"I am sick and tired of hearing about all the radicals"

"Jesus was not a pacifist. He was not a sissy" --Jerry Falwell

"I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America. I point the finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen.'"--Jerry Falwell after the September 11, 2001 attacks

"The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians." Pat Robertson, 1992

Televangelism is the use of television to communicate the Christian faith. The word is a blend of television and evangelism and was coined by Time magazine. A televangelist is a person, often a minister, who has become known for their Christian TV broadcasts. Both terms carry slightly derogatory connotations and are normally only used by critics of the phenomenon.
