Deicide: How Eliminating The Deity Is Destroying America Paperback
August 8, 2016

One of Indiana’s top lobbyists on socially conservative issues is out with a new book that includes some behind-the-scenes details about last year’s explosive battle over Indiana’s religious freedom law.
In his 93-page, self-published book “Deicide,” Indiana Family Institute President Curt Smith argues that removing God from the public square is destroying America. The book features a tattered American flag on the cover and includes a 12-page section called “RFRA Riffraff” devoted to Indiana’s controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
The law set a judicial standard for weighing religious objections to government action, but critics feared it would be used to justify discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the name of religion. The measure thrust Indiana into the center of a national debate over gay rights and religious liberty.
