The Sinner's Guide to the Evangelical Right

"An awesome book"
Wonkette


"Like all great satire, the book is cerebral, irreverent and hilarious, while also edifying"
Publisher's Weekly


"This book is hilarious... [Lanham] didn't skimp on his research. The book provides a telling overview of the religious right's leadership, the beliefs they espouse, and just how incredibly absurd and hypocritical they are."
The Campaign to Defend the Constitution


Editor's Pick: "From the author of The Hipster Handbook comes this irreverent navigation of all things Evangelical. Learn enough slang to fit in at a church picnic or why SpongeBob SquarePants is an agent of the Devil"
Chicago Sun-Times


"This guy has written quite a funny book."
Alan Colmes, Fox News


"A funny book with some funny cartoons on everyone from Rick Warren as the evangelical Jimmy Buffett to a guide for Christian haircuts that is hilarious... I was chuckling until I saw that I am the postscript"
Mark Driscoll, pastor of the
largest megachurch
in Washington State


"Every good little liberal will have this book on order as a stocking stuffer come Jesus' birthday."
Time Out


"A handbook for coping with bible thumpers.... When considering the power and influence evangelical Christians wield in this country, you have to laugh to keep from crying. Robert Lanham... understands this well and offers much needed, totally biased comic relief."
Village Voice


"Not only is this an important
book, it's a funny book."
Marc Maron, Air America Radio

"Author Robert Lanham is an observer... but with his latest, The Sinner's Guide to the Evangelical Right, Lanham's keen eye has hit perhaps his most entertaining target."
Metro Paper


"It’s hard to remember a more pointed and scathing attack… Lanham launches a focused, sustained barrage on the Pat Robertsons and James Dobsons of the world… He’s done his homework. The book is thoroughly researched and packed with quotes and analysis of the famous and not-so-famous leaders of the evangelical right… the research is truly impressive. "
The Reader


"An utterly biased, humorous one-stop guide to the major evangelical players."
Details


"Check out Robert Lanham's (author of the fabled Hipster Handbook and former Bible Belt resident) Sinner's Guide to the Evangelical Right. It's funny because it's true."
Elizabeth Spiers,
founding Editor of Gawker


"Like the Daily Show or The Colbert Report, it's humor reveals the basic truth. Which is to say that the "sinners" of the world may be closer to Jesus and the divine than those who use God's name for personal enrichment, power building, and political gain."
Buzzflash


"The book does for religion what Jon Stewart does for politics."
CanWest News Service


"Informative, laugh-out-loud funny and horrifying at times, check out this snide, leftie-geared guide to the major evangelical players... Robert Lanham has a writing style that resembles... McSweeney's, and the irony-stacked humor of TV programs such as "The Daily Show"
Style Weekly, Richmond VA


"Hilarious... go out and buy this book now."
Sam Seder, The Majority Report


"This book should lay at the lifeless feet of your corpse as a silent, yet powerful and all encompassing explanation as to why you took your own life."
David Cross, Arrested Development

falwellfuneral.jpg

From HuffPost

Some Republican figures were expected for the funeral, but none of the party's presidential candidates said they could attend. The White House was sending a midlevel aide. Among the Virginia Republican leaders attending was Attorney General Bob McDonnell.

Falwell, 73, died a week ago after collapsing in his office at Liberty University. His physician said Falwell had a heart condition and presumably died of a heart rhythm abnormality. READ IT ALL

pic-meet-char-tinkywinky.jpg

• From an article called Parents Alert: Tinky Winky Comes Out of the Closet: "He is purple - the gay-pride colour; and his antenna is shaped like a triangle - the gay-pride symbol."

• If you're not a born-again Christian, you're a failure as a human being.

• "I think [Desmond Tutu]'s a phony, period, as far as representing the black people of South Africa."

• AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals.

On September 11: The ACLU's got to take a lot of blame for this... I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way—all of them who have tried to secularize America—I point the finger in their face and say, "You helped this happen."

• I hope I live to see the day when, as in the early days of our country, we won't have any public schools. The churches will have taken them over again and Christians will be running them. What a happy day that will be!

• It appears that America's anti-Biblical feminist movement is at last dying, thank God, and is possibly being replaced by a Christ-centered men's movement which may become the foundation for a desperately needed national spiritual awakening.

• There is no separation of church and state. Modern US Supreme Courts have raped the Constitution and raped the Christian faith and raped the churches by misinterpreting what the Founders had in mind in the First Amendment to the Constitution.

• The Jews are returning to their land of unbelief. They are spiritually blind and desperately in need of their Messiah and Savior.

