Faith and Politics
How the "moral Values" Debate Divides America and How to Move Forward TogetherDownloadable Audiobook - 2006
As a former three-term Republican U.S. senator from Missouri and an ordained Episcopal priest, John Danforth has watched the changes in his party and the church with growing alarm. Now he wants to voice his concerns and call for change. Danforth speaks out clearly against the religious right's conflation of their political agenda with a religious agenda. He argues that no one should presume to embody God's truth. He castigates the religious right for their focus on wedge issues that drive people apart and that create "tests" for religious orthodoxy. In fact, Danforth looks closely at many of the major wedge issues of our day: abortion, stem cell research, gay marriage, the Schiavo case, and public displays of religion.
