).
Along with Robertson’s
establishing radio CBN including television communications “The 700 Club” to spread CC ideas,
he also established Regent University. Alone from Robertson’s Regent Law School, 150 graduates
work within the President George W. Bush Administration and Department of Justice, including
Monica Goodling (Moyers 2007; Lithwick 2007; Savage 2007;

Another Christian Right Movement advocate, Jerry Falwell, a Baptist minister from Virginia,
created the “Moral Majority in 1979; a New Christian Right political lobby group for evangelical
Christians. In all three Protestant Right scenarios the most important goals were and continue to
be: to advocate Conservative Christian religious morality, economic liberalism, small government,
deregulation, privatization, free trade, lower taxes, moral laws according to fundamentalist dogma;
subversion of feminism, and to rid Social Security and Medicare, deny homosexual marriage, stop
abortions from taking place, and to place followers [activists] into all areas of government,
