Godless from the Author: Ann Coulter. "If a martian landed in America and set out to determine the nation's official state religion, he would have to conclude it is liberalism, while Christianity and Judaism are prohibited by law. Many Americans are outraged by liberal hostility to traditional religion. But as Ann Coulter reveals in this, her most explosive book yet, to focus solely on the Left's attacks on our Judeo-Christian tradition is to miss a larger point: liberalism is a religion—a godless one. And it is now entrenched as the state religion of this county. Though liberalism rejects the idea of God and reviles people of faith, it bears all the attributes of a religion. In Godless, Coulter 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. "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.'" —From Godless From the Hardcover edition.

Godless from the Author: Pete Hautman. "Why mess around with Catholicism when you can have your own customized religion?" Fed up with his parents' boring old religion, agnostic-going-on-atheist Jason Bock invents a new god -- the town's water tower. He recruits an unlikely group of worshippers: his snail-farming best friend, Shin, cute-as-a-button (whatever that means) Magda Price, and the violent and unpredictable Henry Stagg. As their religion grows, it takes on a life of its own. While Jason struggles to keep the faith pure, Shin obsesses over writing their bible, and the explosive Henry schemes to make the new faith even more exciting -- and dangerous. When the Chutengodians hold their first ceremony high atop the dome of the water tower, things quickly go from merely dangerous to terrifying and deadly. Jason soon realizes that inventing a religion is a lot easier than controlling it, but control it he must, before his creation destroys both his friends and himself.

Godless In America from the Author: George Ricker. "I spent the most of the first half of my life believing in Christianity and regarding belief in God as an essential component of human existence," George Ricker says. "I've spent the last 30 years trying to understand why I ever thought that way. This book is about how and why that process occurred. It's also about the danger posed to our democratic society by fundamentalist religion." Godless in America is a testimonial about the advantages of life without gods and religions. It's also a no-holds-barred look at some of the problems with both concepts. Written in a style that is conversational, yet provocative, it is a candid assessment of the real culture war being fought in America today: the attack being waged by the Religious Right on the values of personal freedom, democratic government, and the necessity for all Americans to be treated as equals before the law and by their government. At times humorous, at times outrageous, Godless in America treats religion and religious concepts as ideas that should be evaluated with the same standards used to evaluate all other ideas and concepts, not from the privileged position claimed by so many of a religious persuasion.

Godless from the Author: Rachel Summers. Marked by a madman on a killing spree, a young girl relates the sordid tale of a convent possession from the confines of her room in a mental health institution. Why? She was asked by the Devil. She sets the stage in seventeenth century France, where a priest was burned for witchcraft, namely for causing the possession of the local Ursuline sisters. Was this alleged possession and its treatment so different from the experiences of our narrator at the hands of modern psychiatry? Not in the mind of the patient where the witch hunter and the doctor become one. Rachel Summers takes a questionable chapter in the history of the Church and turns it upside-down in the hopes that a different angle will reveal a different past. Part Two of the Mission Maligned series, Godless is a tale of the Other in confrontation with society. Summers tasted this confrontation first-hand inside the Ivory Tower where she received degrees in History, Philosophy, and Religious Studies.

The Godless from the Author: Billy Guajardo. The godless Billy has been awakened by an Angelic Soft White Light. All he can remember, is a fight between several Hellmen sent here from Hell. A mortal who fought an immortal combat between combatants for life and death on the mean streets of earth. Police secure the area, drag dead bodies toward shore one after the other. These Evil Beings slowly vanish before the eyes of the Law in a body of water on a bed of soft wet sand that lies before the faces of many eyes including those of the Law? Billy rises from his home in the ground. Graveyard rats and crows lie dead at his feet. He sees he has return to finish a mission in life after he died. Without knowing why he return to life nor what his mission once was or will be he slowly wakens in a graveyard beneath a blanket of dark? The Devil unleashes an army of Demons from the same graveyard that rats and crows fed on after dead bodies decomposed in the ground. These tiny mouth meat eaters dig down deep into the black earth for a late night snack sometimes. They return to trees and holes in the earth to be close to the dead. A smell of rotting meat waits for them each. Tiny morsels of human flesh that they find irresistible drew them closer with every sniff toward the ground where the dead lay. Dead meat that made their tiny little feet move in joy, both black tiny eyes twinkle and sparkle. He return to Earth to combat those that defy his purpose, his cause and his reason in life. I will raise the dead if I must in a fight to free humans from the wicked, darkness. I will return them to the ground where they belong in hell with a being that they call father of darkness. Scientist know something Evil Lives in a Cave beneath the earth. If I find someone or something that God Dropped from Heaven on Humans. I Hope I will not be alone when I come across a Beast that dared The Heavens. God Help Us in our moment of need! You too human! You were Right Mister! God Be With Us and you? A horde of female angels rise from the dark beneath earth at the end. After a horde of hell's henchmen fail. No human would ever dream this even possible. The dark will summon a demon from hell to earth. A large beast draped in dark fiery smoke, surrounded by hyena besides a constant annoying laughter. An unholy ungodly beast that sat on a throne made of Human Soul, with a smile as big as a prehistoric raptor that waits for you! A dark being with a knack to eat human souls like fat people ate chocolate. A dark beast half man, half fiery creature, rose in a coat of flame, with eyes that sparkle, in black, orange, diamond color. He will stare back from the center of a ball of flames like he woke from bed in it. The only thing close enough to mankind in wings and legs. Wings with barely any skin on them left nor the will to fly. A dark angel with a heart to fight whoever or whatever tried to stop him from his duty to his father down in the dark deep depths in Hell. Ten Black goddesses will rise from an abandoned graveyard? The god of the dark will unleash these beauties on Mankind. A fault that Men will come to remember besides recognize after a look into the eyes of never ending yet fatal beauty. They will come with a name, rank and serial number like prisoners on earth. These will come from Hell. From a long, lost, forgotten prison in a world of evil.Women angels with beauty to die for and most men will! The only difference these beast of burden we’re given names by the Devil, Himself. Who commanded them after his Demon Warship Failed one to many times. He will wake them from a deep slumber that they fell into Millenniums Ago. They will be commanded to search and destroy Guardians? I mean Earth Guardians. Like Billy Seals! He will raise a guardianship full filled with guardians to combat an army of henchmen with his dying or last breath he claims?

