By Ann Coulter
"If a martian landed in the United States and got down to ensure the nation's reputable country faith, he must finish it really is liberalism, whereas Christianity and Judaism are prohibited by way of law.
Many americans are outraged by way of liberal hostility to standard faith. yet as Ann Coulter finds during this, her such a lot explosive ebook but, to concentration exclusively at the Left's assaults on our Judeo-Christian culture is to overlook a bigger element: liberalism is a religion—a godless one.
And it truly is now entrenched because the kingdom faith of this county.
Though liberalism rejects the belief of God and reviles humans of religion, it bears all of the attributes of a faith. In Godless, Coulter throws open the doorways of the Church of Liberalism, displaying us its sacraments (abortion), its holy writ (Roe v. Wade), its martyrs (from Soviet undercover agent Alger Hiss to cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal), its clergy (public college teachers), its church buildings (government faculties, the place prayer is against the law yet condoms are free), its doctrine of infallibility (as show up within the "absolute ethical authority" of spokesmen from Cindy Sheehan to Max Cleland), and its cosmology (in which mankind is an inconsequential accident).
Then, in fact, there is the liberal production delusion: Charles Darwin's concept of evolution.
For liberals, evolution is the touchstone that separates the enlightened from the benighted. yet Coulter well reverses the pretense that liberals are rationalists guided through the beliefs of unfastened inquiry and the medical approach. She exposes the fundamental fact approximately Darwinian evolution that liberals refuse to confront: it is bogus science.
Writing with a prepared appreciation for real technology, Coulter finds that the so-called gaps within the concept of evolution are all there is—Darwinism is not anything yet a spot. After one hundred fifty years of committed looking into the fossil checklist, evolution's proponents have failed completely to confirm its claims. And an extended line of intended facts, from the notorious Piltdown guy to the "evolving" peppered moths of britain, has been uncovered as hoaxes. nonetheless, liberals deal with those that query evolution as non secular heretics and restrict scholars from listening to approximately actual technological know-how whilst it contradicts Darwinism. And those are the folks who say they need to maintain religion out of the classroom?
Liberals' absolute devotion to Darwinism, Coulter indicates, has not anything to do with evolution's clinical validity and every little thing to do with its refusal to confess the opportunity of God as a guiding strength. they are going to brook no demanding situations to the respectable religion.
Fearlessly confronting the excessive clergymen of the Church of Liberalism and ringing with Coulter's razor-sharp wit, Godless is crucial and riveting publication but from considered one of ultra-modern such a lot full of life and impassioned conservative voices.
"Liberals like to boast that they're now not 'religious,' that is what one could anticipate to listen to from the state-sanctioned faith. after all liberalism is a faith. It has its personal cosmology, its personal miracles, its personal ideals within the supernatural, its personal church buildings, its personal excessive monks, its personal saints, its personal overall worldview, and its personal rationalization of the life of the universe. In different phrases, liberalism comprises all of the attributes of what's generally called 'religion.'" —From Godless
