9. Summer of 1980.
I remember reading at that time in either Newsweek or Time how Jerry Falwell had formed the Christian Coalition and was flexing his political muscle with the Reagan campaign and the latter was warmly responding to the overture. A few weeks later, the newspapers published a story about the minister who said that God does not hear the prayers of Jews. Falwell distanced himself from the minister but did not condemn the statement.

After Falwell tested the waters, Pat Robertson became a force to be reckoned with.
