FOX News commentator and Charisma House author mobilizes culture warriors for religious liberty in U.S.

GodLessAmericaBusLifeWayFOX News Radio host Todd Starnes visited top stores, including Christian retailers, on his 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 included book signings at stores including LifeWay Christian Stores in Missouri, Georgia and California, and Christian Supply in Spartanburg, S.C. God Less America sold out at a number of stores.

On the tour, Starnes hosted 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. Among the issues he cites are the White House waging an all-out assault on religious liberty and public schools indoctrinating children with the gospel of secularism.

“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.”

LifeWay’s Bridgeton, Missouri, store hosted Starnes for the second time.
“The people that came loved him,” said Francine Evans, manager of the Bridgeton store. “They went wild that he was here.”

Local media covered the tour in various cities with print and radio reports. Supporters showed up in droves to meet Starnes and voice their concerns about waning religious liberties. Fans also took to social media with tour pictures and encouraging words via #godlessamerica and @toddstarnes. —Burns
