Frank Schaeffer, the man who helped create the religious right

This rings true to me. A very important interview.

Frank Schaeffer is the son of radical evangelical cleric Francis Schaeffer, who was instrumental in creating the modern anti-abortion movement and forging the alliance between the Republican party and evangelical Christians.

Schaeffer has repudiated reactionary politics and become an advocate for social justice. In this riveting, 5.5 minute interview with Full Frontal’s Samantha Bee, Schaeffer lays out the history of the reactionary right in America, and the consequences of the alliance between evangelicals and finance capitalism, from Fox News to the Iraq War.
