Overview


Many Christians feel that they are being opposed at every turn by what seems to be 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.

In Worshipping the State: How Government is Replacing Religion, Benjamin Wiker argues that it is liberals who seek to establish an official state religion: one of unbelief. Wiker reveals that it was never the intention of the Founders to drive religion out of the public square with the First Amendment, but centuries of secularists and liberals have deliberately misinterpreted the establishment clause to serve their own ends: the de-Christianization of Western civilization.

The result, they hope, is government as the new oracle. Personal faith in a deity is replaced with collective dependence on government, and the diversity of religious practices and dogmas is reduced to a uniform ideological agenda. The strategy is two-pronged: drive religion out of the public square through law and by encouraging popular derision of the faithful; 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, Worshiping the State 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.

Traces the historical development of modern secular liberalism from its origins to the present day. Wiker illustrates the methods used by the liberal state to undermine Christian virtues and replace them with Liberal values (materialism and hedonism). His analysis is objective, clear, and compelling.This book is not just for political conservatives or orthodox believers but for anyone troubled by the conflicting and irrational policies of our legislators today. How have educational institutions co-opted parents' rights to provide moral instruction to their children? Why does the law allow 13 year olds to buy abortifacients when Mayor Bloomberg wants to make it illegal to buy a "super size" soft drink? Why is it a federal and state crime to disturb a sea turtle's nest but not to murder a child by "partial birth abortion?" How was Kermit Gosnell able to get away with multiple murders for years even though many individuals and organizations were aware of serious problems at his facility? Anyone who has ever wondered how it all came about should read this book.
