How to understand the Roy Moore “win”?
While Rousas Rushdoony and my dad Francis Schaeffer, are virtually unknown outside Christian right-wing circles, their teachings, co-opted by those with political agendas like Roy Moore, have taken on lives of their own.
Fueled by the political writings of Rushdoony and the social activism of my dad (Schaeffer), and energized by the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade, Jerry Falwell and Tim LaHaye launched the Moral Majority in 1979. That same year, Beverly LaHaye started Concerned Women for America as a biblical counterpoint to the National Organization for Women. Since then the Christian Right has seldom looked back, even as it has taken on wildly apocalyptic overtones.
Now Bannon cashes in on this 40 years curve of hate for the government…and we get Trump, then Moore and ALL of this is fueled by white evangelicals….
