The Devil You Know: The Surprising Link between Conservative Christianity and Crime - Elicka Peterson Sparks
—John W. Loftus, author of Why I Became an Atheist
In this trenchant examination of Christianity’s dark side, a criminologist argues persuasively that high rates of violent crime in the United States can be correlated with Christian conservative attitudes, especially in regard to social mores and politics.
While not resorting to a blanket condemnation of Christianity or religion as a whole, Peterson Sparks issues a wake-up call regarding conservative Christianity’s toxic mixture of fundamentalism, authoritarian politics, patriotism, and retributory justice. Amazon
