SEX, MOM and GOD: How the Bible's Strange Take on Sex Led to Crazy Politics--and How I Learned to Love Women (and Jesus) Anyway
"There is no one today who writes with as much humanity, insight and first-hand knowledge on the Christian experience as Frank Schaeffer, and as always he's at the top of his game in this fascinating and very enlightening book. With devastating insight he shows how the unholy alliance between the morally hypocritical religious right and the Republican Party has materially altered the landscape of American life."
Vincent Bugliosi (# 1 New York Times bestselling author of Helter Skelter)
"Schaeffer's latest blends a penetrating analysis of political extremism with a moving and at times hilarious account of his experience growing up in one of the Christian right's most influential families. With characteristic courage and sensitivity, Schaeffer brings the dark sexual obsessions of the movement into the light, describing the pathology behind its politics while exposing the damage it has done to designated enemies and naive followers alike. Few writers command Schaeffer's intimate understanding of right-wing radicalism, and even fewer are able to share their insight as entertainingly and with as much moral weight as he has in 'Sex, Mom, and God.'"
Max Blumenthal (journalist and author of: Republican Gomorrah)
"Frank Schaeffer has written a tour de force. Sex, Mom,
and God should be required reading for all Americans.
Sarah Palin, 'The Family,' Anne Hutchinson, adultery,
abortion, homophobia, Uganda, Ronald Reagan,
BB King, Billy Graham, Hugh Hefner –it is all here.
This is the kind of book I did not want to end and that I want everyone to read."