That Godless Court from the Author: Ronald Bruce Flowers. The religion clauses of the First Amendment, which seem simple and clear, have been and continue to be controversial in their application. Church-state issues have never been more complex, controversial, and divisive than they are today. In this helpful and instructive book, Ronald B. Flowers explains clearly and concisely the intricacies and implications of Supreme Court decisions in the volatile area of church-state relations. This is an ideal primer for those Americans who have listened to the debates about what the Supreme Court has and has not said about the relationship between church and state, and where the boundaries between the two have been eroded. It is also ideal for use in the classroom, specifically in undergraduate courses in religion and the court, introductions to U.S. constitutional law, constitutional law and politics, and the Supreme Court. The book is also a helpful tool for pastors, clarifying contemporary church-state issues that impact their churches and parishioners directly and indirectly.

LENIN GOD OF THE GODLESS LENIN GOD OF THE GODLESS CHAPTER I LITTLE VLADIMIR ULYANOV was sitting very still, thought fully watching his mother s preparations. Maria Alexandrovna herself, pale and spiritless, was helping the servant-girl to lay the table. For it was Saturday, when her husband s friends would descend upon them, and she had grown more and more to dislike their weekly assemblies. Her children, except Vladimir, shared her feelings. The girls were tidying up the drawing-room and comparing notes on their father s guests. The elder boy, as usual, had slipped out of the house, cursing them for a gang of brigands. Only Vladimir looked forward to the evening with impatience. At last Ulyanov came into the room. He was a grizzled, broad-shouldered man, with the narrow Mongolian eyes of his younger son, and he knew that he looked a man of substance in his dark-blue frock coat with gold buttons, especially when the red and white ribbon on his chest held the cross of St. Vladimir, which conferred an authority of its own. He sat down in an armchair, drew up a small table, and set out the chess-men, in readiness for a game with Doctor Titov. The Doctor always captured the imagination of Vladimir. The lad would have liked to see him go swimming. No mat ter how deep the water might be, the man would not sink. He would bob up and down like a fishing-float on the surface. A round, bulky man was Doctor Titov. The father said nothing to Maria Alexandrovna. He knew very well that she did not like his guests. On the other hand, he did not want to spoil his pleasures by a quarrel with his wife. 4 LENIN But Madame Ulyanova began the conversation at once. quot My dear, quot she said, quot we would both be better off if you gave up those friends of yours. What good can it do you to have that drunken priest. Father Makary, with his rusty old cassock, or Doctor Titov, or the School Inspector, Peter Petro vitch Shustov That old ramrod he s good for neither God nor Devil 5 Her husband twisted uneasily in his chair and began to wipe his perspiring forehead with a red handkerchief. quot We ve been friends for a long time, quot he muttered. quot Be sides, they have very good connections. They can help one along in life. The great ones of the earth have ears, you know, and when my friends whisper a good word about me. . . . quot U O Lord quot groaned his wife. quot You and your good word You remind me of Tiapkin-Lapkin in Gogol s Inspector. He did that too. He took care to ask the Inspector, when he re turned to Petersburg, to tell the Ministers where Tiapkin-Lapkin was living quot She began to laugh, silently and with bitterness. quot That s no sort of a comparison, my dear, quot he said reproach fully. quot Yes, it is It s exactly the same, quot rejoined his wife. quot You re making a fool of yourself, that s all. Why don t you invite some people who really count, young people or men of in tellect For instance, Dr. Dokhturov, or that school master Nilov, or that marvelous monk, the preacher, Brother Alexis I met them at Madame Vlasova s. They have intelligence. They re worth paying attention to quot quot God forbid quot hissed Ulyanov. There was some fear in his voice, and he waved his hands helplessly. quot Those fellows are dangerous types. They are, well . . . political agitators. quot quot Political agitators quot asked Maria Alexandrovna. quot What do you mean by that quot quot Nothing very good, quot he replied in an impressive whisper. quot The Police Commissioner warned me about them...

Going Godless from the Author: J. K. Fausnight. If you have recently joined the growing ranks of nonbelievers, you may be wondering where to go next. What do you leave behind when you abandon religion? Is atheism and agnosticism a spiritual dead-end? How do you find meaning, morality, and spiritual satisfaction in a world without God? Going Godless takes a look at spirituality redefined within the material world around us, the world we know exists. Whether you are atheist, agnostic, deist, or simply don't subscribe to any existing religion, you are faced with going through life without a rule book handed down by God. Going Godless does not provide you with a rule book, but rather an important perspective for writing your own.
