Overview

How can more than two billion people claim the same religion but hold such far-flung values?

In the United States alone, there are about 250 million Christians, more than 75% of the population. Yet ideologically the nation is split right down the middle with each side absolutely certain that the other side is either not really Christian or has never really read the Bible.

No doubt many truly haven’t read much of that huge tome on which their religion is based. But even if they had, there are many passages in the Bible that both Christian Democrats and Republicans would probably just prefer didn’t exist. Those inconvenient little verses that don’t exactly seem to jive with whatever our political rhetoric might be. Verses that suggest it might be easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a liberal or conservative to go to heaven.

Using the King James Version’s Gospel of St. Matthew as an example, Robert Hopper selects favorite conservative and liberal passages, using italics for Democrats and underlines for Republicans, followed by brief, satirical, politically spun observations. The result is filled with plenty to please and peeve both diehard conservatives and liberals.
