Religious Right to hold thanksgiving service for Bush

-18/01/05

US Christians in Washington are to mark the inauguration of the US President by holding a service giving 'thanks to God' for the re-election of George W. Bush.

However the news comes at the same time as the publication of a radical Christian book which challenges the moral agenda of US President George Bush, and many right-wing Christians in the US. The book hit the Amazon.com top 10 in the USA last week - even before its official launch.

"God's Politics: Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn't Get It" by Jim Wallis from the Sojourners community in Washington DC, challenges many of the assumptions of the debate surrounding 'values voters' in the recent US Presidential elections.
