely conservative, and many conservatives identify themselves with the Religious Right and (so-called) "Moral Majority". Many minorities, on the other hand, have historically aligned themselves with liberal and radical movements in this country because liberal (and radical) politics are often more likely to present an open forum for the issues which concern minorities.

The best way (I believe) to compare Conservative Politics, Liberal Politics, and Radical Politics, is the following:

Radicals want change quickly.

Liberals want change gradually.

Conservatives want change slowly (if at all).

How fast do you want to see some things in this country changed, Phyllis? :)
