9781937276478: Culture Wars: The Threat to Your Family and Your Freedom

Boldly stated and passionately supported, this argument against religious influence on the American government and legal system analyzes the impact that religion has on culture in the United States. The book makes the claim that many laws based on religious beliefs, specifically theology promoted in the Middle Ages, are misattributed as long-standing social values and that changing the theology itself threatens the religious institution supporting it-igniting a cultural war engulfed in fear and resulting in political dysfunction. It reveals that from sexuality to family planning and the tax system, religious doctrines permeate and direct American life without accounting for the differing views of individuals, and in response, the author provides strategies for overcoming the imposition of external religious views and demonstrates the value in standing up for a secular nation where morality is not tied to one particular religious group.

About the Author:

Review:

“I read this book and was amazed and entranced. Ms. Castle has made me think hard about [these] topics. . . . While some may not wholly agree with her positions or conclusions, it is impossible not to admire her breadth of knowledge, her passion and compassion, and her clear-headed, strong convictions.”  —Arvonne Fraser, civic leader and former U.S. ambassador, UN Commission on the Status of Women
