Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For decades, Press argues, conservatives have defined religion so narrowly that Democrats and liberals have been pushed outside the fold. According to their narrow gospel, God put George W. Bush in the White House to deal with gays, guns, and abortion—and those who dont agree are on the sure road to hell. How the Republicans Stole Religion is Presss fervent call for the left to reclaim religion and return it to its basic principles of social justice, charity, and tolerance.

It figures a Tobey Keith fan would not like the TRUTH! I mean Bill has done a service to this country I feel, and it's about time that someone had the courage and smarts to write a book like (Bill) has! I plan to share this book with not only my liberal friends, but my lost conseritive friends too! Jesus gave us free will, but it seems the Republicans just can't deal with that, it interferes with their views.... Oh and as far as the comment of anyone liking this being stupid????? You suppourt Bush! Enough said!!!!

Bill Press is full of BS! He picks and chooses scriptures himself! He defends the democrats morals??? (they don't have any!) Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, you can't use the word moral in the same sentence as those two. yeah, it's wrong to kill a killer, or baby rapist, but you can abort all the fetuses you want because it's a woman's right to choose. Those who believe in abortion have never had one. It's bad enough that one would require an abortion because of a rape or a life threatening disease that would kill mother and baby,But the majority of abortions are performed for nothing more than birth control. (In my experiences with friends, etc.) It's nice that he expresses his opinion, but it is just that, his opinion. He isn't 100 % correct either, although he thinks he is, and everyone else who disagrees with him is stupid!
