Losing Our Religion: The Liberal Media's Attack on Christianity by S. E. Cupp

"The press has become a tool of oppression—politicized, self–aware, self–motivated, and power–hungry. . . . In short, these people can no longer be trusted." —From S. E. Cupp’s Losing Our Religion

It’s time to wake up and smell the bias. The go-to commentator for such programs as Fox News’s Hannity and CNN’s Larry King Live and Reliable Sources, S. E. Cupp is just that—a reliable source for the latest news, trends, and forecasts in young, bright, conservative America. Savvy and outspoken when shattering left-leaning assumptions as she did in Why You’re Wrong About the Right, Cupp now takes on the most pressing threat to the values and beliefs held and practiced by the majority of Americans: the marginalizing of Christianity by the flagrantly biased liberal media.

From her galvanizing introduction, you know where S. E. Cupp stands: She’s an atheist. A non-believer. Which makes her the perfect impartial reporter from the trenches of a culture war dividing America and eroding the Judeo-Christian values on which this country was founded. Starting at the top, she exposes the unwitting courtship of President Obama and the liberal press, which consistently misreports or downplays Obama’s clear discomfort with, or blatant disregard for, religious America—from covering up religious imagery in the backdrop of his Georgetown University speech to his absence from events surrounding the National Day of Prayer, to identifying America in his inaugural address as, among other things, "a nation of non-believers." She likens the calculated attacks of the liberal media to a class war, a revolution with a singular purpose: to overthrow God and silence Christian America for good. And she sends out an urgent call for all Americans to push back the leftist propaganda blitz striking on the Internet, radio, television, in films, publishing, and print journalism—or invite the tyrannies of a "mainstream" media set on mocking our beliefs, controlling our decisions, and extinguishing our freedoms.

Now, discover the truth behind the war against Christmas—and how political correctness keeps the faithful under wraps . . . the one-sided analyses of Prop 8 and the gay marriage debate . . . the media pot-shots at Sarah Palin’s personal faith . . . the politicization of entertainment mainstays such as American Idol and the Miss USA Pageant . . . and much more. Also included are her penetrating interviews with Dinesh D’Souza, Martha Zoller, James T. Harris, Newt Gingrich, Kevin Madden, and Kevin Williamson of National Review, delivering must-read analyses of the latest stunning lowlights from the liberal media.

"losing our religion" is a very remarkable book. governor mike huckabee has writtion a fantastic forword to this wonderful bestseller.the arthur has documented how the liberal media has gone out of its way to make christians look bad in the public and through other areas such as candidates who are christians and ministers and churchs and faith based instutions. s.e.cupp has really gathered alot of research showing how people of faith are having their freedom of speech challenged daily this book is really worth reading. great gift idea for a friend or family member

If S.E. Cupp were a religious woman, lefties would, to the infinitessimal degree to which they are capable of the faculty of thought, think, "Oh, yet another Religious Right extremist bellyaching about the left-wing media's assault on our Judeo-Christian values." As it turns out, Miss Cupp is a self-avowed atheist who has more respect for our nation's values than most Jews and Christians. Unlike many other atheists, she elucidates the virtues of Christianity, rather than denouncing Christianity, a la Dawkins, Maher and company. Thank you, S.E., for your honesty, and may you someday become a Christian, especially either Catholic or Eastern Orthodox! Regards, Reds Whittier, CA

A little late with the review, but I did think it was a fantastic read. Extremely well researched and written, Cupp's observations about the media's bias and attacks on Judeo-Christian principals. Written from the viewpoint of an admitted atheist, Cupp takes countless examples of the media's lack of respect and dignity for Christianity, many of which are downright cruel. Cupp simply does something very difficult to do; take an obvious subject and turn it into an interesting read. Good stuff!!

More rhetorical crap and why the republican party just doesn't get it. The description even on this page states "Obama’s clear discomfort with, or blatant disregard for, religious America—identifying America in his inaugural address as, among other things, "a nation of non-believers." One may question what the "among other things" was? Obama stated that the diversity of the country is what makes us strong and we are a nation of "Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus and non-believers". Partisan rhetoric like this book which aims to split and divide the citizens of this country, deleting facts to bend truths 180 degrees to make a false assumption become reality, is what's destroying this country. People like S.E. Cupp, and her ilk are a festering cancerous growth in this country. Unfortunately, we have to put up with these neocon nutcases and let them make fools of themselves like Sen Joseph McCarthy of generations past. This book is for die hard Republican Neocons who are starting to think for themselves and need another dose of the kool-aid.

