This blog was created to monitor the rise in influence of a new variant of the extremist Religious Right, a movement called the New Apostolic Reformation. It features the work of several writers and reposts occasional pieces originally appearing at Talk2Action.org, as well as original posts for NARWatch.com. Some of the more regularly featured writers for NARWatch are:
Rachel Tabachnick is a researcher/writer/speaker on issues pertaining to the impact of the Religious Right on policy and politics in areas including education, economics, environment, and foreign policy.

Paul Rosenberg has been involved in political activism since the Civil Rights and Anti-War movements of the 1960s, when he was in high school. Although his political writing began at this time, he did not begin writing professionally until 1994, beginning with op-eds and book reviews (over 300 published), primarily for daily and weekly newspapers and for Publishers Weekly. He was one of the first wave of paid online political writers in the late 1990s at Intellectual Capital.com, and was also deeply involved with the Los Angeles Indymedia Center 2000-2002, after which he joined Random Lengths News, an alternative bi-weekly in the Los Angeles harbor area, as a writer and editor, where he now serves as senior editor. In October 2002, he wrote one of five stories that shared that year’s Project Censored award for exposing the roots of the neo-conservative obsession with military world domination, dating back to the Bush I administration and beyond. He has blogged at several places, most prominently as a front-pager at Open Left from 2007 until it closed in February 2011. He currently writes op-eds for Al Jazeera English, writes on politics, religion and economics for Alternet, and blogs at Megre-Left.com.
