Lake Mary, FL— If you have a television, radio, or smartphone, then you have undoubtedly witnessed the escalating cultural war on traditional values. In his new book, God Less America (FrontLine, 2014), FOX News commentator Todd Starnes uses both recent news stories and compelling interviews with today’s top conservative leaders to bring to light what is happening across our country.
In his award-winning, satire-meets-serious writing style, Starnes uses a collection of true stories and interviews with people, including former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin and megachurch pastor Dr. Robert Jeffress, to demonstrate that we live in a day when right is now wrong and wrong is now right.
“Some evangelical Christian pastors who are not prone to preach politics from their pulpits tell me that a day is coming when Christians may be required to engage in acts of civil disobedience,” Starnes says. “That should be a wake-up call to every Christian in the nation. Imagine a nation where Christian children are silenced and punished for their faith. Imagine a nation where taxpayers must fund abortions. Imagine a nation where Christian business owners are brought up on discrimination charges because of their faith. This is happening in modern-day America.”
Starnes says the perfect storm is brewing with the White House waging an all-out
assault on religious liberty, public schools indoctrinating our children with the gospel of secularism, and Hollywood spewing toxins into our homes. The soundtrack of our lives is a pulsating mix of sex and violence and filth. The American family is in ruins. But what can we as Christians do?
“Together we are a mighty force,” says Starnes. “We need men and women willing to stand firm in the faith. We need patriots willing to defend religious liberty. They may spy on our phone lines. They may throw us in jail. They may take away our shops and bakeries. They may demand to know the content of our prayers. But we will not be bullied. We will not be intimidated. We will not be silenced.”
Bradley Waldrop, host of Business Integrity Matters radio will be interviewing Todd Starnes at the International Christian Retail Show this June. Todd's interview will be aired at a later date and links to the content will be provided.
If you will be in the Atlanta area June 22-26, we would love to see you at the ICRS 2014 show! We'll be in the media room and walking the halls - come by and say hi!
