Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Praise From Great Christian Leaders for Rev. Donald Wildmon:

There are few Christian leaders on the national scene who have done more to advance the cause of righteousness and defend biblical truth than Don Wildmon. For more than thirty years, he has been a voice crying in the wilderness, confronting immorality and speaking the truth when others are unwilling to do so. Every American who espouses a biblical worldview owes Don a debt of gratitude, and I am honored to call him my friend. --James C. Dobson Ph.D. chairman and founder, Focus on the Family

Don Wildmon is an indefatigable culture warrior, a great defender of the Christian faith. --Chuck Colson founder, Prison Fellowship

One of America's greatest leaders in the ongoing battle for God, Family, and Country. --Phyllis Schlafly

Within the pages of this book, you will discover that we are a nation at war. Now is not the time for cowardice. Now is the time to let our voices be heard. --Janet Parshall

In my thirty years of knowing Rev. Wildmon, I've realized that he cares not if he pleases any earthly power. That's why I singled him out in my recent book Do the Right Thing as one of the national leaders who is driven by principles and not by politics. --Mike Huckabee

Format: Hardcover
Somehow, Christianity is just supposed to go away. Look at the other review on this site. First, I would recommend actually reading the book before posting a review. Secondly, the book is thoroughly annotated and documents a plethora of cases where Christianity is now considered hate speech. I am a Christian and can tell you from my own personal experiences that this book tells the truth. People of faith are becoming more fearful in a climate and a culture that makes fun of Christianity in secular, business and even family settings. You either have to surround yourself with people of similar beliefs, or you have to shut up around people who might feel "uncomfortable" with talk of faith, especially the name of Jesus. It's a total lie that somehow the religious right is imposing their views on any one. We are attempting to just keep what's ours. The constituion protects free speech, and this book is ammunition in the current culture war.

Christian speech is in peril and this book identifies the remedies that can be used to bring the U.S. back to its Christian roots. I have recommended the book and DVD to all of my family members and to all church congregations that we attend as we travel around the U.S.

The book is a must read for all Christians. The war on morality today is so pervasive that even innocence is seen as being "gay" ...innocence as in not sexually active.

Rev. Wildmon has done a good job of compiling some really disturbing trends. Some of the other reviewers who gave this book bad reviews must be liberals, non-christians or both. Christians are being silenced bit by bit. A lot of it comes from public schools. For instance instead of "Merry Christmas" it's "Happy Holidays." Students not allowed to bring bibles to school. In her graduation speech one Valedictorian was prohibited to say the work Jesus in her speech. Homosexuality being promoted in schools.

This book brings out a lot of good points. America is in a downward spiral. As George Washing ton said, "A republic must have two pillars. Religion & Morality." Both of these are going south in America very fast.

Throughout the West Christianity is increasingly coming under attack. Religious freedom in general and Christianity in particular are both under direct assault as the West moves in a leftwards and secular direction.

Donald Wildman, who has for decades championed pro-faith and pro-family causes, here documents the relentless war being waged against biblical Christianity. He provides numerous examples of how Christians in North America are being targeted by secular activists.

All these cases of anti-Christian bigotry and intimidation make for very sobering reading. One wonders how it is that a nation like the US has so quickly become a land where Christians are being bullied into silence, and where activist minority groups are turning the values and beliefs of a once great nation upside down.

Earlier books have offered similar warnings. Persecution by David Limbaugh (Regnery, 2003) and The Criminalization of Christianity by Janet Folger (Multnomah, 2005) were two such books. But things have heated up considerably even since those volumes were released.

Simply listing the many examples of the war on Christianity could fill volumes. Consider briefly a few recent cases:

-Christians are arrested for expressing their concerns about homosexuality.
-A church was told by the government that it must allow lesbian "weddings" to be performed there.
-Workers are being fired for simply quoting from the Bible.
-Christians are jailed for singing in a public park where a homosexual festival is held.
-School kids have been threatened for daring to recite passages of Scripture.
-Christian charities are being shut down for refusing to comply with politically correct agendas.

though sometimes a bit weak stylistically, the overall theme should be alarming to all Christians. Mr. Wildmon draws clear and concise outcomes if we shut our eyes to what is happening to our culture. and if we choose to not speak out and defend what we know to be morally and Biblicaly right, we will forever lose our right to speak and may ultimately find that homosecularists even invade our sacred scriptures of the Bible and alter God's holy word. don't look away. dare to read the book and share it.
