Church and State: The Role of Spirituality in Politics, Watch Frank Schaeffer’s UCLA/Hammer Museum Talk



How did the religious right ensnare my family? I explored this at UCLA at a Hammer Museum talk I think you’ll find interesting. Here’s my journey from the Led Zeppelin to Ronald Reagan, from a kid in a mission to Congressman Jack Kemp’s basement… Nepotism is the order of the day in evangelical circles…

P.S. The host introduces me as “Dr. Schaeffer” that’s not me! My son John always jokes with me when I go speak at places like the Harvard Kennedy School or Princeton to “Make sure you ask them to give you an honorary high school diploma Dad!” Please Watch, Laugh, enjoy… !

If you want to know where my head is at now… please read this new book, Frank Schaeffer is a writer. His latest book –WHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD: How to give love, create beauty and find peace
