Summary

  • Seizing the pro-family agenda, Republican strategists midwife a brood of new Christian political organizations, most notably Jerry Falwell's Moral Majority. These groups experience a heady overnight success, registering millions of evangelical voters and helping sweep Ronald Reagan into office. Yet once in the White House, his mainline advisors actively suppress the traditional values issues. Evangelical leaders are forced to choose between 'speaking the truth' and 'going along to get along' in the political realm."
