Wife of Rocker Ted Nugent Chimes in on My New Book and the Battle Against Cancel Culture

by | Jun 30, 2021 | Blogs, The Strang Report

I was so thrilled recently when Shemane Nugent—wife of legendary rock ‘n’ roll singer Ted Nugent—reached out to me out of the blue to talk about my new book, God and Cancel Culture. Shemane describes herself as a “Christian living in a rock ‘n’ roll world,” and I was pleased to be able to talk to her about the book, which is due out on Sept. 7.

Shemane, who says she is often criticized by believers because of her marriage to a rock star, is like many other Christians, including me: She has a deep concern about the turn our culture in America has taken. She too is concerned about the issues confronting us like transgenderism, racism and abortion.

Shemane must have heard about my new book, so I was more than happy to speak with her about God and Cancel Culture on her video podcast on Facebook,

The first thing she asked were my thoughts on why so many Christian conservatives are being canceled these days.

“Well, it’s where our culture is going,” I told her. “Really, they’re trying to cancel Christianity, and I make that point in the book.

“Ultimately, this is about good and evil. In a way, they’ve been trying to cancel Christianity throughout the centuries. However, no one has been successful, and they won’t be successful now.

“With secularism, you can be any gender you want,” I told her. “You can abort babies. Anything that makes you feel good, whether its alcohol or marijuana or whatever, it’s just anything goes. The only thing holding it back are people who believe biblical values that think there is something higher.

“They want to get us out of the public square, and this has been happening for years,” I said. “I’m a book publisher, and it’s hard to get the secular outlets to carry a book on the Holy Spirit or communing with Jesus. They will carry Christian books, but recently even some Christian books have been banned because they are not politically correct. They are eliminating people one by one, but there is no big controversy about that in today’s culture.”

Shemane told me that the “cancel culturists” are “chipping away at our freedoms, like many we have promised in the First Amendment of our Constitution. And now they’re going after freedoms guaranteed in the Second Amendment. It’s undeniable, for sure.”

But what I explained to Shemane and her listeners was that, while many Christians are going along with these liberal, leftist mandates, we still have a small, brave group of believers who will stand up to government officials. This includes church pastors in California such as Ché Ahn and Greg Fairrington, whom I recently interviewed on the Strang Report podcast.

I deal with these different things in chapters in my book, and my purpose is to try to wake up the church. We still have rights, and we have at least 30% of the population who are pretty serious Christians and another segment that is friendly to Christians. With Jesus Christ on our side, all believers need to do what we can to stand up to the cancel culture.

Shemane is doing her part with her video podcasts, and we’re doing our part here at Charisma Media.
