Holy Terror: Lies The Christian Right Tells Us To Deny Gay Equality
The best-selling author of Stranger at the Gate returns with an insider's exposé of the origins of the Christian fundamentalist movement and how its virulent anti-gay agenda has led to the rise of the Tea Party movement, among other forms of recent right wing extremism.
In Holy Terror, the Rev. Dr. Mel White argues that the true goals of today's fundamentalists are to break down the wall that separates church and state, superimpose their "moral values" on the US Constitution, replace democracy with theocratic rule, and ultimately create a new "Christian America" in their image. They believe this is a Christian nation that must be returned forcibly to its Christian roots.
Since the fall of "godless Communism," homosexuality and abortion have become the primary targets through which fundamentalists have created fear, raised money, and mobilized recruits. Originally published in hardcover as Religion Gone Bad, Holy Terror documents the thirty-year war that fundamentalist Christians have waged against gays and lesbians and offers dramatic, well-documented evidence that fundamentalist leaders are waging nothing less than a "holy war" against sexual minorities.
