The book identifies fourteen personality traits of these bullies,their tactics, and how they misuse the Bible to abuse children and attack identified “out-groups,” including women, the LGBT community, and social programs for thedisadvantaged. Six of these personality traits were previously identified in a study,commissioned after World War II by the American Jewish Committee, to try to understandthe mind-set of Europeans who supported Hitler’s atrocities.Chapters discuss misogyny, sexual diversity, child abuse, intelligent design, public prayer,separation of church and state, social programs, and family planning, in the processrevealing specific targets of Bible bullies and their misguided use of Scripture in their assaulton their victims.After identifying the salient traits of Bible bullies and how they attack their victims, thebook discusses the bullies’ MO—how they operate.

The end goal, it seems, is to undermine the constitutionalcivil liberties guaranteed to us all.The final chapters reveal the crucial rift in the New Testament that laid the groundwork forthose seeking to distort the message of peace and love brought by Jesus.Bible Bullies, through biblical analysis and documented research, explains many of thepolitical issues of our times in ways that most Christians have not considered:1.

Wade and focusing on alternate strategies3. Why gays, lesbians and transsexuals are born the way that God created them4. Why using the biblical rod causes juvenile delinquency, depression, behavior disordersand hatred of authority5. Why Congress continues to be misogynistic and why Jesus was not6. Why civil laws differ drastically from the biblical laws of Leviticus and how Jesuspioneered the change7. Why King James I sponsored the translation of the Bible for his own political gain, andwhat he and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Scalia have in common8. Why conflating politics with religion can be dangerous, as it was when Hitler declaredGermany a Christian nation prior to WWII9. Why the fundamentalist attack on educational institutions has contributed to the lowstanding of students in science in the United States in comparison with the standing ofstudents of other nations, and what can be done about it without attacking religious beliefsBible Bullies will be published in both E-book and trade book formats (epub and mobi)through all online retailers as well as in all bookstores by July 4, 2013.
