A Nation Under God? The ACLU and Religion in American Politics questions the claim of the ACLU that the First Amendment to the Constitution requires the complete cleansing of any religious expression in the American public square. That position, Krannawitter and Palm argue, is not consistent with the principles of the American founding, but derives from early 20th century progressivism and modern liberalism that requires ultimately a reconstituting of the American regime along completely secular lines. A re-examination of the American founding, its theoretical and constitutional principles, allows for limited religious expression without violating the constitutional principle of religious liberty.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Perhaps no organization has done more to pervert the public understanding of civil liberties and the meaning of the Constitution than the ACLU. Krannawitter and Palm, experts in the political philosophy of the American Founding, expose the real agenda of the ACLU. They explain how the ACLU's relentless assaults on public expressions of traditional religious faith are part of its larger political purpose, a purpose wholly inconsistent with those who framed and ratified our Constitution. A Nation Under God? provides Americans with the intellectual and rhetorical tools to refute the ACLU and reclaim the Constitutional government that is rightfully ours. -- William A. Rusher, founding publisher of National Review magazine
If you want to know why school teachers and principals offer thoroughly secularized Christmas programs for fear of ACLU lawsuits, if you don't understand why the ACLU sues local governments over nativity scene displays yet defends the rights of atheists and Satanists, if you wonder why an organization supposedly dedicated to the Bill of Rights has gone to such extremes to redefine it, read A Nation Under God? The ACLU and Religion in American Politics. -- Hugh Hewitt, nationally syndicated radio host and author of In, But Not Of
This book should be viewed as a solid contribution to the debate about the future of church-state jurisprudence in the United States. -- Laura R. Olson, Clemson University
The ACLU has often been at legal and intellectual war with the First Amendment and our Founders' framing of it. That war is joined by Professors Thomas Krannawitter and Daniel Palm who show us where and why the ACLU is wrong. I recommend this book to anyone who wishes to understand the compelling debate about religion and the public square. -- William J. Bennett, former U.S. Secretary of Education, author of The Book of Virtues
