Christian Fundamentalists made up 40 percent of George W. Bush's electorate in 2004, the result of an intense mobilization that brought out at least 3.5 million new conservative evangelical voters. And it's no wonder the Christian right turned out for Bush with such enthusiasm. As Esther Kaplan shows in this richly detailed investigation, President Bush devoted much of his first term to cultivating their support. Family planning and AIDS organizations saw their funds cut, while church groups received millions of dollars to promote sexual abstinence and marriage. Bush appointed a Christian right dream team to the federal courts dedicated to tearing down what one such judge calls the "so-called separation between church and state." Bush officials slipped creationist literature into our national parks, granted human rights to embryos, and declared that Bush was sent by God. Even the president's foreign policy was shaped by religious zeal. A prescient study of the Christian right's growing political clout, With God on Their Side is essential reading for anyone concerned about America's future.
