—Robin Meyers, from his "Speech Heard Round the World"
Millions of Americans are outraged at the Bush administration'sdomestic and foreign policies and even angrier that the nation'sreligious conservatives have touted these policies asrepresentative of moral values. Why the Christian Right IsWrong is a rousing manifesto that will ignite the collectiveconscience of all whose faith and values have been misrepresentedby the Christian Right.
Praise for Why the Christian Right Is Wrong:
"In the pulpit, Robin Meyers is the new generation's HarryEmerson Fosdick, George Buttrick, and Martin Luther King. In thesepages, you will find a stirring message for our times, from a manwho believes that God's love is universal, that the great Jewishprophets are as relevant now as in ancient times, and that theJesus who drove the money changers from the Temple may yet inspireus to embrace justice and compassion as the soul of democracy. Thisis not a book for narrow sectarian minds; read it, and you willwant to change the world."
"In this book, a powerful and authentic religious voice fromAmerica's heartland holds up a mirror to the Bush administrationand its religious allies. The result is a vision of Orwellianproportions in which values are inverted and violence, hatred, andbigotry are blessed by one known as 'The Prince of Peace,' whocalled us to love our enemies. If you treasure this country andtremble over its present direction, this book is amust-read!"
—John Shelby Spong author, The Sins of Scripture: Exposingthe Bible's Texts of Hate to Reveal the God of Love
"This is a timely warning and a clarion call to the church torecover the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to a great nation to resistthe encroachment of the Christian Right and of Christian fascism.Many of us in other parts of the world are praying fervently thatthese calls will be heeded."
—Archbishop Desmond Tutu
