    At no time in history has the United States had such a high percentage of theocratic members of Congress - those who expressly endorse religious bias in law. Just as ominously, especially for those who share the values and views of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, at no other time have religious fundamentalists effectively had veto power over one of the country's two major political parties. As Sean Faircloth argues in this deeply sobering yet highly engaging book, this has led to the crumbling of the country's most cherished founding principle - the wall of separation between church and state.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would highly recommend this book to someone else. Faircloth uses history and the current climate in the United States to promulgate the idea that a nation should not condone or reward partiality to religious institutions nor should it support or assist these entities. He explains why in an impassioned plea for secular Americans to become more aware of the problems associated with this overlap of government and religion, and to become more involved in trying to change existing norms and laws that give the religious right undeserved benefits at the expense of others, sometimes children, who suffer because of the religious right's status in our politics and culture. It is at times a poignant look at the suffering and damage caused by medical neglect by parents who believe in faith healing as opposed to science-based medicine, and at times a stirring summons to the reader to invlove themselves personally in the prevention of these kinds of abhorent atrocities, by taking an active role in achieving the vision of a secular America. It is for liberals and conservatives, and especially for any purveyor of United States history who believes in the consititutional rights of all Americans.
