‘Ignore the Politically Correct Scrooges’: Sarah Palin Tells Christians to Stand Up for Their Faith Against Atheist Activists

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is offering up some advice to Christians who might feel intimidated or even bullied by atheists about expressing their beliefs.

During an interview with CBN’s David Brody Monday, Palin defended the rights of non-believers to express their opinions, but said Christians need to be reminded that they too have the right to be heard.

“See atheists have a right in America to stand up and express their views,” Palin said. “Well, faith-filled people also need to be reminded they have the right also to have their voice heard.”

Palin said her new book, “Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas,” provides some tips for Christians who want to protect their faith.

“This book gives legal and cultural steps that can be taken, advice that can be accepted, to have their voice heard and not to feel intimidated by a minority of people who would want to take away our right to express our faith,” she told Brody.

Palin added, “It’s very important that we do that because that inherent link between faith and freedom, it’s fragile at this point in America.”

Throughout the book, Palin addresses the “War on Christmas” debate. Mixing personal and family stories and recipes with current social politics, the book encourages Christians to come together to “unite in defense” of religious convictions and to “ignore the politically correct Scrooges seeking to take Christ out of Christmas.”
