Bestselling author Ann Coulter’s decision to launch her latest and most explosive book today – 6-6-06, a date some have linked to the “mark of the beast” from the Book of Revelation – is a bad omen for liberals.
“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,” Coulter writes in “Godless: The Church of Liberalism.”
“Godless” is available for purchase as of today, but even before it’s official “street date” of 6-6-06 the book has skyrocketed up bestseller charts, currently No. 5 on Amazon.com’s bestseller list, and No. 2 on the nonfiction chart.
The WND columnist argues that while many Americans are outraged by liberal hostility to traditional religion, to focus solely on the Left’s attacks on Judeo-Christian tradition is to miss a larger point: Liberalism is a religion – a godless one.
“Liberals love to boast that they are not ‘religious,’ which is what one would expect to hear from the state-sanctioned religion,” she writes.
“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.'”
Chapter headings in Coulter’s “Godless” include “On the Seventh Day, God Rested and Liberals Schemed” and “Liberals’ Doctrine of Infallibility: Sobbing Hysterical Women” and “The Holiest Sacrament: Abortion.”
Coulter is the author of four New York Times bestsellers: “How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must),” “Treason,” “Slander,” and “High Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
In her new book, available now through the WND Book Service at a discount of 32 percent, Coulter takes on what she calls 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.
