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

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!

Crucifying America: The Unholy Alliance between the Christian Right and Wall Street by CJ Werleman

"Crucifying America" is an appeal to free thinkers to mobilize against the most dangerous threat to America, the Christian Right. This well-paced book examines how the alliance between the Christian Right and corporations are winning in terms of imposing their will and agenda on practically every key political issue. Columnist and author, CJ Werleman is fast becoming a secularist favorite. His irreverent humor combined with astute observations provides free thinkers clarity on state of current political events. This provocative 254-page book includes the following fifteen chapters: 1. Elections Have Consequences, 2. Elections For Sale, 3. Rigging the Game (Part 1), 4. Fixing the Game (Part 2), 5. The Lords of the Game, 6. The American Taliban (Getting Voters into the Game), 7. War on the Poor (Part 1), 8. War on the Poor (Part 2), 9. War on the Middle Class, 10. The War on Women, 11. The War on Public Education, 12. They Want You Dumb, 13. Israel and the Road to Armageddon, 14. The Echo Chamber, and 15. The Police Surveillance State.

Positives:
1. Engaging, provocative and well-written book.
2. Fascinating topic in the hands of a keen observer who writes with passion.
3. This book has excellent flow. It covers many political topics of interest and it does so without overstaying its welcome.
4. The sins of Southern Politics: "Seven Deadly Sins of Southern Politics: demagogic dishonesty, religious fanaticism, willful obstructionism, disregard for own self-interest, corporate supplication, disproportionate influence, and military adventurism."

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.
