Conservative activist Paul Weyrich, a great ally of Liberty University founder Dr. Jerry Falwell, died on Thursday at age 66. Best known for coining the term “Moral Majority,” Weyrich was a strong figure in the Christian political movement that he co-founded along with Falwell and Tim LaHaye. The Moral Majority thrived throughout the 1980s, with a membership including Catholics, Evangelicals, Mormons and Jews who agreed on certain core social issues.
