Tad Delay

Against the future: On sadism and anxiety in evangelical politics.

Religious studies scholar Tad Delay examines the sadism at the heart of evangelical politics - as the capitalist branch of Christian theology hardens around White supremacy and social hierarchy, a deep vein of apocalyptical cruelty runs throughout the religious right's response to the end-times conditions of their own making.

Tad is author of Against: What Does the White Evangelical Want? from Cascade Books.
