1/ I gave an interview in French on the Christian Right and the upcoming Canadian elections. I'm grateful to have been able to speak about some of these less known issues in the French media. For those who don't read French, here's a summary.
2/ I explained that the Christian Right is a politico-religious coalition with a clear purpose. One of the main goals is that the policies of the country be aligned with their own understanding of what they see as Judaeo-Christian values (anti-abortion, LGBTQ rights, etc). #elx43
3/ This politico-religious coalition is mainly comprised of conservative evangelicals, Catholics and Protestants. The "evangelical" label has become a problematic catchall term, and some evangelicals characterize themselves as the pure and original form Protestantism.
4/ The goal of this coalition is not just political, it's also about social transformation. To exercise "dominion," they must change the way people think by penetrating what they call "spheres of culture" (religion, education, family, media, arts, politics, and the economy). #7MM
6/ Of course, even if this will not necessarily happen overnight, we must be aware that such groups exist. They have the ability to mobilize voters who share their values in order to provoke the incremental social transformation they envision.
5/ According to their understanding, there are leaders and influencers in each of these "spheres of culture." Changing the culture of any given sphere requires one to "climb to the top" and become a key influencer. This is their strategy for social transformation.
