I find it interesting that the author of Christian Nation, who is so careful to establish his tolerance bona fides in matters of race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and religion (except you fundies; you're bad), is seemingly blind to one particular inclusionary buzzword. Despite the cast of Good Guys being a polyglot cast of every faith (except Evangelicals) and non-faith, they almost all stand to pee.
In fact, the novel only paints two female characters in any detail: One is portrayed as a social climber from the sticks; a shallow, power-obsessed, anti-intellectual harpy, and the other is Sarah Palin.
Meanwhile his protagonist appears to loathe the girlfriend described above, and never really describes what she looks like; she might have been blonde, I think? But, oh! How he goes on with the physical descriptions of the book's messiah figure!
This messiah happens to be the protagonist's former college roommate, a gay Indian guy who goes on to become the world's most self-effacing and virtuous dot-com squillionaire. He's also so good-looking that F3* uses it as proof he's the antichrist.
He's also a yogi who functions as a sort of Hindi anti-Galt, and our protagonist, an obvious author-insert, cannot talk about him without going on at length about the beauty of his perfectly symmetrical features and (I'm not making this up) the smell of his sweat when they do drunken yoga together.
The absolute best part of this is that he all but types "No homo!" after these interludes, too. There's this overwhelming sense that the author may not realize just how hard his subconscious is man-crushing on poor, doomed Sanjay. I've caught myself snickering hard enough at the seemingly ingenuous obliviousness of a couple of these digressions that I had to set the iPad down for fear of dropping it.
If I'm being trolled, he's doing it masterfully.
*F3=Fox, Faith, and Freedom: See, in the book, Ralph Reed's Faith and Freedom Coalition and Fox News merge to become F3. Seriously. And all the poor hicks out in flyover country who can't get real news because CNN and MSNBC and NPR are apparently unavailable outside of Manhattan, San Fran and the Chicago Loop, are brainwashed by F3.
