Pulpits aflame with politics? Religious Right prepares for 2012 elections

I’m often asked what the Religious Right is up to these days. Some people, noting the death of the Rev. Jerry Falwell in 2007 and the aging of leaders like Pat Robertson and Donald Wildmon, assume the movement is slowing down. Unfortunately, that’s just not the case.

I spent the day on Friday at Ralph Reed’s Faith & Freedom Conference and Strategy Briefing here in Washington, D.C. The list of speakers included many presidential hopefuls, congressional leaders and Religious Right strategists who came to stir their base into action.
