From a friend in the movement:
Please know that most of the religious-righties I know aren’t paying attention to the Falwells and Robertsons any more. Moral Majority is long dead. Christian Coalition is a barely breathing shell of a group now. But the media singles these two out like they’re still adulated by the religious-right grass roots. Please. Better modern hate figures for the ACLU types would be James Dobson, or Chuck Colson.
This outburst from Pat is nothing compared to his last media outbreak, when he was praying for Supreme Court justices to retire because of ill health (last summer). But on your main point — Robertson and his toll-free-line-to-God talk — remember that the Openly Gay Bishop of NH has also rambled frequently about how God is directing him to liberate Christendom….
