Editorial Reviews

In Worshipping the State: How Liberalism Became Our State Religion, author Benjamin Wiker asserts that America is being de-Christianized by liberals. Wiker uses a stockpile of historical data to prove that, since the dawn of Rome, liberals in the West have always sought to de-Christianze the state. Wiker believes that the founding fathers did not intend to secularize America, and that without Christianity America loses its moral foundation. Wiker’s exhaustive investigation of history is easy to appreciate, as is his calm rhetoric. For Wiker, liberals have usually ultimately lost their bid to replace god with government. Outlined here is Wiker’s comprehensive plan for remaking the state as a faith-based institution. Ken Maxon narrates this 23-hour tome with resounding sincerity.

Publisher's Summary

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 Liberalism Became Our State 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 secular 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 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 liberalism, 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.

Less Than Enthralling

While the premise is good and some of the perspectives are rather intriguing and thought-provoking, a lot of the points are so repetitive as to be painful. Also, some of the points seem or appear to be as biased as the author blames the other side of being.
