Fundamentalism: the new Christian right

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In the late 1970s, a combination of right-wing activists and leading televangelists mobilized a section of conservative Protestants to campaign on a range of socio-moral issues. Although the NCR attracted considerable publicity and was effective in a variety of local campaigns, it failed to achieve its main goals and evolved into a Republican party pressure group. Understanding why it failed allows us to see the importance of toleration and the division of the public from the private for maintaining social harmony in culturally diverse modern democracies.
