Pat Robertson's Christian Coalition Aims For Power
Pat Robertson's political action organization, the Christian Coalition, has
formed 125 chapters in 43 states, according to the group's executive director.
In a recent membership recruitment letter, Ralph Reed Jr. said the group,
founded by Robertson in 1989, intends to restore the greatness of America
"through a return to moral strength."
We are a coalition of pro-family Catholics and Evangelicals working together
to promote Bibical values in politics and public policy," Reed said.
In a copy of the group's magazine, The Christian American, Reed said the
coalition's 10 year plan intends to make it "the most powerful political
organization of its kind by the year 2000."
The newspaper said a national briefing for state affiliates in Washington
D.C. eariler this year featured speakers such as Republican stategist
Morton Blackwell, Paul Weyrich of the Free Congress Foundation, Gary Bauer
of James Dobson's Family Research Council and Phyllis Schlafly of the Eagle
Among the topics covered was "how to target resources effectively for the
all important 1992 election cycle."
The organization focuses on a variety of social issues. A recent fund
raising letter featured a strong endorsement by Robertson of education
vouchers for parochial and other private schools.
