An encyclopedia entry for the "Traditional Values Coalition (TVC)" is presented. The extreme-right-wing evangelical group which was founded by Reverend Louis Sheldon opposes homosexuality, the teaching of evolution, and anti-Christian bigotry. It favors the teaching of creationism over evolution in public schools, opposes any sex-education curriculum that does not emphasize abstinence to the exclusion of information on birth control and disease prevention. TVC also endorses prayer in public schools.
