Most of you are familiar with Pat Robertson, his Christian Broadcasting Network, and its long-running flagship program The 700 Club. I was not aware of this until today, but the former executive producer of this program has written a new book entitled The Gospel of Self: How Jesus Joined the GOP. I have not read this book, but it sounds like a good one. It is written by yet another fundie system insider (like Frank Schaeffer) who became disillusioned with Christian fundamentalism, conservative evangelicalism, and the so-called Religious Right—and decided to reveal all to the American public. I like books like this one because they usually shine a bright light on the hidden, behind-the-scenes evil that lurks within a Christian fundamentalist and conservative evangelical community that often wants its public image to look lily white and pure as the driven snow.
With regard to this book, I kindly ask you to watch the following brief video clip, read a little more about the new book, buy it, and give it a read:
