Senator Jim DeMint says many Christians and their pastors are afraid to state their moral convictions about abortion, homosexuality, pornography, and other issues.
The South Carolina Republican is co-author of a new book titled Why We Whisper – Restoring Our Right To Say It’s Wrong. DeMint blames government, and courts in particular, for turning wrongs into rights and barring religious views from public debate.Government rulings, he argues,have changed American culture.
“Before the 1960s, it was pretty clear that abortion was wrong, that sex outside of marriage was wrong, that unwed birth was wrong, and pornography, homosexuality – all this was considered wrong by the society,” DeMint contends. “But government came in and turned right and wrong upside down.”
DeMint says religious appeals have essentially been barred from public debate.
DeMint adds. “But the government essentially said that religion must be separated from public life.
