The Christian Right and the Rising Power of the Evangelical Political Movement

The Christian right has no religious legitimacy. It is a mass political movement. It ignores the core values of the Christian religion, summed up by Jesus in the sermon on the mount, and the core values of American democracy. They are not biblical literalists as they claim- but selective literalists choosing bits and pieces of the Bible that conform to their ideology and bigotry and ignoring, distorting or making up the rest. ~Chris Hedges

The movement is not Christian (as in actual followers of Christ's teaching)and not conservative. It is ultra authoritarian\liberal and fast and loose with the words of Christ.
