Christian Obama voters...oxymoron?

Great post from Steven Crowder over at Big Hollywood:
I will say however, that I’ve disturbingly witnessed what I like to call “Trendy Christians” pulling the lever for Obama in this last election. These are the type of Christians whom even atheists don’t respect. The type of Christians who allow their core values to be trumped by fads or the most recent P. Diddy campaign. The type of Christians whose misunderstanding of the New Testament is overshadowed only by his ability to discuss the “extreme Christian symbolism” amongst his sleeve of tattoos. I sincerely hope that in retrospect, they can now look at Obama’s first actions as president and pull a proverbial head slap reminiscent of a young Alvy Singer. We get it, young Christians. You were fooled by the packaged, messianic glow of the Obama campaign and we forgive you. Just don’t let it happen again, little buddies.
Some 150 comments and counting. Must have hit a nerve.

According to various pundits, something like 80 percent of the populace identifies themselves as some flavor of Christian.

Personally, I think this is bunk. I think we're at a tipping point where 20 years of anti-Christian propaganda, both subtle and blatant have taken it's toll. Likely most folks won't even realize they aren't "Christians" any more as they spend more time worshiping the earth goddess, getting their teenaged daughter a quiet abortion, voting other people's money to take care of the poor but keeping as far away from actual poor people as possible and of course, having that little fling with the neighbor's wife/husband.

Even the ones that go to church only spend an hour or so a week there, and 10 to 20 hours in the church of the media.
