A Christian political organization, founded by Jerry Falwell, that, despite its infamy, was a pretty important force in American politics. As the joke goes, it was neither moral nor a majority - but "Bible-believin'" xians were a vast, untapped market that provided the 70's "New Right" another link in its coalition-building, and it has brought us the Conservative Age. Pet issues: abortion ("is murder"), prayer in schools, etc. Progeny: the Christian Coalition, et al.
