I have written a book called Does America Hate God? Faith Under Fire. I posed a question to an interesting cross section of people. I asked the question, does America hate God? Following are some of the initial responses.
“… America has forgotten the values it was created on. It has been distorted and manipulated into what certain groups want it to be. We forget that by freedom of religion, it’s that we are not forced into believing one versus another, not the absence of religion or God. America does not hate God, but it is definitely afraid to stand up for Him. Tiptoeing around Him, not having Him in schools or government places, that’s not freedom. And the media certainly does not help. They pick and chose what chaos to report and what not to… And there is so much more…” Dana Tiegen — a mother of three from Marion, Iowa
“No one hates God, they simply cannot see what God has done for them and America doesn’t really differ from other countries, as far as I’m concerned. People everywhere are trying to rely on someone or blame him for their losses. It is often said that Americans are not that religious but through my journey, the people I’ve met, they are as religious as they are kind…” Violet Hejazi — a young Christian Syrian refugee who has settled in Scotland via the UAE, Yemen and Egypt.
“No America doesn’t hate God. That’s just the nonsense that Fox News is peddling. God IS still in public school, our military, etc…” Tamatha Cho — a stay-at-home mother of five and wife of a retired USMC officer from Maryland.
“I first read that as “Does God hate America?” And then I read some responses. No, either way. I don’t think Americans hate God. Unfortunately there are so many Christians who, trying to be tolerant, allow other voices to dominate. Between the agnostics and non-Christians, one might think we are a secular society without regard for God and biblical values. There is still a large Christian sector in this country and we love God. Most of us are praying daily for God to save us and for our leaders to be inspired and guided by God.” Sue MacKinnon — a retired Army nurse from Jacksonville, Florida.
