cast out of the Shrine of the
Little Flower in Royal Oak,
McCarthyism, and the blow-
ing up of school vehicles to
prevent busing in Pontiac as
other examples of the pres-
ence of the religious right over
the years.
"It's the 1990s now, and
they're going back to the grass
roots — going after local gov-
ernments and creating a
strong political base," Ms.
Howell said.
Ms. Godchaux nodded in
agreement. She said she
watched as members of the
religious right waged a war
against the Birmingham
school district, opposing three
of 80 hours in health educa-
tion spent on the topic of ho-
mosexuality.
Although the Birmingham
schools did not change the
curriculum, Ms. Godchaux
does not believe the debate
has ended.
"People need to get in-
formed and vote," Ms.
Godchaux said. "You need to
call candidates and confront
them with issues of concern."
Stealth candidates —viru-
al unknowns in political races
holding tight to the agenda
of the religious right — are

dangerous, Rep. Berman said.
"Even the Republicans are
frightened," Rep. Berman \,
said. "Christians have let
these radicals use their name
and take away their religion.
They need to take their sym-
bols back, take their religion
back. And we all need to take <
our country back."

The best way to do that is
to learn to identify key phras-
es of the movement and mo-
bilize to fight for causes rather
than against the right, Ms.
Dixon said.
"You will never change the "y ,
far right," Ms. Dixon said. "It's
the people in the middle we
need to reach."
Ms. Dixon believes the re-
ligious right has been suc-
cessful in gaining support by
making emotional pleas and
using positive-sounding buz-
zwords like "concerned par-
ents," "crackdown on
pornography" and "family val-
ues."
"Go to meetings. And stay.
Write letters to the editor.
Don't be afraid to be emo-
tional," Ms. Dixon said. "You
can't just quote a dry statis-
tic. You have to be the voices
of the children." El

more close at all levels of state
government," the governor
said.
He pointed to the Miracle
Mission and recalled the re-
cent state commemorative
program in Lansing for the
50th anniversary of the
Warsaw Ghetto uprising.
"The battle against hatred
is our battle," he said. "Let ev-
ery threshold in Michigan and
America be our t3rtress
against bigotry and hate. Let
us not forget that nothing less

than our freedom is at stake."
As governor, Mr. Engler
said it is his mission to help
bring people together to fight
hate, "to put an end to intol-
erance and dependence, to
change Michigan and make it
a better place for our chil-
dren."
He stressed the potential
for positive overseas partner-
ships for business and indus-
try.
"To continue building our
solid relationship, I will soon
