The 1980s saw great prominence for the rise of the religious right. The beliefs and politics of this group transitioned from a subculture to the mainstream and set the stage for the Culture Wars of the 1990s.
This episode looks at the presidency of Ronald Reagan, the candidacy of Pat Robertson and the rise of the Religious Right in the 1980s. The culmination arrives in 1992 with the onset of the culture wars at the 1992 Republican Convention.
