Falwell Plans for 'Evangelical Revolution'

Seeking to take advantage of the momentum from an election where moral values proved important to voters, the Rev. Jerry Falwell announced Tuesday he has formed a new coalition to guide an "evangelical revolution."

...a decision by the Massachusetts Supreme Court allowing gay marriages "helped energize our people," Falwell said.

And when San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom began performing gay marriages, it "really caught the attention of people of faith in this country, and what we have been saying could happen actually happened," he said.

"The timing could not have been better. That, along with the abortion issues and the terrorism issue, helped us to get our people awakened."

The God Squad sure isn't waiting long to call in its markers. Even if by some bizarre coincidence Bush wanted to move toward the center, Rove knows that his plans for a thousand-year Reich depend on continued support from the evangelicals. So they know they have the entire government by the short hairs.
