God's Politics: Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn't Get It is a 2005 book by author Jim Wallis. The book focuses on the role of religion in politics, and critiques both the so-called "religious right" and the "secular left". His criticism includes quotations from the Bible, as he accuses U.S. President George W. Bush of practising bad theology, noting that Jesus was strictly nonviolent, and said more about social justice than homosexuality. He defends religion in general, and challenges organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union for overreacting to public displays of religion.
