In my previous post, I mentioned in passing an op-ed by Olasky that asks this question. In this article, Olasky identifies the recent flood of media attention given to Christianity in theaters, books, and talkshows. In each case, he points out that the author builds his case for popular culture paranoia against Christianity by exposing strains of fringe Christianity as mainstream. He discusses “Jesus Camp,” James Rudin’s “The Baptizing of America,” Michelle Goldberg’s “Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism,” and finally, Kevin Phillips’ rant, “American Theocracy: The Peril and Politics of Radical Religion, Oil, and Borrowed Money in the 21st Century.” If you haven’t already read it, you need to click here.

I’m disappointed “One Night With the King” isn’t getting much publicity. I want to recommend evrybody to see it. I know it supports TBN but I think it’s worth it. Hopefully, this goes better with the Jewish people than the ‘Passion’ did.
