Tea Party "Christian Conservatives" lose the plot in Texas

See Fox News here :
The race to lead the Texas House of Representatives has taken a religious turn, with some conservatives in the state suggesting that the speaker of the House, who is a Jewish should be replaced by a "Christian conservative."
 Some Tea Partiers try to explain :
Felicia Cravens, founder of the Houston Tea Party Society, said "intellectual laziness" may be to blame for the controversy. 
"I think people have been intellectually lazy in using 'Christian' and 'conservative' interchangeably ... and there's a lot of that in Texas," she said.
A depressing story, but in some ways I suppose its quite reassuring that Fox put this on the front page in a basically critical take.
