God's Politics.

I just finished Jim Wallis' book, God's Politics (only took me 4 months of reading on the El to work and back). This quote is from an article on the focus of television demographics, but quotes the book.

"The real theological problem in America today is no longer the religious right, but the nationalist religion of the Bush administration, one that confuses the identity of the nation with the church, and God's purposes with the mission of American empire. America's foreign policy is more than pre-emptive, it is theologically presumptuous; not only unilateral, but dangerously messianic; not just arrogant, but rather bordering on the idolatrous and blasphemous. ... This is a dangerous mix of bad foreign policy and bad theology." - Jim Wallis
It's definitely a book worth reading, if you've every been to church or voted.
