Book Description

You feel frustrated, even angry, at the impotence of our political system today.  It seems broken, but the truth is that the Religious Right has infiltrated the political system and are creating this stalemate with very little regard for anything outside their agenda.  They have a specific plan for this nation, and it will not be a democracy when all is said and done.

This work is a timely exposé on the Religious Right that gives insight into the network's blueprint for America. From Christian Reconstructionists, Dominionists, Quiverfull, Seven Mountains Mandate, to the war on women, and attacks on public schools.  Find out who the leaders of the movement are and their tactics.

This exposé uncovers a deceptive movement to take over the government, courts, education system, media outlets, and American culture with stealth - and it's true, not fiction. How is this possible?  This book explains and documents a stealthy hijacking of the government, courts, schools, even our history, and popular culture.  Find out in its pages why they believe they are mandated to have dominion over every aspect of life in the United States. It reveals how their vision for America is not a democracy at all. 

The book is written by an insider who left the Religious Right fold and now shares why they believe they are mandated to have dominion over every aspect of life in the United States. How their vision for America is not a democracy at all. A must read.

Although the book is not intended for academics, it is well researched with current events included and explained. The book includes interviews, and a bibliography. The presentation is organized and systematic while in plain English. While there are books on the market that focus on an aspect of the movement, this one outlines the network and their overall strategy, tactics, and steps each person can take to make a difference.  It goes beyond the disturbing news and and shares how to get involved and make a difference in your community to protect your rights and preserve democracy. Never dull and answers all your questions.  It shares how to get involved and make a difference in your community to protect your rights and preserve democracy.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Every freedom loving American should read this book. A.F. Alexander lays out the facts as only an insider could, and they are startling. Christian Dominionism represents a clear and present danger to our democracy, and this book tells you what each of us can do to protect the Liberty we all hold so dear."  Jason Childs, founder of the Center for Progress in Alabama, Liberty University graduate, and former evangelical Baptist pastor.

"There is a dangerous threat brewing, and many are afraid to speak out against it. As a former member of the Religious Right, A.F. Alexander offers an insider's explanation of why the movement formed, how it joined with the Republican Party, how its members view the world, and what they want for America... this book serves as an honest and frightening look into the movement." 4 Stars Sacramento/San Francisco Book Reviews

"A theocracy is a nation where religion controls the government. 'Religious Right: The Greatest Threat to Democracy' is a treatise from a former member [who] shares...what she fears may be America's downfall. 'Religious Right' is worth considering for those who want to better understand the Christian Right's ideals for the American nation."  Midwest Book Review: Small Press Watch, June 2012.

"It is a good basic introduction to understanding the drives of the fundamentalist Christian right and how they mesh into present day American politics...It will scare the pants off you - as it should!" Nulla/LibraryThing 4 stars

About the Author

A.F. Alexander was one of those far right conservative Christians. A.F. Alexander was born and raised in Colorado. She witnessed first hand the relocation of Focus on the Family, and its impact on the city. She graduated from a church sponsored Bible Institute, worked as a part time church secretary in her spare time, was a Sunday School teacher for approximately eight years, and wrote for a monthly church publication. She left the movement, after a few decades of ardent involvement, over the position that women should stay with abusive husbands.

Four years, and over sixty reference books later (we aren't even touching on the number of articles), she had systematically presented the Religious Right agenda. "There are a couple of major themes and players that clearly stood out as I researched and pieced their agenda together.  One theme that I found very disturbing was the intentional move towards a government and culture solely established upon an extremist view of the Bible, essentially a theocracy, and a deliberate move away from any consent of the governed. I felt that deserved to be spotlighted and brought to every citizen's attention."


She holds a BSBA degree, as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Sacred Theology. She has worked in Fortune 500 companies her entire adult life. This was the book that had to be written and would not be quieted.

