As I have written about many times before, while the religious right movement today makes a lot of its bones on hating on LGBTQ people and trying to control women’s bodies, it began seeking and collecting political power in order to defend Jim Crow and segregation.

The founders of the Moral Majority and all their cousin movements came together in the 1970s on purely racist motivation.

They were outraged that the racist Bob Jones University lost its tax exempt status because of the vicious ways they treated Black people.

The religious right is founded on vicious. It is founded on racism. It is founded on evil.

The more we can point that out, the better.
