In an interview with Newsweek, Richard Land, a leading evangelical who serves as president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, said that evangelicals will support a third party candidate if Rudy Giuliani is the Republican presidential nominee.  After putting George W. Bush in office twice, the Christian right refuses to support any candidate whose anticipated policies could diminish their power and influence in the Republican Party.  Land had this to say about the matter, "... I have been in too many discussions over the last 15 years where evangelical leaders have said, 'The one thing we will never allow to happen is for the Republican Party to take us for granted the way the Democratic Party too often takes the African-American community for granted.'"
