Do evangelicals hate Jesus?

Sociologist Phil Zuckerman is asking the question -- and floating some explanations...
...The results from a recent poll published by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life reveal what social scientists have known for a long time: White Evangelical Christians are the group least likely to support politicians or policies that reflect the actual teachings of Jesus. It is perhaps one of the strangest, most dumb-founding ironies in contemporary American culture. Evangelical Christians, who most fiercely proclaim to have a personal relationship with Christ, who most confidently declare their belief that the Bible is the inerrant word of God, who go to church on a regular basis, pray daily, listen to Christian music, and place God and His Only Begotten Son at the center of their lives, are simultaneously the very people most likely to reject his teachings and despise his radical message... ~ Huff

They like Jesus, they just don't like what He asks them to do. I mean, why change your life if you like it the way it is already? This Jesus is just a ticket, not a King of a Kingdom or maybe the Christians just don't listen to the King. Are they really part of the Kingdom?
