@girlsreallyrule Let this sink in, and everything else will make sense: Race, NOT #abortion was the FOUNDING issue of the religious right.………
@girlsreallyrule “In 1971, two years before Roe v. Wade legalized abortion, the biggest white evangelical group in America, the Southern Baptist Convention, supported its legalization. The group continued that support through much of the 1970s. “
@girlsreallyrule And the late Jerry Falwell, founder of the Moral Majority, did not give his first antiabortion speech until 1978, five years after Roe.
@girlsreallyrule "I know we don't like apartheid, but the blacks in South Africa, in Soweto, don't have it all that bad."

— Rev Pat Robertson
@girlsreallyrule Before the Moral majority found abortion — they were Dixie Democrats. In fact, Margret Sanger (although radical in her youth)joined the Republican Party later in life (she despised Catholics) and held “Planned Parenthood” meetings AND Women Republican Club meetings in her house.
@girlsreallyrule And make no mistake many of ‘em if you remove the religious garb are still Dixie ...
@girlsreallyrule Grasping the racial factor in the Republican Party - starting with the Lily White movement - helps explain their love ❤️ for Trump — this is centuries in the making.
@girlsreallyrule “In 1976 #SCOTUS ruled against segregated private schools. Then courts went after the tax exemptions of these private all-white Southern schools, or so-called segregation academies, like Falwell’s Liberty Christian Academy.”
@girlsreallyrule Oh, what sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees.Hypocrites! For you cross land and sea to make one convert, and then you turn that person into twice the child of hell you yourselves are!

Founder of “The Way” but later referred to as “Christianity”.
