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.

This is a fascinating history of atheist activism in the United States by someone at its forefront.
Although, in my 30 years of atheism, I have never been Silverman's "firebrand" type of atheist ("loud and proud"), never sure that pride is actually a good thing, and never wanting to be the "dick" that Silverman says comes with being a firebrand, I have to say he makes a compelling case for that sort of activism.
It seems clear to me that the promotion and growth of atheism among freethinking people is a great thing for society. I find Silverman's description of the effectiveness of his brand of activism with American Atheists in this regard to be convincing. He backs this up with facts and figures from what sound like more or less scientific studies.
Although, I haven't yet had a chance to check any of those sources. If indeed they can be taken at face value, then I think I love American Atheists.
