The New Christian Right: Communication, Conflict, and the Politics of Language.
Noting that language and politics both grow out of the underlying processes of social agreement and dispute, this paper analyzes the political language of the New Christian Right (NCR) movement as it is found in the national print media. Various sections of the paper discuss the following: (1) the background of the NCR, the characteristics of the organizations comprising it, and the nature of the constituency of those organizations; (2) the change in the NCR from a fundamentalist insurgency movement to a special interest group, prompted in part by the election of a politically conservative President of the United States; and (3) the future of the NCR.
