Schaeffer is extremely critical of Sarah Palin...and partner at the head of the new Conservatives Right Glenn Beck who he refers to as an idiot

"What Christians have got to do is to take back this country, one precinct at a time, one neighborhood at a time and one state at a time ... I honestly believe that in my lifetime we will see a country once again governed by Christians ... and Christian values." RALPH REED (Executive director of the Christian Coalition

In the previous post we posted a clip of Frank Schaeffer, now see the whole interview. Frank Schaeffer, a fascinating man who has traveled a strange path to end up where he is today, as a outspoken critic of the Evangelical right and their dangerous twisted agenda. Schaeffer is extremely critical of Sarah Palin and her views and her partner at the head of the new Conservative Republicans Glenn Beck who he refers to as an idiot. His comment about the new right clearly is scathing and shows that it is a radical fringe and the crazy thing is that a lot of the GOP faithful have bought into this craziness and are echoing the philosophy of this lunatic fringe. What does this say about the GOP. He names the names and points out what their agenda and motives are. Included in this Post is a video interview of Frank Schaeffer on Grit TV. Schaeffer's tough no nonsense common sense analysis, of the new Conservative right, stating basically that the emperor has no clothes is refreshing and should be seen by all Americans.

Recommended Book:
Patience with God, Faith for People Who Don't Like religion. by Frank Schaeffer
"Frank Schaeffer has a problem with Dawkins, Hitchens, Harris, Dennett, and the rest of the New Atheists—the self-anointed “Brights.” He also has a problem with the Rick Warrens and Tim LaHayes of the world. The problem is that he doesn’t see much of a difference between the two camps. As Schaeffer puts it, they “often
share the same fallacy: truth claims that reek of false certainties. I believe that there is an alternative that actually matches the way life is lived rather than how we usually talk about belief.”
Sparing no one and nothing, including himself and his fiery evangelical past, and invoking subtleties too easily ignored by the pontificators, Schaeffer adds much-needed nuance to the conversation. “My writing has smoked out so many individuals who seem to be thinking about the same questions. I hope that this book will provide a meeting place for us, the scattered refugees of what I’ll call The Church of Hopeful Uncertainty.”
