(Interview) How a founding father of the religious right lost religious faith and revised his stance on abortion.
I caught this interview on NPR today and found it extremely interesting. In this interview, Frank Schaeffer explains how he formerly pushed vigorously for religious conservatives to get into politics and take up religious issues, especially the issue of abortion. He talks about how the religious right, which he feels like he helped create, grew into a monster that he no longer relates to. He explains how he voted democrat for the first time ever in this past election, how his stance on abortion has been revised, and how his feelings about religion have changed dramatically. I enjoyed it, and I thought there might be one or two people around the site who would enjoy it, too. Maybe?

A place common to all will be maintained by none. A religion common to all is perhaps not much different.
