This week is the second of a three-part series about the religious right. In the first part of this series, we focused on 1945-1960, when America began to think of itself as a Christian nation. In today's episode, we focus on the '60s, '70s, and '80s, when the religious right forms and the Moral Majority begins. We discuss the role that Billy Graham played in politics, second-wave feminism, the Civil Rights Movement, and other impactful events from this period that caused the religious right to not only form, but begin to collapse.
