  • summary: “Consider Frank Schaeffer. The name may not be familiar to you, but Schaeffer’s father, theologian and Presbyterian pastor Francis Schaeffer, was pivotal in the creation of the Religious Right. .. Frank Schaeffer shared his father’s opinions and, as an adult, worked alongside him. He had an insider’s view of the rise of the Religious Right. Father and son were there at the movement’s birth and worked with some of its biggest names. .. What does Frank Schaeffer think about the Religious Right these days? Let’s just say he’s not a fan. He refers to Robertson as “a lunatic” and says Dobson is “a power-crazed political manipulator cynically abusing his followers.” He calls the late Jerry Falwell an “unreconstructed bigot.””
