It was just yesterday that I wrote a post about Mike Huckabee’s ties to James Robison, a now rather obscure figure who, back in the 1980s, was a powerful Religious Right leader.
In that post, I noted that Robison was still active and had recently had Jim Garlow on his program. Shortly after that post went up, some glitch on Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition website caused an old post to show up in my RSS reader and lo and behold it was video from last year of Reed appearing on Robison’s show to pitch the need for his new organization on the grounds that “democracy doesn’t really work at all unless there’s a citizenry animated by a moral code that derives from their faith in God.”
For his part, Robison stated his conviction that the Constitution was written so as to be in “harmony with Biblical truth” and Judeo-Christian ethic, while warning that the country was “racing toward Marxism” and complaining that “the most discriminated against people on the planet are Christians today.”
The clip below is the second part of the interview – you can see Part I here:
I realize that I can’t declare that James Robison is attempting making a return to prominence among the Religious Right based on three pretty random appearances by him on this blog in the last week … but it is still kind of odd that I’m mentioning him for the third time in one week after having written about him only one time in the last four years.
