Podcast Ep. 128: Frank Schaeffer, Former Evangelical Christian Leader

Our latest podcast guest is Frank Schaeffer, one of the architects — and now one of the chief critics — of the Religious Right.


In another life, Frank Schaeffer would probably be an evangelical leader and someone with a powerful position in conservative politics. His father was the influential Christian theologian Francis Schaeffer and Frank himself, along with his father, helped create the modern Religious Right.

Frank is the author of Crazy for God: How I Grew Up As One Of The Elect, Helped Found The Religious Right, And Lived To Take All (Or Almost All) Of It Back and, more recently, Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in God.

We spoke about his role in creating the Religious Right, why evangelicals are flocking to Donald Trump when he shares almost none of their values, and what he would say to anyone who might vote for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein.
