Ep. 30: Frank Schaeffer on the Christian Right's Threat to American Democracy

For this episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, I had the great opportunity to talk with Mr. Frank Schaeffer. He is a frequent guest on MSNBC, Free Speech TV, and many other radio and TV outlets. Mr. Schaeffer possesses gifted insight on the rise of the Christian Right in the United States. As a young man, he was there as his father, along with the likes of Jerry Falwell, laid the groundwork for the influence of the Christian Right on the Republican Party. Frank has shared those experiences in his New York Times best-selling book Crazy for God. I have been a longtime admirer of Frank Schaeffer's honesty and truth-telling. In this conversation, he and I talk about the rise of Christian Fascism and its threat to American democracy, the popularity of the movie American Sniper, how the useful idiots of the Religious Right are duped, his insights into the unholy union between the plutocrats and the Christian Right, and touch on matters of faith, spirituality, and religion as they relate to Mr. Schaeffer's new book Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in God.
