Michael Parenti says that democracy can't survive under religious rule – whatever that religion may be. Parenti's warning in this archival recording is as timely and urgently expressed as it was when this speech was first given on April 12, 1987, during the second term of the Reagan administration.

This talk is also very funny. Parenti explains how God may be considered as a "founding father" and why Woody Allen calls him an underachiever. It is easy to extend this timeless analysis to the present circumstances.

With roots in a working class Italian district of New York City and a Ph.D. in political science from Yale Michael Parenti has become an internationally known writer and lecturer. He is the author of twenty-three books.
