The historic roots of the Moral Majority are deftly described in a stanza from Curt Sytsma’s satiric poem, “A Humanist Manifesto”:
In every age, the bigot’s rage
Requires another focus,
Another devil forced on stage
By hatred’s hocus-pocus:
The devil used to be the Jew
And then it was the witches;
And then it was the Negroes who
Were digging in the ditches.
The devil once was colored pink
And labeled communistic;
Now, all at once, in just a blink,
The devil’s humanistic.
