so some Republicans have come out in support for gay marriage recently, but what about the very Christian conservative voters who make up a good portion of the party? they will not be happy (reportedly so) and claim it will polorize the country even more than it already is. they also claim to take up the fight even stronger and for some reason think they will still win the 2016 election (im guessing due to all the angry Christians showing up to vote). having read some of the key moments from today's SC hearing it looks like chances of repeal are really good...so whats the GOP going to do?
go back to the conservative Christian base and continue to lose elections as more ppl become okay with SSM or die off?
alienate a chunk of their base in hopes of winning elections, but then losing because their base didnt show up to the polls?
let this issue split the already unstable GOP into two groups: social conservatives (religious right) and fiscal conservatives (which most Republican leaders arent really)?

Maybe all the nut jobs in the GOP will self-destruct, leaving something more sane in the wake of the explosion. Answer by Ballad
It is my dream that the nut jobs in BOTH parties will self destruct and leave room for more sane representation, but we tend to do this damage to ourselves by voting the same idiocy back in election after election after election. Unfortunately, the people need to be smarter about their choices.
