The problem that I had with the book was that the author was trying to say that the Christian Right are fascists. I am very critical of the Christian Right, but to say that they are Nazis is just totally out of line. I had the feeling all through her book that she studied fascism a lot, for instance, in college. A lot of people have a tendency to label whatever they don't like as "fascist". I think that is kind of dangerous, because we do need to differentiate things that we consdider wrong and primitive with real fascism.
Also, I do think that evangelical Christianity is not a monolith. I think that one problem that the people who claim that the "Christian Right" is trying to build a "theocracy", is that, if you really look closely at it, there is no unity to it. Sure, there are people like Dobson and "Focus on the Family", but the very nature of modern evangelical Christianity is that it is not a unified, traditional church. It consists of millions of individuals. They do not all believe the same thing (35 % of them voted for John Kerry in 2004, for instance). And yet, the author claims that they all basically believe the same thing. If all evangelicals are fascists, then those 35 % that voted for Kerry are also fasicsts ??
