People For the American Way was founded in the early 80s to counteract the nascent Religious Right — Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell in particular. Through the 80s and 90s, PFAW staff recorded virtually every episode of the 700 Club.
In the lead up to Robertson’s 1988 presidential campaign, we released a compilation of clips highlighting his controversial and outlandish views on the issues of the day. The compilation came to be known as the “Pat Robertson Film Festival.” We recently posted all seven segments on YouTube.
