Know the enemy

Via AlterNet, here’s another book I’m going to have to add to my wishlist: The Sinner’s Guide to the Evangelical Right (amzn/b&n/abe/pwll). It’ll complement all the information on the subject I get from Jesus’ General.

    Also in the “know your enemy” thread, read this:
    Educational Psychology Meets the Christian Right, by David Berliner. Among the things he notes:

    “…The school curriculum used in many fundamentalist Christian schools was also analyzed and found to be limited, biased, and sometimes untrue. The arguments made against outcomes based education and whole language programs were found to be confused and chaotic. The antagonism of the Christian Right to these programs is based on a fear of losing control over their children’s thinking, rather than any compelling empirical data. It is concluded that many among the Christian Right are unable to engage in politics that make a common school possible.”