• Grown men should not be having sex with prostitutes unless they are married to them.

• Christians, like slaves and soldiers, ask no questions.

• Textbooks are Soviet propaganda.

• The whole (global warming) thing is created to destroy America's free enterprise system and our economic stability.

• I do not believe the homosexual community deserves minority status. One's misbehavior does not qualify him or her for minority status. Blacks, Hispanics, women, etc., are God-ordained minorities who do indeed deserve minority status.

And of course, this doosy:

cross.gif  Falwell found unconscious, in 'gravely serious' condition

newt1.falwell.gi.jpg

From CNN

The Rev. Jerry Falwell was hospitalized in "gravely serious" condition after being found unconscious in his office Tuesday, a Liberty University executive said.

Ron Godwin, the executive vice president of Falwell's Liberty University, said Falwell was found unresponsive around 10:45 a.m. and taken to Lynchburg General Hospital. Godwin said he was not sure what caused the collapse, but "he has a history of heart challenges."

"I had breakfast with him, and he was fine at breakfast," Godwin said. "He went to his office, I went to mine and they found him unresponsive."

Godwin said Falwell was receiving emergency care. A hospital spokeswoman said she had "no information to release at this time" on Falwell

Falwell, a television evangelist who founded the Moral Majority, became the face of the religious right in the 1980s. He later founded the conservative Liberty University and serves as its president.

Falwell survived two serious health scares in early 2005. He was hospitalized for two weeks with what was described as a viral infection, then hospitalized again a few weeks later after going into respiratory arrest.

cross.gif Falwell Says Hillary Would Mobilize The GOP Base More Than "Lucifer"

falhil.jpg
(art from our book, The Sinner's Guide to the Evangelical Right)

Despite the idiocy of his statement (and its implications that Hilary is evil), we kind of agree with him for once. LA Times

Nothing will motivate conservative evangelical Christians to vote Republican in the 2008 presidential election more than a Democratic nominee named Hillary Rodham Clinton -- not even a run by the devil himself.

That was the sentiment expressed by the Rev. Jerry Falwell, the longtime evangelical icon and founder of the once-powerful Moral Majority, during private remarks Friday to church pastors and activists as part of the Values Voter Summit hosted this weekend by the country's leading Christian conservatives.

A recording of Falwell's comments was obtained by The Times, and his remarks were confirmed by eyewitnesses.

"I certainly hope that Hillary is the candidate," Falwell said, according to the recording. "She has $300 million so far. But I hope she's the candidate. Because nothing will energize my [constituency] like Hillary Clinton."

Cheers and laughter filled the room as Falwell continued: "If Lucifer ran, he wouldn't."

At that moment in the recording, Falwell's voice is drowned out by hoots of approval. But two in attendance, including a Falwell staff member, confirmed that Falwell said that even Lucifer, the fallen angel synonymous with Satan in Christian theology, would not mobilize his followers as much as the New York senator and former first lady would.

"He was calling Hillary Clinton a demonic figure and openly arguing that God is a Republican," said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of the advocacy group Americans United for Separation of Church and State. "It's hard to know whether people thought he was joking or serious, but once you start using religious imagery and invoking a politician in this way, it's not funny. A lot of people who listen to him do think that she's a dark force of evil in America." READ IT ALL

cross.gif Christian Coalition Promoting Anti-Muslim Hate Film

PatRobertsonimage.jpg

Pat Robertson's Christian Coalition currently has an advertisement for the film "What the West Needs to Know" on its home page. Here's how the film is described on its promotional website:

"Islam is a violent, expansionary ideology that seeks the destruction or subjugation of other faiths, cultures, and systems of government... We learn that the example of Muhammad is one of a violent warlord who killed numerous people. The Koran -- the verbatim words of Allah -- prescribes violence against non-Muslims and Muhammad is the perfect example of the Koran in action....

The Crusades were largely a belated response on the part of Christian Europe to rescue Christians in the Holy Land suffering under Muslim oppression. The Muslim world today [is]... responsible for the vast majority of conflicts around the world...

A great problem with Western efforts to understand Islam is due to the Islamic principle of 'religious deception', which enjoins Muslims to deceive non-Muslims in order to advance the cause of Islam. Muslim groups today in the West employ deception and omission to give the impression that 'Islam is a religion of peace', an utter fiction...

Muslims in Western nations are called to subvert the secular regimes in which they now live in accordance with Allah's command. Due to political correctness and general government and media irresponsibility, the danger posed by observant Muslims in the West remains largely unappreciated.