S. E. Cupp is a young conservative commentator who is also an atheist. As such, you might expect her to be impatient of people who are strongly religious, but instead, she respects religious folks and especially faith-filled Christians, despite not sharing their beliefs. S. E. believes that Christians in the U.S. are being targetted by a cynical and disrespectful media, and that, to borrow her image, they won't be happy until the practice of Christian religion is like smoking -- something you're allowed to do in your own home but that must be kept out of the public square. Clearly, with the First Amendment guaranteeing the people's right to "freely exercise their religion", keeping religious folks from expressing their beliefs in the public square was never intended by the Founding Fathers, but S.E. presents strong evidence that many in the "elite media" would like to see it happen. The book is written with S.E.'s trademark flare and style, and anyone familiar with her news columns and her interviews on Fox News will recognize her personal touch. The writing is accessible without being pedestrian, and the research is surprisingly thorough. She digs up some very enlightening contrasts in how the media treats obviously fake professions of faith by liberals, vs. sincere ones by conservatives. If S. E. were a practicing Christian herself this book would be far less compelling. But the fact that she is an atheist and still sees so much bias against religious folks really drives the point home. And the bottom line, of course, is that she is not making the stuff up. There are well over 200 footnoted references. The only criticism I have of this book is that I wish it were longer. I love S.E.'s writing style and can't wait for her next book.

What doesn't S.E. Cupp do well ? She is absolutely right on the mark with this book. The timing is impeccable. Our country is at a crossroads and I hope that WE THE PEOPLE take more notice of the effects that the liberal media and liberal thinking in general has on our society. "God Bless America" is a phrase of which I am proud and do not take lightly. Kudos S.E. !

The subtitle of this book is "Why the Liberal Media Want to Tell You What to Think, Where to Pray, and How to Live": the book never answers this question. Ms. Cupp offers many examples (there are even a few footnotes, although there should be more, as well as perhaps even a bibliography), and this sets her apart from those who merely pontificate without even the appearance of factual support, but this also leads to the liability that the book is a laundry list of episodes--and an often too facetiously presented one at that--rather than what this book should, based on its very name, be: an argument of why and how the antipathy to religion exists. She posits intellectual elitism, for instance: "Way back in 1784, Immanuel Kant, in response to the Reverend Johann Friedrich Zollner's question 'What is Englightenment?' wrote 'Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-incurred immaturity.' This was Kant's condescending way of saying 'reason is for smart people and religion is for idiots.' Of course Kant's views were shared by such luminaries as Karl Marx and the Marquis de Sade." Has she even read that essay by Kant? Are his views in it really akin to those of the other two she mentions? Kant's response to Zollner is not a slam against the intellect of the religious, and he even goes on in some detail about a distinction he makes between offices where one must be obedient and follow dogma and offices where one must be scholarly and freely employ reason. Above all, Kant's point about reason seems to be that disagreement should take place in the right circumstances and in a reasonable way between reasonable men. If anything, in our time it is the anti-religious (the targets of Ms. Cupp's book) who eschew any rational discourse and merely attempt to stifle their opposition. Likening any of that to Kant seems a bit strange. She also quotes Dinesh D'Souza as saying that the destructive tendency of the press today "isn't how it was one hundred years ago." Really? Has he not heard of yellow journalism? "Do you know any reporters who are happily married, churchgoing, normal guys with a wife and three kids at home?" D'Souza asks and then answers, "Probably not." Huh? Is it a seriously offered contention that among the causes of the anti-religious problem in the news is that journalists today are just miserable people who lack the fine principles of their forebears? One critical observation Ms. Cupp makes, however, is this: "atheism isn't a creed or a value system, it's the absence of one." It underscores the very matter that she fails to explore: there is a long-standing value system, a way of morally apprehending the world, and its principal detractors lack a readily definable moral structure. So why does the liberal media want to tell you ... I don't think S.E. Cupp knows. I didn't really expect a colossal amount of depth from this work. Ms. Cupp is a young up-and-coming personality, a minor celebrity of sorts, and I suppose it's nice for her that works like this get her a bit of exposure, and a few nice congratulations from the more established maintstream conservative commentators. It's not really a particularly good book, though.
