A son of conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly has publicly revealed that he is homosexual, while at the same time defending his mother's political views and the Republican Party's "family values" campaign theme. "The family values movement is not anti-gay," said John F.

This may come as a surprise, but Phyllis Schlafly, legendary conservative and leader (that is, victor) in the battle against the Equal Rights Amendment, is alive and well and still publishing books.

" If you've heard about this book, it might be because you read an interview with the authors on the Huffington Post with the headline "Feminists Love Divorce!"

In the world of archconservative Phyllis Schlafly, men are men and women are housewives--even if they work. In Sarah Weddington's world, men are men and women are whatever they want to be. Thursday night, Schlafly, 65, the matron saint of family-centered womanhood, and Weddington, 44, a Texas lawyer who won the landmark Roe vs. Wade case in 1973 that legalized abortion, debated inside the Bren Events Center at UC Irvine before an audience of about 800.

She's been called a national nag, been splattered in the face by a pie hit man and caused such fits among feminists that one declared, "I'd like to burn you at the stake." Now in her 50th year of public life--a career spent fighting communism, feminism, abortion and other left-wing evils--Phyllis Schlafly is hooked on phonics. Yes, phonics. Foniks. The 71-year-old conservative says she'd rather be remembered for deep-sixing illiteracy than torpedoing the Equal Rights Amendment.

Consumer advocate Ralph Nader and conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly were unlikely allies Tuesday in urging Congress to write broadcasting's Fairness Doctrine into law. Schlafly complained about an "outrageous and blatant anti-Reagan bias of the TV network newscasts," which she said had worsened since the doctrine's proposed elimination. Nader called the doctrine "entirely appropriate."
