Overview

This assault is not happening from accident or whim. It is happening because disaffected liberals have deliberately set out to upend our Judeo-Christian traditions. Indeed, they are determined to tear down the traditional norms, values, and institutions that have been part of American society from its founding. The cultural debris that these saboteurs have created will take decades to clean up.

In feisty prose Donohue explores our nation where a college student is threatened with expulsion because she prayed on campus, a civil rights organization protests a statue of Jesus found on the ocean floor and a housewife sues a school district to stop the singing of Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer at a school choral production. These are just a few examples cited that demonstrate a culture descending into madness.

Donohue takes no prisoners as he digs out and exposes the groups behind this all-out attack on our Christian traditions. Among these are the radical atheists, the proponents of multiculturalism, the sexual libertines, the Hollywood elite with their not-so-hidden agenda and lawyers who collaborate for profit.

    A MUST READ for Catholics and other Christians

    Bill Donohue does an excellent job exposing secularism in this book. I highly recommend it to all good, faithful Catholics and to all Christians of goodwill who are tired of the secularization of America. I had no idea that Catholic Christians were under attack in so many vicious ways. Secular Sabatoge tells it like it is, and motivates the reader to take a stand for what he or she believes in.

    A great book to read if your passionate about your country.

    This book has uncovered the leftist agenda that is tearing this country apart. Liberalism strips away the moral rules that keep our society from emploding and Bill Donohue seeks out those responsible and exposes them.

    Absolutely reprehensible

    This man, if you can even call him that, is a delusional, totalitarian, tyrannical, and hypocritical bigot who insists on promoting the ultimate incarnation of human imperfection. He is truly lost in the dark ages, refusing logic, reason, and humnaity.

    There is truth, and Donohue tells it!

    "Secular Sabotage" is lucid, hard-hitting, and meticulously documented. The culture wars indeed have played havoc with history. Even in academia, invective abounds but facts are in short supply, and wishful thinking (combined with large quantities of hubris and outright hatred) poses as scholarship. We surely are living in the Reign of Error, if not outright lunacy, when Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is deemed offensive but acts of public lewdness are protected by law. Donohue spares no one, including those who purport to hold a religious affiliation but can't seem to believe in God, as he examines the forces of secularism that work to undermine conservative faiths in American society. If this book doesn't get you thinking, you might want to check your pulse. Not just a book for Catholics but for anyone looking for a voice of reason in a society that seems to be oblivious to common sense.

    Every Catholic Should Read This

    This book is an eye opener! Mr. Donahue provides facts and names. Every Catholic should read this book and take a stand. It is time to become more vocal! Surely the minority will not like this book and argue it's credence, but Mr. Donahue speaks from experience, not opinion.
    This book will remain on my table since I intend to re-read it.

    intolerence of christians

    "secular sabotage" is a very remarkable book. the arthur documents how countless organizations such as the aclu and left wing liberal groups many athiests have been constantly trying to use every means possible to harrass christians and christian speech and activity and events in the community and the the nation. these groups stand for freedom of speech but whean it comes to christianity this bestseller shows exellent research that these groups dont defend free speech for faith or intolerence or free speech. great gift idea for a friend or family member

    Bill Donahue opposes neutrality in government towards religion

    Mr. Donahue takes the position that the secular are trying to destroy America. That is simply not true. Those who are secular just want the government to be neutral when it comes to religion, not to state there is a deity but also not to state there is not a deity. No secularist or even atheist wants a Pledge that says, "In no God we trust" but just onces the marketplace of ideas to debate that question. If a deity is true then it does not need governmental help and if not true then it is folly for the government to endorse a nonexistent being. Morality, ethics are a function of harm and that is what the secular want, for the government to ensure we as citizens dont' harm others. Now, if those who are secular are critical of religions that state that birth control should not be legal, gays should be imprisoned for "sodomy"; then yes secularists are opposed to such religious beliefs being enacted by the force of law. Mr. Donahue also takes the view that criticism of religion is analogous to racism, though religion is a belief system and not something that someone is born with, such as darker colored skin. Mr. Donahue wishes that everyone would treat his particular religious belief with the utmost respect but has no problem at all in attacking the harshest possible language the beliefs of those who are secular. I am all for an even debate but that is not want he wants. In fact, he is in general an embarrasment to more moderate Catholics which in his case is probably 98% of Catholics.

    Not bad for a rant, provocative. Research overkill apparent for legal purposes, lest anyone should become offended at being misquoted.

    The problem with this tome is that the author seems a bit filled with his own sense of self importance. I question if the Council of Bishops approves his tone, his view, his opinion. Do they place their imprimatur on his work. It certainly makes a point, but in some areas clearly goes far afield in connecting the dots. He blames agents of change for many of the ills, but fails to indict the hierarchy of various organizations that have failed to quell the problem because they have failed to address real concerns. This book also attempts to suggest that the Catholic abuse scandal is all over and done, so it should be forgotten. Sorry Bill, nobody is buying into that one. But make no mistake about it, there is an anti Catholic animus afoot in this country, anyone who still reads a newspaper can see it.
