Former McCain strategist Steve Schmidt (yesterday's Quoted of the Day) is warning the GOP that they "risk becoming a religious party" if they, uh, get too hung up on that whole religion thing.
"If you put public policy issues to a religious test, you risk becoming a religious party," he said. "And in a free country a political party cannot be viable in the long-term if it is seen as a sectarian party."

"If the party is seen as anti-gay, then that is injurious to its candidates" in Democrat-leaning and competitive states, he said.
If the GOP measures everything against a god-stick. If the GOP is not seen as a secular party. If the GOP is seen as homophobic.

If. Ha.

He's adorable.
