Chris Hedges 2007/02/06 For more info, go to: www.cbc.ca Chris Hedges is a Pulitzer prize winning writer and author of "American Fascists." In his latest release, the former New York Times correspondent compares the US Christian right to 20th Century fascism. As a son of a preacher, Hedges has a deep knowledge of the Bible which he uses to openly blast the role of Christianity in politics. Hedges believes the far right Christian believers have been manipulated by the high power, allowing for bigotry and intolerance. (AND HE IS RIGHT!!!!) Unlike Chris, I grew up in a strict seperatists fundamentalist baptist household. Much of details I have read were already known to me. I like his book because it is bringing to light the Fascist nature of American Religion. It has been my struggle, unlike most Christians and Non-Chrisians, to see this Christianity as anything but fascist in nature. I highly recomend picking up this book. Also I recomend picking up a copy of "The Holy Reich: Nazi Conceptions of Christianity, 1919-1945" by Richard Steigmann-Gall
