Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) gave a fiery speech at the National Conservative Conference where he confidently told attendees, “without the Bible, there is no modernity. Without the Bible, there is no America.”
As constitutional rights are chipped away at by Democrats, the senator started his speech with a reminder that people’s rights come “not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.”
“We are a revolutionary nation precisely because we are the heirs of the revolution of the Bible,” Hawley added.
He criticized liberals for destroying every connection between American culture and the Bible. Hawley suspects that the left is trying to “remake” the country to be consumed by their progressive agenda, which would destroy “the inheritance of the Bible.”
“What they particularly dislike about America is our dependence on biblical teaching and tradition. What they particularly dislike about our culture is the Bible. And now they want to break that influence for good,” Hawley continued.

The Republican said that the true source of Americans’ rights and liberties stems from the Bible. “It is the true source of what we know of the rights of man. It is the true source of the liberties we cherish. It has taught us what we know of dignity and equality. The Bible has made us who we are, and it is critical to our future,” he said.
The National Conservative Conference has been happening for three years and hopes to gather those who “understand that the past and future of conservatism are inextricably tied to the idea of the nation.”
The conference had some big names attend, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
As masculinity is increasingly being demonized by the left, Hawley pointed it out in his speech. He slammed pornography, video games, and leftist policies for contributing to those who “understand that the past and future of conservatism are inextricably tied to the idea of the nation.”
