Coston, Patrick Casey

Clashes between the traditional Republican leadership and the Religious Right have surfaced with increasing regularity, and the basic social agenda of the Religious Right is diametrically opposed to the younger, more libertarian "Yuppie" voting bloc. The main thrust of this paper is first, to examine the true nature end goals of this emerging interest group; and second, to see if the Religious Right will prove to be a valuable asset or a disintegrating acid on the bonds which hold together the Republican coalition. This formidable task will be accomp11shed by beginning with a basic background on the religious roots of the movement, followed by a brief historical sketch and a description of the main socio-political agenda of this interest group. A solid understanding of these preceding concepts will facilitate a more well-balanced conception of what the Religious Right is and what it seeks to accomplish.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
