I probably should clarify a few things from my last post American Fascists. Woah, don’t everyone complain at onceâ€¦
Honestly? I’ve got more to say on the subject. I won’t be long. Those who know me or have seen my F.A.Q.‘s, one frequently asked question, in particular. About God and whether I believe in one, could take my impressions of the book, or the book itself (save that one quote stipulating “we’re Christian,” of course) as anti-Christian or anti-belief in God. And while I make my views known, I’m not anti anything.
In fact as far as Christianity goes I’m very interested in the religion and the Bible, specifically. Not for any other reason than I hear it’s a good read. What the hellâ€¦
And concerning American Fascists, neither it or the author, Chris Hedges are anti-Christian. In fact he is a Christian himself “who graduated from seminary at Harvard Divinity School.” And his book is merely about an idiot sect of a mainstream religion. Ironically George W. Bush fights what he most certainly is. A fundamentalist or better still an extremist.
Anyway if the quotes I chose seem slanted, I’ll admit, they are, but they are what spoke to me as a “non-believer.” I couldn’t help it. But please don’t be influenced not to read this book purely on what I chose to post. It’s a really important read and you should read it, regardless.
There I’m done…
