Publisher's Summary

Godless is the most explosive book yet from #1 New York Times best-selling author Ann Coulter. In this completely original and thoroughly controversial work, Coulter writes, "Liberals love to boast that they are not 'religious', which is what one would expect to hear from the state-sanctioned religion. Of course liberalism is a religion. It has its own cosmology, its own miracles, its own beliefs in the supernatural, its own churches, its own high priests, its own saints, its own total worldview, and its own explanation of the existence of the universe. In other words, liberalism contains all the attributes of what is generally known as 'religion'."

Very polarized, very repetitive

As a Canadian, it took me a little bit of time to become fully acquainted with all of the terms that the author uses for each political party, and each political point of view. Fortunately, she repeats herself so often, that it sank in within the first hour.

She is rabidly anti-Liberal - which is a fine opinion, and one she is entitled to. I tend to see the idiocy in most of the policies of both major parties, and wonder why the rest of the population doesn't rise up and install new leadership. Oh well, it's tough to change things sometimes.

Either way, she points to some of the more obvious faults of the Liberal world view, and of course says nothing to besmirch the Republicans.

I probably could have gotten through her rabid diatribe, except that she repeats herself far too much. Twice, three times, I probably could have handled... I draw the line at six... on every single topic.

This is the first audiobook I've deleted without listening to the entire thing.

Caution: This book could reduce your IQ.

I pride myself on always taking input from all sources, including those at the very extreme (say Ayn Rand and Naomi Klein as book-ends), but this 'book' is a constant rant based on hyperbole, and introduces facts only when they are convenient.

To make an argument that Chernobyl shouldn't be used by the anti-nuclear 'liberals' as an indication of the dangers of nuclear power because it only killed 4000 instead of 10,000 people is almost hilarious, if I didn't think she was serious. As a person who is pro-nuclear myself, I wouldn't touch that argument with a 10 foot pole.

This book only succeeds at three things:
1. I read this to try and better understand how the far-right thinks, it proves they do not.
2. It makes a strong case for ultra-conservatism being a form of mental illness.
3. The 'liberal religion' that runs the country is a hell of a lot better than Coulter's alternative.

This book didn't make me laugh, it only made me sad for this sort of person.
