The evangelical right gets a lot of airtime on cable, radio, television and
in the mass media in general. But, a lot of the messages you hear are
distilled for a mainstream audience. So what’s really being said behind the
scenes? This week, Abby Scher takes us behind the scenes to the "Values
Voter Summit" in Washington, DC, where leaders of the Christian right
gathered to talk about gay marriage, abortion, and terrorism. With the
upcoming elections, evangelical right leaders say there are two wars America
is fighting: terrorism and the war for values.

Scher, editor of Public Eye, a publication that monitors the activities and
agenda of the Christian right, attended the summit in September 2006, along
with dozens of other liberal activists.
