The Religio-Industrial Complex vs. The Innovators
The author of Attack of the Theocrats: How the Religious Right Harms Us All and What We Can Do About It, describes how your tax money subsidizes fundamentalists then issues a call to action.
While much of the public debate in the United States over church-state issues has focused on the construction of nativity scenes in town squares and the addition of “under God” to the Pledge, Faircloth, a former politician and current executive director of the Secular Coalition for America, moves beyond the symbolism to explore the many ways federal and state legal codes privilege religion in law.
He demonstrates in vivid detail how religious bias in law harms all Americans-financially, militarily, physically, socially, and educationally – and directs special attention to the outlandish words, views, and policy proposals of the most theocratic politicians, a group he labels the Fundamentalist Fifty.
