A leftist Christian group is lobbying publisher Regnery to halt its release of Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley’s book on the influence of large technology companies and trying to pressure bookstores not to carry it, saying “white Christian nationalism should not be sold in stores.”Faithful America claims it has 17,000 signatures asking Regnery to halt its planned release of “The Tyranny of Big Tech” by Hawley and another petition with 15,000 signatures asking bookstores not to stock it because the two “helped incite the attack on the U.S. Capitol by spreading lies about the election results.”

The group included radio host Eric Metaxas in its criticism. Metaxas also is published by Regnery.

Faithful America calls itself “the largest online community of Christians putting faith into action for social justice.” It claims it is motivated because “Jesus' message of good news is hijacked by the religious right to serve a hateful political agenda.”

InfluenceWatch.org has dubbed Faithful America a “left-wing Christian activist group,” which opposed the nomination of Amy Coney Barret to the Supreme Court, opposed Hobby Lobby in its successful religious-based Supreme Court challenge to the Obamacare requirement of contraceptive coverage to its employees and lobbies in favor of gun control legislation.

Some Democrats have called for Hawley and fellow Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas to be expelled from the Senate because they raised objections to the Electoral College vote, saying that incited those that breached the Capitol in Washington on Jan. 6.
