Phyllis Schlafly died in 2016 at the age of 92, after a long life of service to her country–which is to say, service that benefited us all.

R.I.P. Phyllis Schlafly… American Hero

She was best known for single-handedly raising up the opposition that defeated the so-called “Equal Rights Amendment,” which at the time (1972) needed only three more states for passage. God only knew what mischief that would have led to–but Phyllis Schlafly had a pretty good idea of it. She was the first to see through the euphemism.

I interviewed her in 2009. I didn’t know she was recovering from a serious injury at the time, or I never would have bothered her. But her manner was so gracious, you’d never guess she was in pain.

God does raise up heroes for us. And one of them was Phyllis Schlafly. For whom we give God thanks.

  1. She was, indeed, a very wise, caring, intelligent person who understood the meaning of things instead of trying to a personal spin on everything. I really admired her.

  2. Don’t know much about her other when I was in UCLA political science undergraduate studies I learn she’s a fighter for Christian Conservative causes…salute to her!
