We visit with one of the most conservative, Christian Republican delegations in the country --- in Alabama --- to find out how ready they are to welcome gay Republicans and pro-choice Republicans into the fold. At our request, one of the most conservative Alabamans agrees to sit down with a gay Republican to hash out their differences. Plus other stories.
