Many in the faith community have been warning for decades that there is a full-on war waging against Christianity in our culture.
As the role that faith has played in the public sphere fades away, our nation is clearly swirling into moral and spiritual crisis
There are many reasons for Christians to criticize President Donald Trump, but it is pretty profound at this juncture in history to have a POTUS to signal recognition of this war on our faith.
This week, President Trump tweeted a quote from Dr. Taylor Marshall just hours after the author was interviewed on One America News about the current crisis facing our nation.
“Dr. Taylor Marshall, author. ‘There Is A War On Christianity’. @OANN,” Trump tweeted.
LifeSiteNews notes that “Marshall had pointed out that the current attacks on symbols and statues are finally not only about a presidential candidate, but about attacking our Christian civilization.”

In the interview, Marshall had told OAN’s Jack Posobiec that, “with these riots and these hate groups” it is not just about our Founding Fathers or other historical figures, but “they are now attacking Christian symbols, signs, crosses, statues.”
“We are really in a war over the heart of civilization,” he explained, and that this civilization had sprung “from Christianity.”
“The goodness that we have experienced,” Marshall continued, “in our nation emerged from a Christian culture. And these atheists, these socialists, these Marxists, they know that and they are attacking it.”
“They are taking the debates and controversies of our time and they are imputing them into these men who come before us so that they can erase Christian memory, erase Christian civilization,” the author of several books explained.
“They are actually going after what we believe in our hearts,” he added.
Marshall also endorsed the President’s bid for re-election, noting that despite Trump’s recent dip in the polls, “I think people are realizing that ‘I don’t want to live in an America that is chaotic. I want the rule of law.’”
“Trump is not perfect,” he admitted, adding that “none of us is perfect,” not previous Presidents or Catholic saints targeted by protesters, but that “we can work together, not to burn everything that’s America to the ground. We can simply fix what is wrong and cherish what has been good and wholesome in our history.”
LifeSite also notes that:
Trump’s endorsement of Dr. Marshall’s interview is the second time in the recent past that the President is aligning himself with those voices among Catholics that, though in a minority, are determined to fight for the authentic and true Catholic Faith within the Church and for a Christian civilization at large, against the globalist and Marxist social engineers who are out to wage a “war against Christianity,” in the words of Dr. Marshall.
He certainly hasn’t just signaled support for Catholics, but for Christians as a whole who value the founding philosophy of our nation and a basic understanding of right and wrong. This was put on display during his Independence Day comments at Mt. Rushmore on Friday, in which he stated plainly, echoing the groundbreaking words of the Declaration of Independence, that:
Our Founders launched not only a revolution in government, but a revolution in the pursuit of justice, equality, liberty, and prosperity. No nation has done more to advance the human condition than the United States of America. And no people have done more to promote human progress than the citizens of our great nation.
It was all made possible by the courage of 56 patriots who gathered in Philadelphia 244 years ago and signed the Declaration of Independence. They enshrined a divine truth that changed the world forever when they said: “…all men are created equal.”
These immortal words set in motion the unstoppable march of freedom. Our Founders boldly declared that we are all endowed with the same divine rights — given [to] us by our Creator in Heaven. And that which God has given us, we will allow no one, ever, to take away — ever.
Without a foundation in biblical morality, there is no justice, liberty, or equality. If our faith is under attack, the very principles on which our nation was founded are under attack too.
