Washington D.C. – Following news of the death of religious-right broadcaster and political activist Pat Robertson, People For the American Way President Svante Myrick released the following statement:

“Pat Robertson was a key figure in the rise of the authoritarian religious-right political movement. He helped build the movement’s massive media, legal, and political infrastructure, which today is pushing harmful attacks on the freedom to learn, LGBTQ equality, reproductive choice, church-state separation and more. People For the American Way was founded in response to attacks on democratic values by Robertson and other televangelists, and will continue to mobilize Americans in defense of truth, justice, and the American Way.”
