Overview

"The religious right" is shorthand for an informal alliance of conservative and evangelical/"fundamentalist" groups in the United States.

They claim to be working towards the improvement of morality in American society, but their idea of what constitutes "morality" seems to be extremely poor; of all the religious groups and all the right-wing groups, the religious right seems to have the very worst grasp of morality. Religious right groups have shown that they are willing to use virtually any form of rhetorical deception – up to and including outright lies – in the service of this supposed morality; current examples include the religious right's ongoing fights against evolution and homosexuality.

This is a growing seedling article. You can help Issuepedia by watering it.

Many (though perhaps not all) members of the religious right could also be described as Christofascists.
