Televangelist Pat Robertson has built one of the most powerful religious-political movements in American history. His Christian Coalition - with its '700 Club' broadcasting fundamentalism tinged with right-wing politics to an audience of millions, its American Center for Law and Justice legal action group attempting to impose far-right Christian ideas via the courts, and the growing number of graduates from its Regents University - wields a mighty sword within the Republican party in at least 25 states while GOP national leaders and presidential hopefuls court its favour. Despite his power, many Americans are not aware of Robertson's extreme political views or his goals for the United States. This book examines the role Robertson plays in contemporary politics and his efforts to influence American society through his various political organisations, businesses, and broadcast empire.

From the Back Cover:

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.
