Item description for Secular Sabotage: How Liberals Are Destroying Religion and Culture in America by William A. Donohue...
Overview Citing examples of recent incidents, such as a college student who was threatened with expulsion because she prayed on campus and a civil rights organization that protested a statue of Jesus found on the ocean floor, the President of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights exposes the groups behind an all-out attack on Christian traditions in the U.S. and encourages Americans to join forces to fight this insidious threat.
Publishers Description This assault is not happening from accident or whim. It is happening because disaffected liberals have deliberately set out to upend our Judeo-Christian traditions. Indeed, they are determined to tear down the traditional norms, values, and institutions that have been part of American society from its founding. The cultural debris that these saboteurs have created will take decades to clean up.
In feisty prose Donohue explores our nation where a college student is threatened with expulsion because she prayed on campus, a civil rights organization protests a statue of Jesus found on the ocean floor and a housewife sues a school district to stop the singing of Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer at a school choral production. These are just a few examples cited that demonstrate a culture descending into madness.
Donohue takes no prisoners as he digs out and exposes the groups behind this all-out attack on our Christian traditions. Among these are the radical atheists, the proponents of multiculturalism, the sexual libertines, the Hollywood elite with their not-so-hidden agenda and lawyers who collaborate for profit.

Secular Sabotage Feb 9, 2010
This book gives an uncensored account of the liberal attempts to kill religion in America. Read only if you have a strong stomach.
The Last Politically Correct Prejudice Dec 22, 2009
Bill Donohue paints "the last politically-correct prejudice in America" in sometimes shocking but bold strokes. "Sabotage" is an accurate description of what secularists have attempted to do to our culture. Somehow, we have departed so far from our Constitutional guarantees of Freedom OF Religion that it is often misinterpreted to read "Freedom FROM Religion"--which was never the intent of the Founding Fathers.
Mr. Donahue has alternately been described as "bombastic," "radical," and "outrageous" in his defense of Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular. But, if what he describes in his book is true, we SHOULD be outraged. And to make his point, he uses the technique of taking the vicious attacks against his church and faith and applying them to other minority groups. He does this not to impune any other group or religion, but rather to shock the reader into recognizing how insensitive and morally wrong the attacks are--regardless of whether they are levied against Catholics...or Jews...or Muslims...or Blacks. Prejudice and injustice are just as real no matter which minority is targeted. And to dismiss it simply because the group is not popular does not make the injustice any less so.
Mr. Donahue also portrays the insidiousness of these attacks. It brings to mind the image of the frog being placed into tepid water and them slowly boiled so that it doesn't notice the heat being turned up under him. Our culture has so long been innundated with the mantras of the secularists that to be a vocal, strong Christian--and Catholic Christian in particular--is now considered politically INcorrect. Kudos to Mr. Donahue for a job well done. May he continue to shock us into thinking for ourselves rather than follow the pied pipers of politic-speak.
The attack on Christianity Dec 9, 2009
Bill Donohue author of Secular Sabotage presents an excellent case. He clearly has spent much time researching his topic. He states that Liberals are destroying religion and culture in America. I will take it farther and state that Liberals are allowing Satan to use them to destroy Christianity in America. Donohue's focus is on the Catholic Church. However, all of Christianity is under attack. Donohue's presentation is flawless, his facts are correct. He describes in vivid detail the disrespect shown to religious figures. This is a book for adults, not children.

A spanking good read from an informed and eloquent theologian. Send this modest servant of god $$$
secular sabotage Nov 1, 2009
I was stunned by the explicit description in the first couple of chapters. I would not pass this book on to my grandchildren to read without close explanation of what happened previously.
