The religious right at 33

[Posted at Bene Diction Blogs On June 8, 2012] An interesting item was just posted at The Atlantic magazine’s website.

Jonathan Merritt notes that The Moral Majority was founded 33 years ago today, and talks about his own interaction with Jerry Falwell as a potential Liberty University student wanting some more information.

He goes on to suggest that while the US church has more political clout these days, it may have lost its way as a result of politicizing. But, I’ll just point you to what he wrote and let you consider what he has to say for yourself.
