The Jesus Freaks were the hippie revival Christian movement and helped get Reagan into office.
There was a strong theme of Christianity among many hippies.
Where people go wrong is confusing political activists and radicals, yippies, and college kids on their way to high political office, PHDs, and law degrees and wealth and power, with “hippies”.
A lot of hippies used Jesus as cover for the same crap all the other hippies were doing. Very little was Christian about them. Reminds me of the idjits wearing Che shirts, hippies with a Jesus shirt doesn’t make them Christian.
