As far as Republicans go, who knows what they worship? If the policies they support are a reflection of their faith, it sure as hell isn’t Christianity and it damn sure isn’t the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Republicans want America to be a Christian Nation that ignores Christ's teachings, which, by definition, would make it an Antichrist Nation.
Being a Christian has always been more than just believing the right things. It was about following a revolutionary Jesus who keeps overturning our social and economic assumptions and system: in order to make more room for the very ones we (religious and non-religious) try to distance ourselves from. If we continue to distance ourselves from the ones Jesus says are blessed (the poor) then we will be distanced from God's Kingdom because the kingdom is theirs.

There are two Great Commandments from which all others emanate; Love God and Love your neighbor.
Everything that is not motivated by love is sin. If you give a billion dollars to charity to get a tax deduction and recognition, you have sinned. If you give a quarter to a homeless man out of love, you have honored God, Who is love.
