God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything by Christopher Hitchens
God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything

Veritas, July 11, 2007

Hitchen's mastery of this topic is apparent on every page. Having assumed I had been the only little boy in church who did not 'believe' it's now, as an adult, so enlightening to realize that I was hardly alone. The absurdity of the fairy tales masked as religion are discussed with great precision. The dastardly means with which religion has effectively interfered with government, medicine, science, sexuality et.al. are far more damaging than I had ever considered. The level of research is truly top drawer. Hitchens is not only a brilliant writer but even more important one of the few intellectuals being read by Americans. He may indeed be my generation's next Gore Vidal.

As the United States turns ever more theocratic, and as every Presidential candidate leaps into debates on "faith" this may be the most important book of the last several years. Highly recommended.
