In the United States of America, a nation overwhelmingly Christian, literally any sign of Christmas in public can now lead to complaints, litigation, angry protests, threats, and bruised feelings. Every year the limitations get tighter and tighter and spread to more and more communities, far from the big liberal cities. And as Fox News Channel’s John Gibson reveals in thisIn the United States of America, a nation overwhelmingly Christian, literally any sign of Christmas in public can now lead to complaints, litigation, angry protests, threats, and bruised feelings. Every year the limitations get tighter and tighter and spread to more and more communities, far from the big liberal cities. And as Fox News Channel’s John Gibson reveals in this shocking exposé, it’s not happening by accident. Secular liberals say they’re just protecting the constitutional rights of non-Christians who don’t want to see or hear about Christmas. But what about the constitutional rights of millions of Americans who simply want to celebrate their traditional holiday—without insulting anyone else but also without having to hide behind closed doors? Gibson unveils the coordinated work of American Civil Liberties Union lawyers, professional atheists, and Christian haters who have taken the war on Christmas to your front door. The War on Christmas is heating up, maybe in your own town. Don’t let it catch you unprepared. BACKCOVER: “Mr. Gibson deserves great credit for calling attention to a growing problem.” —Michael J. Gaynor, Theconservativevoice.com “John Gibson, gutsy anchor of Fox News’ The Big Story, is to be commended for titling his latest book The War on Christmas, for as Gibson shows, the attempt by certain groups to prohibit Christmas displays is not simply an academic difference . . . but a desire by anti- Christians, to stamp out of society any reference to Christmas.” —Rabbi Aryeh Spero, Human Events Online “Gibson’s book is an interesting read for all of us who are concerned that our rights to practice our faith in daily life are being eroded to such an extent that we must hide behind closed doors to celebrate a traditional holiday.” —Stephen Strang


The War on Christmas: How the Liberal Plot to Ban the Sacred Christian Holiday Is Worse Than You Thought Reviews

  • Brian Ridge

    Look, I'm sure that we all can agree that a lot of the stuff in this book is quite silly. But a handful of cases in a country of 300 million people does not a war make, and the author should be ashamed of such an alarmist and exaggerated book on the topic. It's not a war; what it is is a case of some civic and educational leaders around the country working towards the noble goal of inclusion and diversity but doing so in a clumsy or overzealous manner. It's hardly the start of a new religious wa [...]

    Why am I not surprised that this guy is (or was) a Faux News anchor?

  • David Leemon

    I'm giving this guy two stars because he is able to put coherent sentences together. But otherwise, Bah humbug!

  • Claire

    I tried to widen my horizons like my friends tell me to do, but I couldn't find anything to agree with in Gibson's text, except okay, maybe there has been a secularization plot. It could have had something to do with Stalin. There may have been notes in the history books of faith being the opium of the people.Tell the Persian people at the Wawa down the street that the United States of America is an overwhelmingly Christian nation. I'm sure the Indian lady I was speaking with at the Exton Square [...]

  • Shea Mastison

    The whole premise of the book requires that you buy into the notion of a persecuted majority; a majority that is capable of building dozens of $100 million dollar megachurches--but entirely incapable of defending the expression of public sentiment for a single holiday. Gibson cherry-picks about six or seven different anecdotes he considers to be evidence of a widespread, liberal conspiracy against Christmas; and just extrapolates the hell out of the data to support his inane and illogical conclu [...]

  • Mike Kowalczyk

    A largely overlooked book, the author discusses modern society's push towards the ever-growing desecularization of public venue, with the emphasis placed heavily on Christmas. Among the discussion includes the removal of Nativity sets, Christmas trees, lights, signs, and titles such as "Christmas Season" from public spaces such as parks, squares, malls, and schools. He also confronts the growing hypocracy that has risen from this trend, namely the idea that other religions aren't being equally t [...]

  • Atchisson

    I'll be honest, I see this as just a symptom of a bigger disease. My card-carrying ACLU member friends will never admit it, but there is an agenda to push God and all things Christian out of the public square. John Gibson just scratches the surface with a smattering of examples centered around Christmas. An important read in as much as it is a big piece of the puzzle.

  • Nicki

    This is a great read (even for a bleeding-heart liberal like me). It is very thought-provoking, and caused me to question why Christian holidays are pushed into the closet while other religious and nonreligious holidays gain more recognition.

  • Bridget

    A bit repetitive, but the overall premise of being sensitive to every other religion except Christianity rings true.

  • Mr. Pe Mr. Pe

    this is a great book and i recommend it to everyone

  • Amy Sawyer

    Last two chapters were my favorite since they tended to tie the whole book together. Would love to see a follow up as to progress on one side or the other.
