You do bring up some interesting points and it's difficult to answer, you could easily write a thesis on this subject. I'm not even sure if Republicans are the cause of this attitude or are just the result of this attitude, so it would be very interesting to see what would happen if leaders suddenly changed their tune.

I can only speak from anecdotal stories, but my family, and especially my mother, believe it's okay to pollute the planet since God is "going to fix everything soon" anyway. So she's fine with essentially sitting on her hands while people wreck the planet because it'll be "fixed". I hate that mindset. It's not the mindset of all Christians but I know she isnt the only one who thinks that way.  

Born and raised Catholic. Although I'm no longer a participant in Catholicism, people often forget about the different branches of Christianity. Catholics once used to be hardcore on being strict and to the word of the Bible (Their Interputation at least). Now they are overall one of the most relaxed branches of Christianity. I personally don't know any Catholics who would deny Global Warming or Evolution (Hell I know some who don't give a flying f**k about gay marriage and lean heavily to the left). Although this can be skewed from my own opinion, but I do live in Chicago which is the Catholic center of the US and votes heavily democratic.

 

On a slightly different note, this is where bunching all different branches of Islam into a single group becomes dangerous and derogatory. Just like with Christianity; although the ideal solution would to be one day to reject all religion (as unlikely as that'll be for the foreseeable future).
