Alternating between hilarious scenes from his childhood and acidic ruminations on the present state of an America he and his famous fundamentalist parents helped create, Frank Schaeffer asks what the Glenn Becks and the Rush Limbaughs and the Sarah Palins and the paranoid fantasies of the right-wing echo chamber are really all about. Heres a hint: sex. The central character in this strange-but true tale is a character indeed--the authors far-from-prudish evangelical mother, who sweetly but bizarrely provides startling juxtapositions of the religious and the sensual throughout young Schaeffers childhood. As the author notes: Hang out with the Schaeffer clan for a bit and discover why the religious right is mired in perpetual sexual dysfunction and weirdness that creates a self-loathing culture ready to lash out at the rest of us. And when they lash out, they do it all in the name of Jesus. Go figure.
