U.S. to Ban Christianity: Is This The Beginning of the End?

U.S. to Ban Christianity: Is This The Beginning of the End?

By SOP newswire2

 

A timely and well-documented new book, "America`s War on Christianity," presents compelling evidence that the continuing attacks on America`s Christian values constitute a real and present danger to one of our bedrock principles

The principle under attack is no less than public acknowledgement that the source of our liberty is Divine Providence. In fact, the very Liberty bell that pealed in Philadelphia on July 4, 1776, was named for the biblical inscription from Leviticus 25:10 emblazoned around it: "Proclaim liberty throughout the land, to all the inhabitants thereof."

Nevertheless, that principle is very much under attack. Brad O`Leary, the author of this new provides ample documentation of the strategies and tactics of the secular elitists behind this war. Their attacks include efforts to remove Christian symbols from public places, denying citizens the right to mention the name of Jesus in public, causing Christian teachers and school principals to deny their own basic religious freedoms for fear of lawsuits, and even the oft-repeated words of our own President that America is, "whatever we once were, no longer a Christian nation."

However, along with a well-documented presentation of these attacks, "the cites solid evidence from major public opinion polls, including Zogby, Gallup, Rasmussen and Pew, showing that most Americans hold Christian views. In fact, Rasmussen found in 2009 that a supermajority of 80% of Americans believe in a historical Jesus who lived and walked the earth, while only 8% do not. Clearly, the very small secular elite behind these attacks is way out of step with American values and beliefs.

"America`s War on Christianity" affirms the historical truth that Thomas Jefferson, the very one who originated the expression "separation of church and state" understood those words to mean freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. His own words, inscribed in the Jefferson Memorial, seemed to portend a time when the source of our liberty would no longer be assumed: "God, who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that those liberties are the gift of God?"

Those truths were near and dear to America`s Founding Fathers, to most citizens at the time, as well as to the vast majority of Americans today. However, they are under assault now by a radical fringe of secular elitists who want to strip all mention of these truths from our culture and society and thereby deny our very heritage. This is a clarion call to those who would rise up to end this madness, protect our heritage and affirm our nation as "one nation under God."


ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Brad O`Leary is publisher of The O`Leary Report and a former NBC Westwood One talk show host. He is the author of 13 books, including:  "Shut Up, America!
