Sub-title: How the Religious Right Fabricates Christian Values and Undermines Democracy.
A timely political book, HYPOCRISY, INC. exposes the religious right’s hypocrisy on two counts. First, evangelical “Christian” social and family values flatly contradict what Jesus taught and modeled in the Gospels, which evangelicals claim is literally God’s word. Second, the religious right couples these fabricated “Christian” values with conservative politics to form an ideology that is anti-democratic in concept and practice, while claiming to champion democracy.
This surprising and informative expose examines what the Gospels actually say about social and family values – including the role of women, patriarchy, the family, wealth, and much more - demonstrating how far they deviate from evangelical “Christian” values. The book then explores how evangelicals use their values to form a political, social, and economic ideology that exerts great power on American culture, politics, law, and policy in a way that threatens our freedom and form of government.
