Falwell and that old-time religion

At The Guardian, now edited by former American Prospect editor Michael Tomasky, there's a terrific piece by Michelle Goldberg in which she reveals the segregationist roots of the Moral Majority salesman, the late Rev. Jerry Falwell.

In today's Washington Post, Hanna Rosin offers up a generational look at the post-Falwell religious right. Among those she cites as the movement's next big things is the very scary Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention.
