W.T. Jeffrey's The Arguably Immoral Agenda of the Reverend R.I. Twinger provides a critical look at the rising trend of Christian fundamentalism in the US. Cast as a satirical parody, the talk show Common Sense with host Paine Thomas uses a question and answer format to bring readers face to face with the views being expressed by the Christian right.
Numerous politicians including a number of 2016 presidential candidates have expressed they believe the bible as interpreted by Christian fundamentalists is a higher moral and perhaps legal authority than constitutional law. These for many are shocking claims. The issue of separation between church and state has never been more important to review. The future of civil liberties, immigration and foreign policy, women's rights, the advancement of science, and public education hang in the balance.
W.T. Jeffrey offers a fair presentation of the conservative agenda and is careful not to distort their views which have frequently been at the center of public debate and opinion. In fact some right wing readers may actually agree with the positions held by Reverend Twinger. The Arguably Immoral Agenda of the Reverend R.I. Twinger will for some be controversial and offensive, yet a breath of fresh air for others. It is a quick read, but poignant and compelling. If liberty, respect for diversity, and opportunity for all citizens are going to continue to characterize the "American dream," the theocratic intentions being pressed by conservative Christians cannot be ignored or taken lightly. The Arguably Immoral Agenda of the Reverend R.I. Twinger is, "arguably," one of the most important books for our time.
