Abstract

ABSTRAK Kevin Phillips' American Theocracy that was published in 2006, has succedeed proving his criticism toward the government of the United States. These book describes in details how religion (a radical strongly Christian fundamentalist) influences in American politics particularly in Bush administration. Kevin Phillips is indeed known as one of the American writers whose most of his works are related to his criticism toward the portray of American society. And here, he tries to explore the condition of the United States caused by religion, government, society and other aspects during Bush administration. He also performed an amazing description covering this book through empirical data he made. So in that case, I would like to find out the relation between religion and democracy as reflected in his book American Theocracy. In doing the research, this study applies content analysis in finding the data inside the book. The writer also analyzes collected data by analysing and interpreting from a statement and message in passage so that a clear meaning and in-depth comprehension can be acquired. The data is analyzed by analytical discourse method.The study is library research and the main source of this study, however, is the book of Kevin Phillips American Theocracy. Thus, the study employs sociology of religion approach which is used to understand the relation between religion and democracy. Based on the study, some significant findings were obtained. In his book American Theocracy, Phillips' views on religion and democracy are that religion will no longer be an inspiring factor. Religion merely is damaging democracy and is a threat to democracy. Democracy sphere was expressed politically by the religious right as a powerful vehicle for public policy-making in the United States. However, his works also leave critics. Anyway, religion is important to build up for ethical systems of ongoing social transformation. Religion ought to make the social order much better. Religion should have an inspiring in democratic space. Democracy needs also religion role in which it will exist. Somehow, conflict among groups in the United States is basically the sign of the democracy change.
