Well, I don't have a clue as to whether the book is any good but the press release gives us that wonderful phrase above for radical evangelical leaders who, "by exploiting religion for political advantage, shatter the principles of separation of Church and State that underlie our democracy."
The book is The Devil's Own Politics (not bad either) by the late Joel W. Harnett, a publisher, poet and soldier. According to the press release:
Harnett describes the "dumbing down" of America, where scientific truth, evolution, and modern advances of knowledge are shunted aside in the service of sectarian dogma. In The Devil's Own Politics he brings new phrases such as "God-spin" and "crotch politics" into our language and exposes the evangelical political movement for the arrogant and destructive element it has become in American society.
