Publishers Description There is a war going on for the future of our country. Most people know that. What they may not know is that if Christians lose, the result won't merely be enduring public policy we disagree with--it will be a prison sentence for those who oppose it. We've all seen the attack coming. First the Supreme Court said kids can't pray in school. Then the Ten Commandments were ripped from the classrooms. Now pastors are being removed from their pulpits and put in jail for speaking out against homosexuality (Sweden). And things are only getting worse. How in the world did we get to this place? And why is it that Christians are singled out in this assault on morality? Serving as a wake-up call for America, this book will expose the truth that Christianity is being criminalized--and that we must stand up against it now . As a Christian in this country, you may be understandably reluctant to speak out on moral issues like abortion, homosexuality, or pornography. But while we have the "right" to remain silent, that's not what God calls us to do. Because if the world can silence the truth, it "will" silence the gospel. Story Behind the Book In 1997, Janet Folger heard a speech by Bob Knight of the Family Research Council in which Knight said that the ultimate goal of the homosexual movement was the criminalization of Christianity. At the time, Janet considered his comment to be an overstatement. But then she watched, listened, and learned. Now pastors in Sweden are being thrown into prison for speaking against homosexuality from their own pulpits. Canadians are being fined tens of thousands of dollars for refusing to print materials they are morally opposed to. Can an intensified assault in the U.S. be far behind?

HEADS UP! Dec 1, 2008
I highly recommend this for anyone who loves the U.S., and wants to see her prosper. This book is a clear warning against the dark days that loom.
Speech and Religion are NOT what they were 20 years ago Dec 28, 2007
I don't want to get into a polemic dispute here, since I doubt most of the people opposed to this book have even read it, I simply state a fact. I'm 46 years old and it's completely obvious that freedoms of religion and speech are NOT the respected and protected beliefs they were 20 to 30 years ago. While certain current minority groups have more protection than ever, it's clear that in the next 10 to 20 years traditional freedoms(many are already gone) as we've known them for years is a thing of the past and the evidence is overwhelming that the soon-to-be majorities have no intention of providing us (The current majorities) with the same protections we have afforded them since at least the 1970's-example: Why did the police officers who beat Rodney King get re-tried under "hate crimes" laws when the gang members who permanently disabled Reginald Denney while attempting to kill him because he was white got off,when both crimes were clearly caught on film, not to mention that King is a now multi-millionaire ,who would be jailed permanently under any state with a "persistent felon law", while Denney is poor and disabled?.Who would you rather be? When it comes to the separation of church and state, the left has turned the original intent of the disestablishment clause on it's head and as for racial and homosexual agendas, it's clearly nothing but payback time.
An essential to understanding Christian Responsibility Dec 23, 2007
One of the best books I have read, it cogently examines and documents the incremental criminalization of Christianity, and offers a proactive Biblical response, a must read!
You better beware of those bad ole Christians! Aug 25, 2007
I mean it. They'll chop off your head if you disagree with them. Wait! That's not Christianity. That's some other religion.
Well, they have a plan for taking over the world and focing everyone to become Christians. No, that's not it. That's another religion.
Well, I'm sure they believe that if they die fighting to spread Christianity, they'll get seventy virgins. No. That's that other religion I can't think of the name of.
But I'm sure if you don't convert to Christianity, you'll be forced to pay most of your income as a tax to the Christian church. No. I heard that somewhere else.
I just can't think of the name of that other religion. Teacher said we weren't supposed to mention its name. It was okay to mention Christianity though, as long as we had something bad to say about it.
I guess I'm just confused. But everybody knows that Christians are bad people and that Christianity is just about the worst thing that ever happened.

Christians get out of your Bible bunkers. These people mean business and if you don't stand up for The Word, you'll fall down to the lies.
