Pay attention, people of faith. Dark clouds are gathering. The winds of intolerance are blowing. There’s a great storm approaching.

American Christians are facing uncertain times. Our nation’s values are under assault. Religious liberty has been undermined. We live in a day when right is now wrong and wrong is now right. The vicious leftwing attack against the recent tradi

Another embarrassment. Demagoguery 101. Culture War clichetopia. A rehash of multiple rehashes of 1970s era Moral Majority/Christian Coalition doom and gloom predictions about how Christians are now a persecuted minority in America.

What does Mr. Starnes consider as evidence of "the war on Christianity"? Well, things like, you know, the Democratic Convention booed God that one time. And the Duck Dynasty guy had that trouble after he made those gay marriage remarks. Starnes predicts that there wil
What you’d expect of a professional journalist. Well-researched and written, in fact I think I heard some of these essays on Starnes’ nationally broadcast commentary. His style is easy to read; it communicates both his sincerity and dismay. But this is an odd book, mixing down-home reminisces with political satire, commentary and a call-to-arms, plus several chapters of fictional speculation. Might make better sense split into two or three different books.

Starnes expertly shares his concern over
I had trouble finding his book on Goodreads, possibly because Goodreads has the title spelled wrong, (it's America not American), but perhaps also because it should never have been published. This book is pathetic. It's difficult to believe that anyone could see and write with so much deliberate tunnel vision. The author adamantly refuses to check both sides of the story and write from an honest, ethical perspective. This is his third book so by now one would think he would have learned somethin ...more

This being the second Todd Starnes book I have read, or in this case listened to, I am becoming somewhat of a fan. He is funny but knowledgeable. His writing is simple and easy to read. He causes you to both think and feel.

Here we have a list of things no one would have believed could happen in America. The world has been turned upside down. The very things your parent taught you were right and noble are now seen as bigoted and hateful. To love God and you neighbor is now seen as racist, extreme

Homophobic, transphobic bullshit
I'm currently reading this with my husband, and we've just finished chapter 5. My husband and I were scratching our heads at this chapter, that details a ridiculous plan by Obama's administration to create a new Obama lead religion. Turns out it's all in Starne's imagination.
If I wasn't reading this with my husband, I think I'd consign it to my unfinished shelf. Sure, some of the issues he's reported on concern me, but I happen to disagree with him on others. And I don't appreciate a fictional
I often hear, and enjoy, radio commentaries by Todd Starnes. So when I learned that he had a book out, and that he wanted bloggers to read and review it, I was happy to comply. God Less America: Real Stories From the Front Lines of the Attack on Traditional Values is his book.

The book is largely news reports on various outrages in our nation today. I was able to read a succinct version, for the first time, of the sad tale of Saeed Abedini, a Christian pastor imprisoned in Iran because of his Chr

In God Less America: Real Stories on the Attack on Traditional Values, Fox News reporter and commentator, Todd Starnes chronicles the myriad of ways Americans’ constitutional freedoms of speech and religion are consistently under assault. Starnes effectively documents case after case in which people are being persecuted for what they believe and publicly express. Once foundational to our republic, our liberty is now being eroded. Anything deemed politically incorrect is being pushed out of the p ...more
You will get out of this book what you are looking for. If you are looking to be offended you will but if you are looking for someone who satirically offers you the reality of our country you will find that. I agree with his point on there is no safe place for people's personal opinions anymore unless you agree with one side. I support Christianity and it's hard to see it under attack through his stories. I also support religious freedom for all religions and not just Christianity (his chapter o ...more

Paul Revere warned the colonists that "The British are coming!" Now Todd Starnes, reporter of Fox News, has sounded a warning for America. He expressed this warning in this book with several examples that are happening every single day of our lives in our state and the states touching ours, and also in the cities we commute in every day.
From public schools to the military and even our churches God is being seen as unnecessary and has appeared to become dangerous to our society. Todd uses exam
God Less America: Real Stories From the Front Lines of the Attack on Traditional Values by Todd Starnes starts off with a serious but yet humorous introduction telling about the “war of religious liberty”.
The first chapter, “The War on Christianity” seems scary to me when people are being punished for holding harmless Bible studies, saying the name Jesus, or saying Amen. It’s really making me wonder what America will be like for my children and grandchildren in the future. Especially when Jesus
Probably closer to 3.5 stars,Todd Starnes' book was easy to read and interesting, but mixing satire with truth hurt the case the book tried to make, at least for this reader. The satirical parts were fun to read and humorous, but felt myself desiring more of a serious, fully documented throughout, commentary on how the United States is changing, and what Christians are doing to be able to hold our own beliefs in the face of so called "political correctness." Documentation was there, but some ch ...more

Certainly a wake up call who believe in God and have concern for direction is headed. Our country is worth.fighting for! We need attention to the candidates we vote in

God save us and protect Our democracy! We watched the world suffer under a dictatorship in world war II and it's happening to us now as we throw Christ out of the center of our lives.

Bill Bishop
In his typical humorist fashion, Todd examines the war on Christianity (and freedom in general) being waged in America, the land of the free and home of the brave, ironically. A great read filled with insights into what our future has in store for us and succeeding generations. A must-read for all believers.
Brenten Gilbert

Excellent reporting of various civil rights and religious freedom cases across the country tied to a broader perspective. Could've done without some of the humorous interludes and other escapes that didn't quite fit in the flow of the book.

There is certainly a lot going on in the world that doesn't make the headlines. It's puzzling, sad, and informative.
Gabriella Hoffman
Really good book. Todd's book is an enjoyable read. Whether or not you're religious and/or Christian, Starnes outlines the implications of political correctness and its attack of this country's founding principles. I encourage other millennials to read this book.
Jason Williams
Great read!

Mr. Starnes delivers real stories from across America that should be an eye opener for any Christian or non believer. We often think that these things aren't really happening but they are. Thank you for this book sir!
Todd Starnes chronicles numerous examples of how our First Amendment rights are slowly and insidiously being eroded by political correctness, atheists, and completely uninformed and misinformed government bureaucrats. Christianity is being assaulted on all fronts: schools, military, VA hospitals, our cities and towns, and the list goes on. But the book is not all negative. Starnes also gives examples of Christians pushing back against these assaults: Chick Fil A, Hobby Lobby, and other examples ...more
This book was written in a style that's easy to read, however, the information is important for every American to read and heed.

This was such a fabulous book!! To be honest when I initially flipped trough the book I thought it was going to be a prejudicial and biased rant of the author.
I am really glad I was wrong!! The information is not only related in basic terminolgy( NOONE can misunderstand what's written here) but is also backed up with wonderful citations and legitimate sources.
The book relates true stories of incidents across America that concern our very basic tights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happine
Stephanie Seymore
This should be a must read for those who are concerned with the direction our country is heading.
Lots of facts, but not difficult to read; I enjoyed it; made me want to research further.
on the mark analytically and humorous at times

A must-read for every Christian!

A serious message in a fun package. Maybe it will get people to pay attention.
