Inhaltsangabe: Silverman holds nothing back, arguing that religion is more than just wrong: it is malevolent and does not deserve our respect. We are fighting a war of ideas and it is the nonbeliever's duty to challenge the dominant narrative of religion. Examining the mentality, methods and issues facing the firebrand atheist, Silverman presents an overwhelming argument for his outspoken brand of 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. People have rights, but beliefs do not. It is not "lslamophobia" to observe dangerous teachings in Islam. Fighting God is a provocative, unapologetic book that takes religion to task and will give inspiration to non-believers and serve as the ultimate answer to apologists.
Rezension: An evangelical manifesto.... For the author, the ultimate arbiter is human rationality, which he holds supreme. Kirkus David Silverman is the bad boy of atheism and we need people like him. There's a tiresome breed of so-called atheists called the "I'm-an-atheist-BUT-heads." They love to put the emphasis on the "but," and go out of their way to emphasize how deeply they respect all faith although, with mawkish regret, they can't actually share it. David Silverman is not of their number, and how refreshing it is to read a book that is not afraid to speak the truth, sans apology. "Richard Dawkins""This is one of the more enjoyable atheist reads I've come across.... I came away from "Fighting God" with some new ideas (which is saying something considering I do this for a living)....[I]f we [atheists] buckle down, work together, and have some fun while we're at it, we can make a real difference in the world." JT Eberhard, "American Atheist Magazine" To get Americans to accept gays as citizens and neighbors, we needed sensible understated gay people, but we also needed flaming queens. As atheists strive to be understood and accepted...well, let's just say David is kind of a flaming queen and I love him. "Fighting God" is David having it and flaunting it. "Penn Jillette, New York Times best selling author of God, No! Signs You May Already Be An Atheist and Other Magical Tales" In all developed Western nations the arc of the moral universe has been bending toward justice because of secular forces. Since the rise of the Religious Right, however, America has been held back. Until now. Thanks in part to firebrand freedom fighters like David Silverman, we atheists are on the march. Silverman's Reason Rally was just the start. His new manifesto will help take our movement to national prominence and into the corridors of power where we can effect real change. "Michael Shermer, Publisher of Skeptic magazine, and author of The Moral Arc: How Science and Reason Lead Humanity Toward Truth, Justice, and Freedom" David Silverman is an uncompromising hardliner with a deeply compassionate heart...his voice is clear, passionate, thoughtful, and funny. "Greta Christina, author of Why Are You Atheists So Angry?" A sometimes funny, always informative look into the mind behind America's frontline of atheism. Dave reminds us that religion is everyone's enemy. "Taslima Nasrin, International Freedom Fighter and author of Shame and Revenge""
