I heard a U.S. Senator speak this afternoon about his 2006 bid, and how the "religious right" is continuing to organize around this absurd Schiavo case to mobilize their base.
We ought to call them "religious fundamentalists" instead of the "religious right."
First because the former is more accurate.
Second because "fundamentalist" sounds scary.
Third because "right" is a synonym for "correct" and that's not something we want to associate with our political opponents.
So don't use the term "religious right" and if you see anyone in print ever using it again, email them the better term.
Frame the debate!
