Someone noticed that Christianity and right-wing doctrine aren't nearly as compatible as the right-wing wants them to think ...

There's an episode of Behind the Bastards called "How the Rich Ate Christianity" about how certain people essentially constructed the religious right. In the early 20th century, the majority of pastors were socialists.

Religion is always conservative, that's why Russian Communists destroyed churches and killed clerics.

Religion is always socially conservative. Fiscal conservatism doesn't tend to jive with the teachings of most religions.

The fact that they tend to vote conservative anyway may show where their priorities lie, but I wasn't lying when I said that most pastors were socialists in the early 20th century - it should be a natural consequence of believing in the teachings of Jesus.

The teaching of Jesus is to obey your master.

A teaching of Jesus is to obey your master. Hence that whole social conservatism thing.
