Publishers Description
"I join the ranks of those who are angry, because I have watched as the faith I love has been taken over by fundamentalists who claim to speak for Jesus but whose actions are anything but Christian."
--Robin Meyers, from his "Speech Heard Round the World"

Millions of Americans are outraged at the Bush administration's domestic and foreign policies and even angrier that the nation's religious conservatives have touted these policies as representative of moral values. "Why the Christian Right Is Wrong" is a rousing manifesto that will ignite the collective conscience of all whose faith and values have been misrepresented by the Christian Right.

Praise for "Why the Christian Right Is Wrong"

"In the pulpit, Robin Meyers is the new generation's Harry Emerson Fosdick, George Buttrick, and Martin Luther King. In these pages, you will find a stirring message for our times, from a man who believes that God's love is universal, that the great Jewish prophets are as relevant now as in ancient times, and that the Jesus who drove the money changers from the Temple may yet inspire us to embrace justice and compassion as the soul of democracy. This is not a book for narrow sectarian minds; read it, and you will want to change the world."
--Bill Moyers

"In this book, a powerful and authentic religious voice from America's heartland holds up a mirror to the Bush administration and its religious allies. The result is a vision of Orwellian proportions in which values are inverted and violence, hatred, and bigotry are blessed by one known as 'The Prince of Peace, ' who called us to love our enemies. If you treasure this country and tremble over its present direction, this book is a must-read "
--John Shelby Spong author, "The Sins of Scripture: Exposing the Bible's Texts of Hate to Reveal the God of Love"

"This is a timely warning and a clarion call to the church to recover the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to a great nation to resist the encroachment of the Christian Right and of Christian fascism. Many of us in other parts of the world are praying fervently that these calls will be heeded."
--Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Reviews - What do customers think about Why the Christian Right Is Wrong: A Minister's Manifesto for Taking Back Your Faith, Your Flag, Your Future?

Another Liberal Assault  Mar 23, 2008
At last, a liberal excretion that actually made it to this site's list of "viable" books. Almost unheard of...

If this learned treatise is endorsed by Bill Moyers, I know it has to be so far off the left flank that it would be purposeless to get it. After all, is he not an ultra-Leftist icon? Do not his blatantly illegal conflicting business relationships with PBS constitute adequate reason for his dismissal from any post requiring the same level of judgmement?

 
a must read for anyone who doesn't want a "W" repeat  Jan 4, 2008
This book, in no uncertain terms, tells it like it is about the GOP and the Christian "Right". Mr Meyers describes, in detail, how the mixing of politics and religion has led to many of the problems we have today, including "W". It is a must read for anyone who doesn't want another "W" like leader in 08. They have distorted the Christian message from "What would Jesus do?" to "Who would Jesus bomb" and offers a message of acceptance and inclusion of all, even non-believers", to make a better world. Offers many valuable points (about the environment, the poor, health care, and others, who the so called "Christian" people have twisted [in an "unholy" alliance with the GOP] which has nothing to do with the messages of the Gospels). Of course, the holier than thou will think it's "blasphemy", but these are the same people who talk out of both sides of their mouths. Judge for yourself.
 
why the christian right is wrong  Oct 18, 2007
This is one of the most inspiring books to correct the misconception of a "Christian" administration vs the true philosophy of Jesus. In simple, English Dr Meyers describes the immoralities of this government and what we should do as real Christians to change our society/church. The weakness of the opposition party is also recognized and we are called upon as individuals to work diligently to change all phases of life to what the Saviour taught.
 
excellent discussion of the essence of Christianity  Sep 14, 2007
Mr meyers provides us with a comprehensive and well-thought-out discussion of the Spiritual and specifically Christian aspects of recent governmental policy decisions. His explanations of the essential falacies, hypocrisies and internal contradictions of the knee-jerk right-wing positions on hot-button issues remind us that Christians are, as a group, neither unintelligent nor are they hateful. In Mr. Meyers theses we are reminded that Christ has called us to be thoughtful in our questioning of authority especially when that authority claims to be acting on God's behalf and yet evidences in its actions that its true guidance may be coming from some other voice. He exposes the distictly un-Christian attitudes of hatefulness, exploitation, exclusiveness, social darwinism and vengefulness that so pervade the behaviors of our present administration and its supporters among those who claim to be disciples of Christ. This is a must read for anyone who, like myself, find themselves surrounded by a church famly who seem to be missing the point in favor of waving the flag. Mr. Meyers should be lauded for his reaffirmation that it is possible even appropriate to be a Christian liberal and that Big Imperialism has not stollen our faith, only many of our faithful. He is right also in calling us to go out and get tham back.
 
Why Meyers does not have a clue  Jul 10, 2007
I have never read a book that blatantly twists Scripture. Meyers suggests that Paul is a homosexual, among a host of other errors. Has this guy ever picked up a Bible? If you support gay-affirming churches, moral relativism , and the suggestion that the Bible's rules do not really apply to life today, well this is your book. If you believe God left an infallible Word for His people, steer clear of this nonsense. I read 3/4th's of it and will be returning it tomorrow. I would be ashamed to have this blasphemy on my book shelf.
