Frank Schaeffer: Fears of Fundamentalism

"What you see now is the extreme of Evangelicalism now in the heart of a major political party and this is very worrying to me"

Laura spoke to Frank Schaeffer, one of the important figures in the anti-choice and religious right movements in the United States, introduced to many via Max Blumenthal's book Republican Gomorrah.  Frank Schaeffer wrote a book about growing up in the religious right.  Schaeffer joined Laura on GRITtv for a fascinating interview about his latest book, Patience with God: Faith for People Who Don't Like Religion (or Atheism), his own journey, and how people, religious or irreligious, are all looking for answers to the same questions.
