RNS – The fundamentalist who created today’s conservative template

– McIntire, who died in 2002 at the age of 95, left mainline Presbyterianism during the fundamentalist-modernist wars of the 1920s and never looked back. When Billy Graham & Co. invented the “new evangelicalism” after World War II, McIntire became the leader of the fundamentalist opposition, establishing the American Council of Christian Churches as an alternative to Graham’s National Association of Evangelicals.

– Today it is McIntire’s model that defines evangelical political engagement.

Right-wing populist mobilization, Christian nationalism, opposition to government health care mandates — somewhere McIntire is smiling today.
