The Christian Right:
The Christian Right: Neither Christian Nor Right, questions the movement’s claim to be Christian as well as its assertion to be “Right.” The Christian Right is basically a Fundamentalist political movement. Under scrutiny, Fundamentalism is a leftist theology and a rehash of religious beliefs considered unacceptable by the early Church Fathers and current mainstream Christianity. More significantly, the policies and political agenda of the Christian Right on issues of immigration, welfare, the death penalty and gun control, to name a few, contrast sharply with the teachings of Jesus. The Christian Right: Neither Christian Nor Right states that The Christian Right’s political roots are leftist. Its political forbearers, the Pilgrim Puritans, belong to a lineage of leftist movements through history the used the Old, not the New Testament as its basis of government. The heroes of the Christian Right’s cohort, the Tea Party, were a band of leftist bent on overthrowing a government. Regardless of the outcome of the 2016 elections, the 2018 midterm elections look with the Christian Right and Tea Party as major players.
