In past #1 bestsellers, Ann Coulter has revealed how liberals lie about their conservative opponents (Slander). She’s shown how the Left routinely stands with America’s enemies against America herself (Treason). She’s even defended liberalism’s ultimate bogeyman: Joe McCarthy.

But now, Coulter ups the ante once again. In “Godless: The Church of Liberalis”‘, she shows how liberal hostility to traditional religion stems from the fact that liberalism is itself a religion — a godless one. And, she reveals how, thanks to the liberals who dominate our courts, our government bureaucracies, our schools, and our media, liberalism is now the established religion of our country.

Inside the Church of Liberalism

Though liberalism rejects the idea of God and reviles people of faith, argues Coulter, it bears all the attributes of a religion itself. In “Godless”, she throws open the doors of the Church of Liberalism, showing us:

  • its sacraments (abortion)
  • its holy writ (Roe v. Wade)
  • its martyrs (from Soviet spy Alger Hiss to cop-killer Mumia Abu Jamal)
  • its clergy (public school teachers)
  • its churches (government schools, where prayer is prohibited but condoms are free)
  • its doctrine of infallibility (as manifest in the “absolute moral authority” of
  • spokesmen from Cindy Sheehan to Max Cleland)
  • and its cosmology (in which mankind is an inconsequential accident)

Then, of course, there’s the liberal creation myth: Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. For liberals, evolution is the touchstone that separates the enlightened from the benighted. But Coulter neatly reverses the pretense that liberals are rationalists guided by the ideals of free inquiry and the scientific method. She exposes the essential truth about Darwinian evolution that liberals refuse to confront: it is bogus science.

Writing with a keen appreciation for genuine science, Coulter reveals that the so-called “gaps” in the theory of evolution are all there is — Darwinism is nothing but a gap. After 150 years of dedicated searching into the fossil record, evolution’s proponents have failed utterly to substantiate its claims. And a long line of supposed evidence, from the infamous Piltdown Man to the “evolving” peppered moths of England, has been exposed as hoaxes. Still, liberals treat those who question evolution as religious heretics and prohibit students from hearing about real science when it contradicts Darwinism. And these are the people who say they want to keep faith out of the classroom?

Liberals’ absolute devotion to Darwinism, Coulter shows, has nothing to do with evolution’s scientific validity and everything to do with its refusal to admit the possibility of God as a guiding force. They will brook no challenges to the official religion.

Fearlessly confronting the high priests of the Church of Liberalism and ringing with Coulter’s razor-sharp wit, Godless is the most important and riveting book yet from one of today’s most lively and impassioned conservative voices.
