Tea Party movement accused of not being religious enough LOL...

"There's a libertarian streak in the tea party movement that concerns me as a cultural conservative," said Bryan Fischer, director of Issue Analysis for Government and Public Policy at the American Family Association. "The tea party movement needs to insist that candidates believe in the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage."
"As far as I can tell [the tea party movement] has a politics that's irreligious. I can't see how some of my fellow conservatives identify with it," said Richard Cizik, who broke with a major evangelical group over his support for government action on climate change, but who remains largely in line with the Christian right on social issues. "The younger Evangelicals who I interact with are largely turned off by the tea party movement -- by the incivility, the name-calling, the pathos of politics."

This quote makes little sense. The TEA in Teaparty is an acronym for Taxed Enough Already. By definition, adopting positions on social/moral issues is not their major concern.
