Editorial Reviews

Review

"With the passion and urgency the subject deserves, Crucifying America is an unabashed wake-up call to a nation that has allowed religious conservatives to hijack public policy." -David Niose, author of Nonbeliever Nation: The Rise of Secular Americans


"Crucifying America is an effective surgical strike on the runaway theocrats and their well-financed assault on the American political system.  Powerful stuff."  - Seth Andrews, author of Deconverted: A Journey From Religion to Reason

"In Crucifying America, there's no sacred cow nor bullshit CJ doesn't eviscerate with his keystrokes. He's the voice of the next generation of atheists. God help us." -Tina Dupuy Syndicated Columnist.

"In Crucifying America, Werleman makes a compelling case for how the "unholy alliance" between the Christian Right and corporate America has negatively impacted economic and social policy." -David G. McAfee, author of Mom, Dad, I'm an Atheist

Format: Kindle Edition
There is a battle raging in the United States. The fight over secular versus sectarian values. The Christian right is fighting to create the perfect theocracy while the secularists, well, they are busy removing ten commandment displays and suing cities over Christmas parades.

At least that is what author CJ Werleman sees and highlights in his new book Crucifying America: The Unholy Alliance Between the Christian Right and Wall Street, and it is hard to argue with him.

Politicians across the nation from Senator Wendy Davis standing up for women's rights, or Senator Elizabeth Warren standing up against the Wall Street cronies, are taking the fight we should all be fighting to the government. Yet atheists and secularists seem to get wrapped up in winning small battles that do not change the direction of the country. As the Christian right becomes a small and smaller percentage of the country, we continue to allow them to be the dominant faction.

Werleman's book is a call to action. Asking atheists what they plan to do to end the Christian's right attack on our rights, to healthcare, to public education, to minimum wage and their calling for the destruction of unions and even, a women's right to choose on abortion issues or same-sex marriage issues.

While we are liking memes on Facebook that state we support marriage equality, the Christian right are writing bills and raising money to end it wherever possible. While we are worried about the names of holiday parades, the Christian right is defunding public schools and funneling money into publicly funded yet privately owned charter schools, leaving millions of minority students behind.

The title of this review was my line of thought throughout the majority of Werleman's piece. Not at the author, but at how outrageously blind our country, nay our citizens, have become. A book that ties together the historical "need-to-know" moments, in the same vein as Howard Zinn, and the blunt presentation of the audacity of the right, similar to "American Fascists". If you aren't outraged, then you are ignoring the problem!

Werleman shows, through carefully documented statistics, quotes, and polls, how the US has let the evangelical right, content with embracing ignorance and creating distractions to deter from the real problems we NEED to face, thoroughly penetrate us all from behind. Sans lube.

I'm so glad I read this book, and others should take the time to read this. As Werleman states in the beginning, we're winning the wrong wars. So let's arm ourselves with his insight and fight back!

20 of 26 people found the following review helpful By Rex W. Huppke on October 30, 2013
Format: Paperback
CJ Werleman strikes out against the dangerous mix of politics and religion and deftly reveals where the GOP and the Christian Right are coming together to set a political agenda that favors the rich and the ideologically pure. With an acerbic - and often hysterical - wit, Werleman skewers many of the darker goings-on in American politics and, armed with brilliantly reported facts, makes it clear why this is an issue everyone should fear.

This is an important piece of work, written fearlessly and with great humor. It goes far beyond the standard talking points and blather of the right and left and gets at the inner workings of the influential people and groups who speak love-for-country as a means of hiding their own self interests. And Werleman pulls no punches in dealing with those who falsely claim a mantle of moral superiority while clinging to the purity of "good old days" that never were.

Read this, and encourage others to do the same. It may well help Americans recognize that, sadly, much of what's being said under the name of God in politics is little more than self-serving chicanery.

Format: Paperback
Werleman strikes again! This time he brandishes his pen and razor sharp wit against the United States of America's utterly corrupt political machine. Armed with knowledge and a sharp tongue, he exacts his completely justified and unrelenting judgement against a political system usurped by ultra religious nut bags. The book is laced with clever insults, entertaining analogies, and humor galore. However, as is the case in all of Werleman's books, there is an ever-present element of stern wisdom: He's right about what he says, he knows it, and he knows what America stands to lose if he can't convince you to get involved.

The book is written from a place of desperate concern by the Author for his adoptive country. Werleman loves America and this brilliant work is his attempt to rescue it from the salivating maw of the envisioned plutocratic theocracy of the pious. I for one think he did a hell of a job.

If you're an American, you want to read this book. If you're an agnostic or an atheist, you want to read this book. If you're an an American agnostic or atheist, you most definitely want to read this book. Nay, you HAVE to read this book.

In his classic blunt, tongue in cheek style, Werleman lays down worrying fact upon worrying fact. His arguments are exceedingly compelling and the odds are strongly in favour of you learning some things about corporate America and the Christian right that under other circumstances you'd think were impossible. Utterly outrageous, depressing and terrifying things.

My main two take-aways from the book are:
1. Secularists, atheists and agnostics are winning the wrong battles in America and it's a very, very bad thing.
2. If Secularists, atheists and agnostics don't get very good at politics in America very quickly, America and quite possibly the rest of the world are in for a very bad time.

The Christian Right are completely nuts and the ultra rich are exceedingly good at manipulating them.

Read the book. You nee to.
