The resurgence during the Reagan administration of right-wing organizations--like Jerry Falwell's Moral Majority--committed to bringing religion back into American politics, reflects the determination of fundamentalists to fight against a perceived domination that threatens the autonomy of conservative Protestantism from a liberal and cosmopolitan elite. The fundamentalists, however, have been forced into alliances with conservative Catholics and Jews, and other secular conservatives, in their quest for political strength; and, inherent tensions of this coalition building effort has worked against the cause, being in large part responsible for the relative failure of the movement to make larger inroads into American popular politics.
