Frank Schaeffer: Christian religious extremism leading to persecution of LGBT people

Frank Schaeffer, former fundamentalist evangelical and son of famed evangelical theologian Francis Schaeffer, is worried that Christian conservatives will push America to the brink of catastrophe because of intolerance, bigotry, biblical literalism and political extremism. We’ll talk with him about his autobiographical novel, And God said Billy. The book alludes to his real professional and spiritual journey. One character in his book is based on Archbishop Lazar Puhalo of All Saints Canadian Orthodox Monastery in British Columbia.
