Why the religious right is wrong about separation of church & state by Rob Boston( Book )
8 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in English and held by 708 libraries worldwide
To expose the Religious Right's blatant distortions of U.S. history and correct its skewed analysis of legal rulings, Boston objectively reviews the evolution of church-state relations in the United States and looks at how the separation principle has been applied by the courts. He also examines efforts by sectarian groups to win government support for their schools, the school prayer issue, the history of the free exercise of religion, and the controversial role of religion in the public square. Boston concludes by giving readers strategies for defending the separation principle from attacks by the Religious Right. The author insists that separation of church and state is the best policy for both institutions and asserts that with out it the United States cannot remain a free nation
The most dangerous man in America? : Pat Robertson and the rise of the Christian Coalition by Rob Boston( Book )
4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 638 libraries worldwide
Televangelist Pat Robertson has built one of the most powerful religious-political movements in American history. His Christian Coalition's empire extends across the nation, encompasses nearly every media form, has legal and educational outlets, and is now so influential that presidential hopefuls court its favor. Despite this, many Americans are unaware of Robertson's extremism or his theocratic agenda. Government under Robertson's control would regress to a point where freedom for gays, women, and even those Christians who do not espouse Robertson's own brand of fundamentalism would be virtually nonexistent. And with the Christian Coalition's current hold over the Republican party, Robertson himself would not have to be in the White House to have control. By examining Robertson's own words, author Robert Boston exposes the Christian Coalition's ultimate goal of destroying the wall that separates church and state
Close encounters with the religious right : journeys into the twilight zone of religion and politics by Rob Boston( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 312 libraries worldwide
"Like a zoologist tracking rare animals, Boston has spent twelve years following the Religious Right "in the field." He has attended meetings and conferences of devotees, toured headquarters of Religious Right organizations, and debated group leaders in the media. Now, in Close Encounters with the Religious Right, he offers revealing insights about its message and intentions, illustrating why the next few years could determine the fate of traditional American liberties such as separation of church and state, privacy rights, and religious liberty."--BOOK JACKET
Taking liberties : why religious freedom doesn't give you the right to tell other people what to do by Rob Boston( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 108 libraries worldwide
"A concise and lucid explanation of what religious freedom is and isn't Increasingly, conservative religious groups are using religious liberty as a sword to lash out at others. In this forcefully argued defense of the separation of church and state, Robert Boston makes it clear that the religious freedom guaranteed in the First Amendment is an individual right, the right of personal conscience, not a license allowing religious organizations to discriminate against and control others. The book examines the controversy over birth control, same-sex marriage, religion in public schools, the intersection of faith and politics, and the "war on Christmas," among other topics. Boston concludes with a series of recommendations for resolving clashes between religious liberty claims and individual rights"--
