Please unlock this for editing

It would be nice if this page was unlocked for editing, as to say the least, it is rather short.--ElliottRosewater 12:34, 17 February 2008 (EST)

OK, but our rules will be enforced.--Aschlafly 12:49, 17 February 2008 (EST)

"Bunch of losers"

It'd be nice if we could also add Mrs. Schlafly's description of the protesters as "a bunch of losers" [1] Wandering 22:54, 17 May 2008 (EDT)

I'm not sure that quote captures the insight and style as well.--Aschlafly 22:57, 17 May 2008 (EDT)
I believe it captures a certain amount of insight into the style of Mrs. Schlafly, so to speak. Wandering 23:02, 17 May 2008 (EDT)

I found a reference for the first lady designation located here and would like to add it. Thank you.--JasonM 21:53, 5 October 2008 (EDT)

The references is done. Thank you so much. --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 07:03, 6 October 2008 (EDT)

Category Change

As per the [[Category:Writers]] page, I moved all of the contents to [[Category:Authors]] except for this page. Anyone with unlocking ability wish to take this on? Thanks! WesleySHello! 20:35, 30 November 2008 (EST)

Good suggestion. Thanks much and Godspeed.--Aschlafly 20:38, 30 November 2008 (EST)
Thanks, Mr. Schlafly. WesleySHello! 21:00, 30 November 2008 (EST)

Her views vs. the American Left

If anyone would like to help me contrast the views of Phyllis Schlafly with the views of the American Left, we can unprotect the article.

People typically just say 'I disagree' or 'Her views are outrageous', but they don't say what they disagree with or why. Maybe they don't even know. --Ed Poor Talk 12:50, 10 December 2008 (EST)

Sure. I know a bit about her views from studying the Goldwater campaign, so perhaps I can be of some use. - Rod Weathers 12:57, 10 December 2008 (EST)
I respect her a great deal, but disagree with several of her views and would be willing to contribute to an analysis of them (not as a "representative liberal", but as someone who disagrees on specific issues themselves). The first example that comes to mind is Mrs. Schlafly's view that restraining orders are, in general, unfair to men and a tool of the feminist agenda [1]. Another is her contention that spousal rape is not comparable to rape by a stranger, because when a woman marries she's consented to sex, and as long as no other beatings or violence take place a husband has the right to force a sex act on his wife even when she's unwilling. [2] --DinsdaleP 13:17, 10 December 2008 (EST)
Dinsdale, we're not here to discuss your views or disagreements on the matter, but rather her relation to a broad political movement. - Rod Weathers 13:29, 10 December 2008 (EST)
Then I'm happy to stay out of it. The reason I posted here was in response to Ed Poor's statement above that "People typically just say 'I disagree' or 'Her views are outrageous', but they don't say what they disagree with or why. Maybe they don't even know.". I'm willing to provide some specific examples that are supposedly never provided, but if this is unwelcome then I'll stay out of this. --DinsdaleP 13:35, 10 December 2008 (EST)

Conservative Censorship? lol

Why was the John Schlafly's page listed as deleted yet still got info? is it because he has came out of the closet in 1992? I would post it there but everything is locked up. Now off to edit :) so i'm not in violation of the 9/10th rules --DavidS 17:57, 30 March 2013 (EDT)
Any particular relevance to your comments? other than marking yourself as an obnoxious pain in the arse? OscarO 18:03, 30 March 2013 (EDT)

Book and legacy

We should have something about her recently-published book on Donald Trump.

And, gosh, she'll be missed! --Ed Poor Talk 20:37, 5 September 2016 (EDT)

My condolences to the Schlafly family. Phyllis did so much for all of us over the years. Progressingamerica (talk) 21:03, 5 September 2016 (EDT)
My condolences as well! She will be missed! --David B (TALK) 21:10, 5 September 2016 (EDT)

I created a stub article at Wikipedia about her latest book. [2] --Ed Poor Talk 10:29, 9 September 2016 (EDT)

Rest In Peace

We all know she's going home. I don't mourn for her- rather, I celebrate her eternal reward for her good and her convictions, as I did for my grandmother, and as I will do for all true Christians. That is all. --Pious (talk) 02:11, 6 September 2016 (EDT)

'(born on August 15, 1924 - September 5, 2016)' should be changed. No need for the word 'born'. ZackV (talk) 18:51, 9 September 2016 (EDT)

Edit requests

This article is protected, so I cannot edit it. Would please someone make the following edits: In the second paragraph, there is a typo, as "back" should be "back". Also, it would be great if additional biographical details as well as the full list of books published (including The Conservative Case for Trump) would be added. --1990'sguy (talk) 22:51, 18 September 2016 (EDT)

Do I assume correctly that you mean "backk" should be "back"? That's an error I see in the last sentence of the first paragraph, anyway. --David B (TALK) 23:00, 18 September 2016 (EDT)
Oops! That was a typo on my part! Yes, you are correct. It reads "backk" (with the extra "k") and should be "back". Actually, I see just now that my computer's spellcheck automatically corrected it, and I didn't see it the first time. --1990'sguy (talk) 23:04, 18 September 2016 (EDT)
Unprotected page. Sorry I didn't notice this earlier.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 00:10, 18 October 2016 (EDT)


The article should be revised to point out that Phyllis and her husband (Fred) both joined the John Birch Society in the summer of 1959, after attending a JBS recruitment meeting in Chicago. Phyllis acknowledged her JBS membership in a letter she wrote in December 1959 to Verne Kaub of the American Council of Christian Laymen (ACCL). That letter appears in the ACCL archives at the Wisconsin Historical Society. In addition, in February 1960, Robert Welch described Phyllis in that month's JBS Bulletin as "a very loyal member of the John Birch Society".

In addition, the personal papers of JBS National Council member Thomas J. Anderson contain correspondence by JBS founder Robert Welch which explains why Phyllis decided to resign from the Birch Society in 1964. For some unknown reason, Phyllis was never willing to candidly acknowledge her JBS membership -- even when directly asked about it by her two biographers (Dr. Donald Critchlow and Carol Felsenthal).
