Many Christians feel that they are being opposed at every turn by a well-orchestrated political and cultural campaign to de-Christianize every aspect of Western culture. They are right, and it goes even further back than the Obama Administration. Benjamin Wiker argues that it is liberals who seek to establish an official state religion: one of unbelief. He reveals that it was never the intention of the Founders to drive religion out of the public square with the First Amendment, but secular liberals have deliberately misinterpreted the establishment clause to serve their own ends: the de-Christianization of Western civilization.The liberal strategy is two-pronged: drive religion out of the public square, and then, in religion's place, erect the Church of the State to fill the human need for a higher power to look up to. But what was done can be undone. Outlining a simple, step-by-step strategy for disestablishing the state church of secularism, Wiker shows the full historical sweep of the war to those on the Christian side of the cultural battle--and as a consequence of this far more complete vantage, how to win it.
Praise for Worshipping the State:
"Wiker's book is the most forthright and unblinking analysis yet of the ubiquitous assault on religion in American society. Every believer in religious liberty should read it."
