Jerry Falwell was a great fundamentalist religious leader and important figure in the social and political movements of the United States; he tried to free America of immorality and liberalism, and during his life he created many centers for rehabilitation and aid to those in need. In the 80s, he, along with other preachers, created The Moral Majority, a movement dedicated to furthering the aims of the Christian Right. It became one of the most significant political forces of its time. This thesis is divided into seven parts: the first discusses Jerry Falwell s life, beliefs, ministries, and goals; the second explains fundamentalism and the themes it embraces; the third demonstrates being a Born-Again and their beliefs; the fourth introduces The Moral Majority movement and its position within society; the fifth studies political and cultural themes in the United States and briefly contrasts it with ours; the sixth talks about the end of Jerry Falwell s life and the opinions of his friends and enemies before and after his death; and the last analyzes questionnaires aimed at finding out American opinion of Jerry Falwell. Nowadays, there are around 50 million American adults who call themselves born again Christians. This group was considered isolated from society due to their extremist beliefs - taking the bible literally and rejecting evolutionary theory. These days, while they maintain their beliefs, thanks to the work of people like Jerry Falwell, they are no longer peripheral; rather they are a strong political voice affecting public policy.
