Nothing Puzzling About It
The answer is simple. These Republicans are supporters of the late Rev. Jerry Falwell. He asserted that the troubles that we experience are God's punishment for our transgressions. To placate God and call off the punishment we must reassert our absolute dedication to Christian values. Homosexuality is evil; the Bible calls for homosexuals to be stoned to death. Abortion is a form of murder and violates one of the Ten Comandments. Divorce is forbidden. If only we Americans would again embrace these values God would again look upon us with favor and such troubles as a bad economy, losing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the low opinions that many foreigners have of our government leaders would all go away.
So, according to their beliefs, the Republicans are doing something to solve the problems of abad economy.
