Moral Panic: Exposing the Religious Right's Agenda on Sexuality
In a searing analysis of the most recent political issues raised by the religious right in both the United States and Great Britain, including homosexuality and the churches, abortion, feminism and the collapse of the nuclear family, this controversial book exposes the hypocrisy, arrogance and self-interest that motivate hard-core Christian campaigners. It draws a clear distinction between faith and belief in God and the political agenda of the religious right, thus giving hope and encouragement to lesbians and gay men disillusioned with Christianity.
