filiation must be exposed

The Christian-right can-
didates have learned to
avoid contact with main-
stream voters and the media
r> in order to evade scrutiny
during the campaign.
' "They hide what they're
doing and do it in a much
more diplomatic way," said
San Antonio's Cohen. "It
makes the work much more
difficult."
In San Diego, the JCRC
countered that by making
sure that someone from the
Jewish community attended
each pre-election forum to
ask the candidates specific
questions about their posi-
tions on teaching
"creationism," about where
their kids go to school, how
long they've lived in the
district, and their views on
sex education and subsidized
breakfast and lunch pro-
grams.

"They frequently back off
what they say when they
realize people are paying at-
tention to what they're do-
ing," said Freeman of People
for the American Way.
These kinds of efforts by
mainstream community
groups made a significant
difference between the 1990
and 1992 elections in San
Diego, he said.
In 1990, two-thirds of the
90 Christian Coalition-
endorsed candidates won
seats on various local
boards. In 1992, half that
number succeeded.
One problem in fighting
the efforts of the religious
right in some towns is that
the traditional coalition
partners of the Jewish com-
munity in efforts against the
religious right —mainline
Protestant and Catholic
churches — have distanced
themselves from the issue
because they are losing so
many of their own members
to evangelical congregations
and are afraid of alienating
more.

"What support we used to
be able to rally with a few
phone calls has evaporated,"
said Roseman of San Diego.
"Our only allies are Seventh
Day Adventists and
Unitarians. It's going to be a
lonely fight."
Jewish activists also face a
serious challenge within
their own community.
The religious right is
building its success on work
at the grass-roots level.
But community relations
professionals find that Jews
are unwilling to devote the
time and energy it takes to
counter this type of vol-
unteer effort, say observers.
