GodLessAmericaBusLifeWay-webFOX News Radio host Todd Starnes has embarked on a nationwide book tour, making his way from city to city in a bus adorned with an advertisement for the newly released God Less America: Real Stories From the Front Lines of the Attack on Traditional Values (FrontLine/Charisma House).

The bus tour includes highly anticipated book signings at major retail bookstores such as Lifeway Christian Stores in Missouri, Georgia and California, and Barnes and Noble locations in Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee. On the tour Starnes will also host speaking engagements and town hall events at various city centers in North Carolina, Washington, D.C., and California.

Starnes’ book raises the alarm about the war on Christian and traditional values in America. He uses recent news stories and compelling interviews with today’s top conservative leaders to bring to light the brewing storm in the United States. He says the White House is waging an all-out assault on religious liberty, public schools are indoctrinating children with the gospel of secularism and Hollywood is spewing toxins into our homes.

“Together we are a mighty force,” Starnes said. “We need men and women willing to stand firm in the faith. We need patriots willing to defend religious liberty. They may spy on our phone lines. They may throw us in jail. They may take away our shops and bakeries. They may demand to know the content of our prayers. But we will not be bullied. We will not be intimidated. We will not be silenced.”

Local media coverage has welcomed the tour bus into various cities with print and radio coverage of the book signing events. Supporters of the movement also showed up in droves to meet Starnes and voice their concerns about waning religious liberties in their hometowns. Supporters have also taken to social media with bus tour pictures and encouraging words via #godlessamerica and @toddstarnes. Consequently God Less America has sold out at various events as the tour continues to gain momentum.
