Publisher's Summary

Fighting God is a firebrand manifesto from one of the most recognizable faces of atheism. In his audiobook, Silverman - a walking, talking atheist billboard known for his appearances on Fox News - discusses the effectiveness, ethics, and impact of the in-your-face-atheist who refuses to be silent.
Silverman argues that religion is more than just wrong: it is malevolent and does not deserve our respect. It is our duty to be outspoken and do what we can to bring religion down. Examining the mentality, methods, and issues facing the firebrand atheist, Silverman presents an overwhelming argument for firebrand atheism and reveals:

All religion is cafeteria religion and all agnostics are atheists.
American society grants religion a privileged status, despite the intentions of the Founding Fathers.
Christian politicians have adversely (and un-Constitutionally) affected our society with regard to science, health, women's rights, and gay rights.
The notion of "atheist Jews" is a lie forced on us by religion.
It is not "Islamophobia" to observe dangerous teachings and disproportionate violence in Islam.
Atheists are slowly but surely winning the battle.

Fighting God is a provocative, unapologetic audiobook that takes religion to task and will give inspiration to non-believers and serve as the ultimate answer to apologists.

Eloquent as Always

I've been a fan of David's since he became the director for American Atheists, so I already had a good idea of what I was going to get when I preordered Fighting God. It was everything I'd hoped for and more. Many authors don't narrate their books well, David passionately read his work.

If you were looking for an autobiography, this isn't what you wanted. Appropriately, this is a rant and a call for change. Every American deserves their constitutional rights-every American. Those rights protect theists-better in many ways-than they protect atheists. I wouldn't necessarily recommend this to give to theist family members, but I would recommend it for local atheist group leaders like me.

Fighting in vain

I did agree with a great deal of what he was saying. He sounded just as dogmatic as some overzealous religious preachers. "I am an atheist". But, being so, doesn't give me the right to provoke non atheist in the name of trying to free them from false doctrine and religious slavery. That's not my job to be a "atheist missionary". Religion is a very complex thing, not to mention as old as man himself . Its very personal and people give there luves, or lose their lives because of this. Although I definitely see the manipulation in organized religion and their political affiliation. He lost me when he said that we carry no responsibility for the violence followed by Islamic people for drawing a picture of Muhammad. If you know there are fanatics who would slaughter innocent people for drawing an image. Why draw it? What's the point? Are you trying to provoke them. Yes you have the right to draw anything you want. But, why that? common sense along with exercising your freedom is imperative. We have a right, yes. But before you exercise that right. Ask yourself "is it necessary?" "Will it offend anyone?". I enjoyed most of the book. But, the author was self absorbed and arrogant. He's actually made atheism into a dogmatic religion.
