In the wake of the Presidency of George W. Bush, the discussion about the separation of church and state has gained momentum. Where does the coveting of the Religious Right by the Bush Administration fit into this picture? What role do the attempted Gay-Marriage Ban and the "Compassionate Conservatism" language play? This book will try to answer these questions and make a connection between the politics of Neo-Conservatism and the social movement of the Religious Right.
