So finishing up with Kingdom Coming, The Rise of Christian Nationalism, by Michelle Goldberg 2006

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01F9QD7JK/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i4

She gets into some of the things which really infuriated me about these abstinence advocates.

First, around 1990 there was this contraceptive sponge which was going through public testing.  Billed as being the most ideal of contraceptives ever invented.

And then more recently, a vaccine for the HPV viruses.

Well the Christian Right and the Abstinence Advocates fought hard against these, and not because they might be ineffective or have side effects, they fight against them precisely because they might work exactly as intended.

So here I want to record some of Goldberg's more interesting looking references:

so finishing up with Michelle Goldberg's Kingdom Coming.

She is saying what I have been trying to say about the Christian Right for decades, only she has done the hard research to back it up.

So let me try and record her a few of her remaining references:

Francis Schaeffer, "A Christian Manifesto" 1981

Roger Griffin, "The Nature of Fascism" 2003

Fritz Stern, The Politics of Cultural Despair: A Study In The Rise Of The Germanic Ideology" 1989

David Frum, "The Right Man" 2003

Gary Wills, "Under God: Religion and American Politics" 1990

Marvin Olasky, crazy nut case.

Rick Santorum, nut case, Catholic, US Senator from PA

Karen Armstrong, "The Battle for God: A History of Fundamentalism" 2001

Robert O. Paxton, "Anatomy of Fascism" 2005

page 210 "It makes no sense to fight religious authoritarianims abroad wile letting it take over at home?"

page 209, Muslim Fundamentalist woman says at conference, "... American culture and communism are *the same*, because both are colonialist forces that assult traditional norms."

page 204, Fenton Communications, handles public relations for MoveOn, put together Campaign to Defend the Constitution, grassroots group devoted to raising awareness about the Religious Right.

MoveOn is the closest thing liberals have to the Christian Coalition.

page 201 "It's unfair to condemn anyone for seeking redress from the Supreme Court -- African-Americans, gay people, and others are entirely justified in not wanting to put their civil rights up for popular vote."

"Ever since Brown v. Board, the left has turned to the Supreme Court to defend civil liberties in the face of hostile majorities."

page 199, she counts the most effective groups, ACLU, People for the American Way, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and Southern Poverty Law Center.   ( all have at times received money from me.  )

Redeemer Presbyterian Church, breakaway denomination, having Dr. James Kennedy's Coral Ridge Ministries, part of the far right.

Presbyterian Church of America, another far right breakaway.

Another is Evangelical Preybeterian Church.

And then in recent years, Evangelical Covenant Order of Presbyterians.

All breaking away from the sensible Presbyterian Church U.S.A.

Christian Reconstructionism, a crazy and frightening doctrine.

Lenin's famous essay, "Socialism and Religion"

World Harvest Church, far right mega church, Columbus Ohio, Rod Parsley Pastor.
