The Church of Liberalism
I've never been a big fan of Ann Coulter. I've always found her public statements aggressive and deliberately abrasive. But I'm reading her newest book, Godless: The Church of Liberalism with great relish… sometimes accompanied by uncontrollable bursts of laughter.
Coulter's book is (among other things) a great antidote to the Da Vinci Code lunacy. Using logic like a scalpel, she demonstrates how the hostility of small-L liberals towards Christianity stems from the fact that Liberalism (or 'militant Secularism') is itself a religion-whose primary dogma is to deny the existence and/or authority of the God of the Bible.
And she points out (with wit) that because liberals now dominate our courts, schools, government and media, liberalism has become the established religion of our country (Coulter is writing about the USA, but it all applies-in spades!-to Canada).
Coulter-author of the best-sellers, How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must) and Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right-says in this newest book that the 'Church of Liberalism' has its own:
- Saints (JFK).
- Holy documents (Roe v. Wade).
- Martyrs (Soviet spy Alger Hiss).
- Churches (government-monopoly schools, where Christian prayer is banned).
- Clergy (public school teachers and the 'news' media).
- Sacraments (abortion).
- Anthropology (mankind is an accident).
- Cosmology and Creation myth (Darwin's theory of evolution).
Coulter points out the essential truth about Darwinism that liberals dare not confront: that it is bogus science. After a century and a half of examining the fossil record, she notes, evolution's proponents have failed utterly to substantiate its claims or show its usefulness as a theory. Instead, one supposed piece of 'evidence' after another has been exposed as a hoax.
Still, liberals cling devotedly to Darwinism, Coulter says, because they have a desperate need to deny God's existence at any cost, even at the price of rejecting truth-and their priesthood (teachers and media; see above) will not accept, hear, or even allow any challenges to their "official religion."
A couple of delicious quotes:
- If the state has no place in the bedrooms of the nation, can I hide money from the taxman under my mattress?
- Writing of the lunacy of the "exclusionary rule' (by which Supreme Court judges have decreed that if police fail to cross every 't' and dot every 'i', evidence against the accused can be excluded), Coulter says that's like saying that to enforce quiet in an opera house, if a member of the audience coughs, you must shoot the soprano. Or worse, given the effect the exclusionary rule has had—of releasing dangerous criminals into the public, if the soprano coughs you must shoot the audience.
On the other hand, if you're looking for a more serious read, I recommend Charles Colson's newest: LIES that go unchallenged in the popular culture. It's dynamite!
