Few things would better safeguard religious freedom than if American . The status and nature of religious freedom in America is especially important right now. Until very recently, a strong case could be made.

Few things would better safeguard religious freedom than if American evangelicals regained their leadership position on religious freedom. Shut your gates," said a prominent New Yorker who would soon launch a political career. A foreign nation, he warned, was sending us "their criminals" because the United States hadn't erected enough "walls" or "gates. Until very recently, a strong case could be made that the United States had found a better way-indeed, that America's model of religious freedom is perhaps its greatest invention.

Longtime financial and legal adviser Stanley Rader-recently ordained an evangelist-looks at the constitutional questions involved in that action; but this is mainly a tract (published by the Church-owned Everest House) in which Rader vociferously denies all charges and eulogizes Armstrong. According to Rader, after Garner Ted Armstrong was excommunicated by his father in 1971, he began attacking the Church-claiming that his father was senile and that Rader was maneuvering to succeed him (""totally absurd,"" says Rader).

This book is best understood if you know something about the Worldwide Church of God, the religious cult founded by Herbert W. Armstrong (An entire section of the book "The Kingdom of the Cults" tells about the WCG.) The following is from the entry on author Stanley R. Rader, from Wikipedia: "Stanley Rader, who still considered himself to be a Jew, was baptized into the Worldwide Church of God by Herbert W. Armstrong in 1975 using a hotel bathtub in the Mandarin Hotel in Hong Kong. This move allowed Stanley Rader to reposition himself as a high-ranking church evangelist[1]."
Interestingly, Rader started out as the church's accountant and attorney. At one time, the church was taking in tens of millions of dollars annually, and Armstrong was spending the money as if it was all his personal, private stash. For that reason the State of California put the church in "receivership," meaning the state was taking control of all of it's expenditures. The book is the story of how he (Rader) and Armstrong got back their control over the church's money. Though it's subtitle is"The threat to Religious freedom in America," a much more accurate sub-title would be" The Threat to Religious Cults in America."

One of the best accounts of failed attempts by the government to restrict religious freedom in a country where it is supposed to be a birthright. The Worldwide Church of God, a Christian Church situated in Pasadena, California, is attacked by the state and put under a receivership based on the claims of ex-members. What follows is the inspiring true story of the ambitions of the then-attorney general of arguably the most powerful state in the union to regulate Church property and thus unavoidably Church activities, and the worldwide membership of this Church which fights against it. If you are interested in the historic struggle of Religion to survive in the face of government opposition, then this book is for you. It is inspiring, not only for members of the WCG, but for Churches nationwide (worldwide even) as even those religious organizations opposed to the Worldwide Church of God stand up for religious freedom... fighting against what some feel is the most calculated attack ever made.
I guess my comments might be taken as somewhat skewed, as I am a proud member of the Worldwide Church of God, but I can honestly say that the story would inspire me REGARDLESS of the Church it came from. Its a must-read for those who feel the tightening grip of the government over our historic right to believe and worship God as our consciences require
