American Fundamentalists

From 1930 to 1970, American Fundamentalists worked within their churches.  President Nixon’s silent majority became the Moral Majority in 1979 and a more active political movement.  The Christian Coalition with Pat Robertson (1930 -) and Ralph E. Reed (1961-) stressed family values.  Although most Protestant Churches are declining about 1% a year, Fundamentalist Protestant Churches grow by 1% a year.  Television has spanned a whole set of TV fundamental evangelists such as Jerry Falwell (1933-2007), Jimmy Swaggart (1935 -) among many others.
