RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2020.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Editorial notes
  • needs references, wikification

Note: This is taken from a paper User:Researcher wrote about the religious right for a Master's level Poli Sci course. He will come back and edit it more later, but feel free to work on it and fix it up some. I also have a ton of references, also to be added later. Probably after workResearcher 16:02, 25 September 2007 (EDT)

I just copyedited it to be more of an RW joynt; if Researcher prefers we could move it to the essay namespace. I wish he'd left us those references :( Also, I think the article title should be "Religious right", there's no reason to capitalize "right" (and I uncapped it throughout the article). humanUser talk:Human 20:29, 11 May 2008 (EDT)
I'll try to get those for you soon. (It's on a saved hard drive somewhere.) Researcher 14:42, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
Oh hey, cool, hi. I thought you were on sabbatical or something. humanUser talk:Human 19:52, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
I've been really freaking busy, and don't really have time to devote to this website right now. (And that looks like it may be permanent, actually...) but I've not forgotten about everyone. I haven't yet found that; if you want to move it to essay until I find the original, with all of the citations, feel free. Researcher 17:17, 25 May 2008 (EDT)
Hey, thanks for popping in! If you don;t come back much we will continue to miss you :(. Maybe I will... undo my edits and move it to essay to "store" it until you perhaps have time to finish it up. ħψɱɐUser talk:Human 22:12, 25 May 2008 (EDT)

Grr, argh[edit]

OK, the former roommate who has the hard drive hasn't been very forthcoming, and it has a LOT of my grad school work on it. (Including a lengthy paper on the causes of "covenant marriage" legislation that could also be useful to this site.) I'm still working on getting it. Researcher 18:01, 25 November 2008 (EST)

Where is this about?

Are Benny XVI and Ian Paisley also not of the religious right? — Unsigned, by: 82.198.250.66 / talk / contribs 16:26, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

This paper was based explicitly on the American Religious Right, as a collection of interest groups. It was part of some research I did while working on my first Master's. Researcher (talk) 16:33, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Not to be confused with the (ir)religious left or with the (ir)religious wrong? 212.85.6.26 (talk) 18:33, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Recent Events[edit]

Given Judge Moore's return to the national spotlight with this shameful episode in Alabama, shouldn't this section be updated to reflect it? Jwebb (talk) 12:52, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Probably. Why don't you? (Hint: just click "Edit") Scream!! (talk) 13:00, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Ann Coulter and Ted Nugent[edit]

Why the heck were they removed from the list?

Putin? Really?[edit]

Characterizing Vladimir Putin as the Russian equivalent of U.S. Religious Right seems a bit off. For example, Putin has actually spoken against the attempts to outlaw abortions (e.g. http://tass.com/society/981087). Also, Putin has always been very apprehensive when having been asked about his personal religious views. As far as I know, he has even refused to explicitly state whether he is a member of the Orthodox Church or whether he believes in God (he dodged the question in 2007 TIME interview). Of course, he is certainly a religious conservative (or feigning to be one) but of very different breed than the typical American "Religious Right" political figures who are vocal about their Christian beliefs and invoke Jesus, Bible and Christianity in every sentence and issue. 188.238.77.71 (talk) 23:36, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

Well off. Thanks for mentioning it. — Dysk (contribs) 23:54, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