Few people realize how pervasive the Religious Right's assault on Democracy really is. You have to understand that there are millions of radical true believers, legions of a very well-oiled machine, unthinkingly working to disassemble our Democracy in exchange for Biblical Law. This has been going on in all corners of our society, systematically for some time. Now there is a blatant disregard for the wall between church and state, as it has been almost completely knocked down by the wrecking ball of dogma. This book carefully exposes each aspect of that machine for the reader to be aware of, resist, and work to correct. Solutions and reasons for hope are also very carefully laid out in conclusion. Our first impression to this title is that this problem is surely a fringe thing and an Alarmist response. The truth is that this most definitely is NOT alarmist, and this book is an absolute must read to understand the details of why, how, and when we have been invaded by this radical Dominionist belief system.

4.0 out of 5 stars Be informed about the Religous Right's agenda May 7, 2012
By klm56
Format:Paperback
This is an important and timely book because once you read it you will begin to notice even more, especially in this election year, how conservative politicians are aligning themselves with the Religious Right. You will be more sensitized to comments regarding separation between church and state, and how the religious community interprets what the intent of separation is really about - in their mind it is a one-way street (governent should stay out of church matters, but churches can get involved in politics as much as they want). One of the bedrock principles of our country is that every person is free to pursue his/her religious beliefs (all belief systems) without fear of interference from their government. The Religious Right is very organized and effective at assaulting this principle. Those of us who wish to hold onto our freedoms must take this assault seriously and get involved to protect it. If your first reaction is to think this book is "alarmist"; please think again and examine the facts presented. Speak up!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to the subject October 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a comprehensive and very reasonably priced introduction to this topic. Many other works are referred to and quoted from, so readers who want to look into the subject more deeply will find plenty of references to explore. Unfortunately, the book suffers badly from poor proof reading/editing - it is riddled with grammatical and punctuation errors. However, despite these errors, the book is clearly structured and not badly written, so it is a good place to start.

How will the religious right impose it's economic and social agenda on America? This book explains in excrutiating detail how the "Christan" fundamentalist/dominionist "Seven Mountain Mandate" [reflected in the mission of the American Legislative Exchange Council (alecexposed.org)] is infecting public policy across the nation, thanks to the election of "Christian" fundamentalists to public office across the country as well as at the federal level.

I appreciate the fact that beyond the doom and gloom, Alexander includes suggestions/ideas for positive action. In order to understand the insaniti-TEA rife within contemporary politics, this is one piece of the puzzle we cannot do without. This book provides us with a thorough account of the mechanations behind the sceens working to replace our constitutional principles with biblical law, written from the perspective of a former insider who mustered the courage to walk away and sound the alarm.

this book connects the dots of the 7 mountain mandate agenda of the far right religious extremists. This cult is gaining power and influence to hasten the rapture, at the expense of liberty.

Religious Right: The Greatest Threat to Democracy by A.F. Alexander

"Religious Right: The Greatest Threat to Democracy" is an excellent expose of the Religious Right's agenda to replace Democracy for Theocracy. This is a very ambitious book that delves into the multi-pronged agenda of the Religious Right; it meticulously covers their tactics, the main players behind this ominous movement and provides readers with tools on how to protect our democracy. A.F. Alexander has crafted a well-rounded representation of why this movement believes they must take dominion over every aspect of our lives. This insightful 394-page book is divided into the following six sections: The Critical Issue, 2. Who are They & How We Got Them, 3. The Resulting Worldview, 4. The War is On, 5. The Family Mountain, and 6. The Past and the Future.

Positives:
1. A comprehensive and accessible book on the greatest threat to democracy, the Religious Right.
2. A fascinating topic in the hands of a person who witnessed firsthand the oppressive influence of the Religious Right on her community and bravely exposes their ubiquitous tactics.
3. So much substantive material covered in one book. A great Kindle value!
4. Excellent format. Each chapter begins with a "What to Expect From this Chapter" and ends with a "Take With You From This Chapter".
5. A well cited book! Each work is cited within the text.
6. Does a wonderful job of defining terms and hammers home her main points with conviction.
7. An excellent defense of the Separation of Church and State. Really exposes the abuses to the First Amendment with a luxury of examples.
8. Great lessons in history throughout the book. "One will do well in these matters to heed the warning of the `Father of the U.S.
