Chip Berlet writes about the Christian Right and their hopes for regaining political power in 07 and 08.
Who will be setting the agenda for the Christian Right in 2007? Several groups would like to assume that role, although they will have to figure out exactly what happened in the 2006 midterm elections and how to ensure that White Christian evangelicals vote the Christian Right party line in 2008.
Berlet profiles the actions of Tony Perkins and the Family Research Council, James Dobson and Focus on the Family, and Gary Bauer and the Americans United to Preserve Marriage. Make no mistake, these groups understand their loss of political power and are focused on regaining influence in 2008. All are in my news filter under the tag "bad religion".
