    A new book that is climbing the New York Times Bestseller List warns Americans of a dedicated minority of religious fanatics who are hijacking a great religion and actively working to destroy the United States Constitution and set up a theocracy in America, in which nonbelievers will be discriminated against or even summarily killed. Nor is their nefarious vision confined to the United States alone: this small but influential and wealthy band of religious zealots is also trying to turn events in the Middle East to their own advantage, so as to advance their religious agenda there also. Osama bin...

    Dr. James Luther Adams, my ethics professor at Harvard Divinity School, told his students that when we were his age—he was then close to 80—we would all be fighting the “Christian fascists.” The warning, given 25 years ago, came at the moment Pat Robertson and other radio and television evangelists began speaking about a new political religion that would direct its efforts toward taking control of all institutions, including mainstream denominations and the government. Its stated goal was to use the United States to create a global Christian empire. This call for fundamentalists and evangelicals to take political power was...

    Chris Hedges is on leave from the New York Times to write a book, but his anti-war rants keep on coming. Hedges first gained notoriety with his anti-war address at a commencement ceremony at Rockford College in Illinois, which resulted in his mike being unplugged and him being booed off the stage. Upon the capture of Saddam Hussein, Hedges has reappeared for an interview for the left-wing website TomPaine.com. The first question from senior editor Steven Rosenfeld regarding Saddam's capture delivers the far-left flavor of TomPaine.com (part of the Bill Moyers' family empire, run by son John). Note Rosenfeld's first...

    "It was a hard book to write. Parts of the book were very painful to write. If there was a fury, it was a fury at all the lies that are used to justify war, all the myths of war -- all of the things we're told about war that I had to find out the hard way and very painfully are not true. And if there's a fury at that, it's the mendacity of the entire enterprise." - C. Hedges This book is not about military war, as it pretends. It's about political war, and is the opening salvo...
