Theocracy thesis, got books?
Hey all.
I study Public administration. The problem is, I need to write a thesis to get my Bc. And choice of topics is very limited. I want to write about "Politics and Religion" on the Philosophy Cathedra but it must have something to do with public administration or it won't get approved. I just saw Aron Ra's speech on theocracy in America (Texas) and this is exactly a material I'd need with ISBN on it.




If I write a thesis about the Christian infiltration into public offices in America and what is the mischief that they do , that would be great. (my school is very internationally and America-oriented)
However, I need BOOKS about the topic, it all depends on whether or not can I get books. The more books straight to the point, the better. I'd say 5-6 of them is minimum. I'd also need some documents on what kinds of local authorities there are in America, what kinds of position Christians like to occupy and how are these public offices defined in American law. I know these aren't the juiciest parts about the threat of theocracy, but I'll need the boring legal stuff to make it relevant.

For example, in Czech Republic we have the 128+129/2000 laws that define all about a municipality and a region (both are public corporations) and also 561/2004, the school law that does not include the academia. But apparently, we don't have a Board of education, that is an American thing and,
- I need to know where it is defined
- if possible, some kind of book that writes about it

I ask here because someone might know something, recommend recommend BOOKS, laws, and so on. Isn't there a single lawyer, officer or judge on the forum or in the broader atheist community? Are these all just outraged scientists?
What kinds of books there are on the topic? Obviously, I'm heavily e-book oriented, I can't afford to pay for paper book delivery and wait months for them to arrive. So it's Amazon, B&N or if possible some dirt-cheap suspicious online download stores. Also, something that describes the municipal/regional/state/federal positions that Christians like to occupy and lobby, that would be greatly welcome.

These books might fit, although I'd need some more and also some law-oriented ones, if possible. You know what I mean, I hope.

Use your google machine to look up Sean Faircloth. He's with the Richard Dawkins Foundation. He was an openly atheist state senator, and I believe he has a book about religion and public policy.

Thanks for the advice. I got his book and I'll try to send him a message through Facebook for more materials.

Let us know how that book is. I'm still curious about it.

Also, your tagline makes me giggle inside. Tongue
