Inhaltsangabe: Christians have been electing Republican politicians into office for more than a generation. This is the result of constant promises to bring traditional family values back to the nation. The Republican Party has failed to deliver on their promises. Nothing has changed. Abortions are still high as ever. Families are still breaking apart. Evangelical Christians voted to change the morality of the nation. Sadly, the only thing their votes changed was the tax code. God is Not a Republican is a political book about religion as well as a religious book about politics. The author explores today?s major issues from both biblical and political perspective. Dixon brings new insight and understanding to controversial issues. He approaches each issue from the concept of Oppressive Freedom. Some of the issues included in this book: Abortion and Reproductive Rights, Health Care Reform, Gay Rights and Marriage Equality, Race Matters, Capitalism and the Morality of Tax Policy In addition to the issues, the author weaves a historical narrative of the Republican mobilization and manipulation of Evangelical Christians. The names, Republican and Evangelical, are all but synonymous in today?s political discourse. The author explores how this phenomenon is the result of years of targeting Christian voters by Republican strategists. Religious rhetoric by politicians has attracted the Christian voter. Dixon also examines the nature of the conservative ideological religion that is the result of the generation long union between the Republican Party and Evangelical Christianity and how several of the Party?s platform planks are glaring contradictions the Christian faith. Finally, the author explores the true role of religion in the United States and how the entire nation can benefit from political leaders who, instead of merely talking about Jesus, sincerely act like Jesus.
