The philosophy called "political correctness" thoroughly permeates our modern culture.
And critics warn that the politically correct left-wing is constantly attacking traditional values.
It's reached the point where some people of faith feel too intimidated to speak up for what they believe.
These days, speaking out loudly against things like homosexual marriage or abortion on moral grounds can bring a flood of criticism from the media and secular elites.
South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint and Clemson University Professor J. David Woodard are authors of the new book, Why We Whisper: Restoring Our Right to Say It's Wrong.
In it they show how government imposed secularism and government promotion of behaviors like abortion and homosexuality, have been the primary cause of the erosion of values in America.
It also addressed the intimidation that often causes moral conservatives to whisper.
DeMint appeared on The 700 Club to discuss his new book. Click play to watch the interview now.
