Secular Sabotage Book Review & Giveaway


About The Book:

This assault is not happening from accident or whim. It is happening because disaffected liberals have deliberately set out to upend our Judeo-Christian traditions. Indeed, they are determined to tear down the traditional norms, values, and institutions that have been part of American society from its founding. The cultural debris that these saboteurs have created will take decades to clean up.

In feisty prose Donohue explores our nation where a college student is threatened with expulsion because she prayed on campus, a civil rights organization protests a statue of Jesus found on the ocean floor and a housewife sues a school district to stop the singing of Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer at a school choral production. These are just a few examples cited that demonstrate a culture descending into madness.

Donohue takes no prisoners as he digs out and exposes the groups behind this all-out attack on our Christian traditions. Among these are the radical atheists, the proponents of multiculturalism, the sexual libertines, the Hollywood elite with their not-so-hidden agenda and lawyers who collaborate for profit.


About The Author:


William Donohue has been the president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights since 1993. Founded in 1973, the League works to safeguard both the religious freedom and free speech of Catholics in America. Trained as an educator, he began his teaching career at St. Lucy's School in New York's Spanish Harlem and went on to teach sociology at La Roche College in Pittsburgh. He holds a Ph.D. in sociology from New York University.

He serves on many boards, including the Washington Legal Foundation, the Jewish Action Alliance, Ave Maria Institute and the Christian Film & Television commission.

Dr. Donohue lives on Long Island, New York.


 My Review:

Donahue pulls no punches in Secular Sabotage. He writes with great knowledge and it is obvious that he has done his research about how "secularism" is destroying America as we know it. From the Art world to pro-life issues to Christmas,  Donahue leaves no topic alone. Although I do not agree with everything Donahue states in Secular Sabotage, he gives a great picture of how America in general, and government in particular, views religion and Catholicism.  He is very clear in his book that he does not want to quiet the voices of oppressers of Christianity, he just wants people to stop bashing Christianity. When I first read this book, I felt like I was listening to someone standing on a soapbox and venting about all that is wrong with the world. Essentially that is what Donahue is doing, but he does it in such a way that all reading will understand the issues at hand. He is simply telling the reader about specific situations and the ramifications.  This book is well written and very well researched. I highly recommend for anyone who is interested in how politics and Christianity go "head to head" in America.
