Who Is Paul M. Weyrich?Paul M. Weyrich, a major influence in Washington and at Christendom College, is one of the leading creators of vox populi furor over such gnostic "single issues" as "free trade," "family values," and "abortion," using Madison Avenue techniques to advance his "social conservative" agenda.
Weyrich is a convert from Roman Catholicism to the Melkite Greek Church (Uniate Church in Communion with Rome), and is a Proto-Deacon of that confession in the Diocese of Arlington. He often speaks at Christendom College.
A former Congressional aide, Weyrich in 1973 teamed with Edwin Feulner and, bankrolled by Joseph Coors, founded the Heritage Foundationa peculiar mélange of the British Fabian Society, London's International Institute for Strategic Studies, and, most importantly, the "free trade" and "drug legalization" institute known as the Mont Pelerin Society, which made Democratic Party Presidential pre-candidate Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. a major target.
Leaving Feulner in charge of Heritage, Weyrich went on to launch a host of "single issue" institutions:
Weyrich, in February 1998, was appointed to a five-year term on the Amtrak Reform Council. In 1998 he became its vice-chairman; in its final report, he suggested the same disastrous "privatization" policy that has famously ruined the national rail system of Margaret Thatcher's and Tony Blair's Britain.Scott Thompson
