A new book by radio journalist Todd Starnes chronicles approximately 100 instances of political correctness gone wild and religious freedom encroached — what Starnes dubs a “war on Christianity” and traditional values. Titled “Dispatches from Bitter America,” the book’s subtitle — “A Gun Toting, Chicken Eating, Son of a Baptist’s Culture War Stories” — reflects its satirical, humorous and at times irreverent tone. Joni Hannigan, managing editor of the Florida Baptist Witness, said the book “has put in one place a collection of some of the most egregious examples of where religious liberties are being violated.” Starnes’ sense of humor “helps us to laugh at what can be so ridiculous … so we can gain an understanding of the issue without being driven to desperation,” Hannigan said.
