Daily Kos: Akinola Anglican U.S. Leader Joins the Religious Right

Frederick Clarkson at Daily Kos:

In the minds of many observers, the schismatic former Episcopalians aligned with the Institute on Religion and Democracy had not really migrated into the Religious Right. The Religious Right was more the territory of fiery Southern Baptists and apocalyptic Pentecostals than starchy Episcopalians.

But times do change. (emphasis mine)

Chunks of the American Episcopal Church have broken off (including the church of Washington Post columnist and former Bush speechwriter Michael (“Axis of Evil”) Gerson) and placed themselves under the authority of the fiercely anti-gay, anti-Muslim Archbishop Akinola of Nigeria. Akinola’s missionary bishop to the United States is the Rev. Martyn Minns — who recently spoke at the Family Research Council’s Values Voters Summit in DC — the premeir annual political conference of the Religious Right.
