Item description for Persecution: How Liberals Are Waging War Against Christianity by David Limbaugh...
Overview The bestselling author of "Absolute Power" delivers a wake-up call to lovers of liberty everywhere and a call to action to conservatives and Christians to defend the religious freedom envisioned and practiced by the founders.
In this New York Times bestseller, David Limbaugh exposes the liberal hypocrisy of promoting political correctness while discriminating against Christianity. From the elimination of school prayer to the eradication of the story of Christianity in America from history text-books, this persuasive book shows that our social engineers inculcate hostility toward Christianity and its values in the name of "diversity," "tolerance," and "multiculturalism."
Limbaugh explains through court cases, case studies, and true stories the widespread assault on the religious liberties of Christians in America today and urges Christians to fight back to restore their First Amendment right of religious freedom.

Insighful Analysis Apr 1, 2008
Mr. Limbaugh provides insights into political persecution of Christians in America. Expect most ideas that have made Western civilization great to become illegal or twisted in the next fifty years. An excellent and insightful analysis of the culture war against Christians.
Persecution Feb 9, 2008
Excellent expose` of the systematic cleansing of any vestige of Christianity in America, especially by the Communist-front organization ACLU. No bigotry allowed in America, except against evangelical Christians.
Disheartening Compilation Dec 7, 2007
I picked this book up because it was quoted in several other books I have read. It was actually depressing to see how many recent cases there have been of Christians being persecuted for their beliefs in a country that was founded for the escape of it! We've heard these stories in the news over the years but the impact doesn't hit you until you see them all compiled between two covers. Very informative and well-written. I am looking for other books by this author.
Who's inflicted more damage on Christians--Saddam or W. Bush? Dec 2, 2007
Admittedly, I saw this prominently displayed on a bookstore shelf and couldn't resist spending some time (too much) with it. How profiteering alarmists like Limbaugh and his lot can continue getting mileage out of demonizing "the media" (translation: the limited media that doesn't reduce all global, national, and local issues to an "us vs. them" mentality), portraying "liberals" as infidels, antichrists, and domestic terrorists, and without even defining what a "liberal" is, simply boggles the mind. In lieu of defining "liberal" (which might require some historical research and even abstract thought), it's always a matter of singling out poster "bad boys"--newscasters fallen out of favor, educators who believe in the value of teaching not rules but how to think, scientists who teach what has been known and proven by enlightened beings for thousands of years, along with gays, feminists, pro-choice, anti-capital punishment, anti-NRA types--and keep hauling them out for yet another pummeling before the insatiably sadistic haters of all things rumoured to be "liberal."
Understandably, there's a considerable hard-core "conservative" base (but certainly not "conservationists" of the Constitution or of the tolerance represented throughout Christian texts) that requires books like Limbaugh's as periodic reminders of their own significance--better to be a victim or martyr than a non-entity. The central issue, as even Limbaugh & Co. would claim, is about security--however, it's not national security but personal insecurity that makes these fear-mongers attractive to so many uninformed readers. The fans of the Limbaughs, Coulters, O'Reilly's, Hannerty's (whatever happened to "intellectual" conservatives like Buckley?) are drawn to this stuff not for enlightenment but personal reassurance--it makes them feel better about themselves.
Most of these righteous far-righters, moreover, support the Iraq initiative and view all the tragic waste of resources--monetary, cultural, and human lives--as worth it, if only to take out Saddam--and also because if it happened under a Republican president perceived as "conservative," it must be right. It's unlikely this audience will ever take the time to read a modern history of Iraq ("Understanding Iraq" by William Polk might be a start). They would learn that since (and because of) the American invasion a small but nonetheless vital Christian community in Iraq has virtually been eradicated by radical Islamists, its churches emptied or bombed to smithereens, the surviving members forced to seek refuge in Iran, Syria, Jordan (certainly not the open arms of the U.S.A). Maybe that's the "war against Christianity" that Limbaugh really has in mind. It would certainly be much closer to the truth.
At its core the meaning of "liberal" is change (and, of course, progress). Yes, America has changed in many significant ways over the past 100 years, and at an accelerating pace over the past 40 years. We have become less religious, but through our own backsliding and consumer distractions, not because of some "nefarious plot" that not even a Joe McCarthy could have dreamt up. And we have become more open to other points of view--to a great extent because the numbers and developments in our society have increased at such a rapidly exponential rate that we could not exist as a nation without greater tolerance and acceptance of one another. But if Mr. Limbaugh wants to see a real, blood-spilling war against Christianity, he's looking in the wrong place; if he wants, moreover, to see the face of those who perpetuate such wars, he needs only look in the mirror.
Finally the true "liberal" has been exposed, and he's every bit as bad as Mr. Limbaugh claims.
David Limbaugh's "Persecution," and educational read Nov 14, 2007
I first read this book around five or six years ago. So I don't recall many of the court cases he sites, or any specific example now that I think about it. However, the one thing that really struck me that I won't forget is how Mr. Limbaugh proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that some people within our country truly hate Christians, and that they are doing everything within their power to steal our ability to freely worship God. They will do just about anything they can to thwart and rip down christianity in the United States. Limbaugh quotes example after example of christians getting attacked by what I'll call "Christian hate groups." He paints a picture of some well known groups (like the ACLU and others) that you won't soon forget.
In the end this was an educational read for me. I don't agree with all his conclusions, and I definately don't feel that we have it anywhere near as bad as some of our christian brothers and sisters in other country's. However, this book properly informs the reader of some court cases that have taken place, and serves as a good warning to us. We can not allow the laws to be written in a way that strips us of our religious freedom. There are groups and individuals out there that would love nothing less than to outlaw christianity. Just because they hide in the shadows right now doesn't mean they don't exsist. There is a difference between freedom of religion and the governments self imposing freedom from religion on it's citizens. Were not there yet thank God.
