The Christian Right

I had a little time this morning so I caught up on my on-line comic reading.
One of my favorites is Sinfest by Tatsuya Ishida


About a week ago I was reading where Jerry Falwell was bragging that he was now the king maker of the Republican party. He didn't say it like that but it's what he meant.


WASHINGTON — The Rev. Jerry Falwell boasted Friday that evangelical Christians, after nearly 25 years of increasing political activism, now control the Republican Party and the fate of President Bush in the November election.

"The Republican Party does not have the head count to elect a president without the support of religious conservatives," Falwell said at an election training conference of the Christian Coalition.

Falwell said evangelical Christians are now "by far the largest constituency" within the Republican Party, their route to dominance beginning in 1979 with his founding of the Moral Majority, a precursor to the Christian Coalition.
