The Criminalization of Christianity: Read This Book before It Becomes Illegal!by Janet Folger
Synopses & Reviews
There is a war going on for the future of our country. Most people know that. What they may not know is that if Christians lose, the result won’t merely be enduring public policy we disagree with—it will be a prison sentence for those who oppose it. We’ve all seen the attack coming. First the Supreme Court said kids can’t pray in school. Then the Ten Commandments were ripped from the classrooms. Now pastors are being removed from their pulpits and put in jail for speaking out against homosexuality (Sweden). And things are only getting worse. How in the world did we get to this place? And why is it that Christians are singled out in this assault on morality? Serving as a wake-up call for America, this book will expose the truth that Christianity is being criminalized—and that we must stand up against it now .
“You Have the Right to Remain Silent…”
Which of the following actually happened in America ? A man is fired for displaying Bible verses in his work space. A judge orders a mother not to teach her daughter anything that could be considered “homophobic.” High school students are trained to roam the halls in search of verbal “offenses” to report to law enforcement officers. A pastor faces a prison sentence for reading from the Bible. All of the above.

[PRINTED UPSIDE DOWN]:
E) All of the above. Here’s where: A) Idaho , B) Colorado, C) West Virginia, and D) Pennsylvania .
[back to normal body copy sized font]:
As a Christian in this country, you may be understandably reluctant to speak out on moral issues like abortion, homosexuality, or pornography. But while we have the right to remain silent, that’s not what God calls us to do.
Because if the world can silence the truth, it will silence the gospel.
Don’t believe it? Read this book.

The Agenda to
Silence the Church
In The Criminalization of Christianity, Janet Folger presents a well documented and frightening road map of how Christianity is slowly becoming against the law in America . The movement to ban public prayer and to ban public displays of the Ten Commandments or of any other Christian symbols was only the beginning. She shows convincingly how the ultimate aim is to make Christianity against the law.
The Criminalization of Christianity explains where the threat is coming from and suggests what we as Christians can do to preserve our rights.
—William J. Murray, Chairman Religious Freedom Coalition
Son of Madalyn Murray O’Hair, plaintiff in a case to remove school prayer
[Start of body copy]:
People in New York are fired from their jobs. Kids in California are suspended from school. Pastors in Sweden are sentenced to prison. Their crime involves nothing more than exercising their religious freedoms.
At first the attacks against Christianity were subtle. The Supreme Court ruled that children can’t pray in school. The Ten Commandments were removed from our classrooms and, later, our courtrooms. Now pastors are being imprisoned for speaking out against homosexuality from their own pulpits.
How in the world did we get to this place in a “free” and civilized society? And how far will it go?
While headlines reveal a gradual undermining of moral values in our society, the truth between those lines silently screams that our very freedom is at stake. Now this provocative book exposes the attack on values for what it is: a pointed war being waged against Christians and the faith they profess.
A frequent guest on such programs as 20/20, Hannity and Colmes, Hardball, and Inside Politics, conservative advocate Janet Folger uncovers the hidden anti-Christian agendas that are driving public policy, key court decisions, public school regulations, political correctness in the media, and modern-day censorship.
The question is, how will you respond? At a time when upholding traditional values has somehow become synonymous with “intolerance,” will you rise up and defend your religious freedoms —before it’s too late?
Story Behind the Book
In 1997, Janet Folger heard a speech by Bob Knight of the Family Research Council in which Knight said that the ultimate goal of the homosexual movement was the criminalization of Christianity. At the time, Janet considered his comment to be an overstatement. But then she watched, listened, and learned. Now pastors in Sweden are being thrown into prison for speaking against homosexuality from their own pulpits. Canadians are being fined tens of thousands of dollars for refusing to print materials they are morally opposed to. Can an intensified assault in the U.S. be far behind?
