The Religious Right is upset (again). They’ve decided that it hurts their feefees when we refer to them as the religious right and they’re not going to take it anymore (via: Pam Spalding):
The term “Religious Right” pops up every election cycle, but leaders often identified with the political movement say that while their constituencies remain strong, the catchphrase deserves a proper burial.
However, several politically conservative evangelicals said in interviews that they do not want to be identified with the “Religious Right,” “Christian Right,” “Moral Majority,” or other phrases still thrown around in journalism and academia.
As you can probably guess from the title I’m somewhat partial to calling them fuckwits. How about you? What do you think we should call ‘em instead?
