Publisher's Summary

Do you want the greatest political and societal challenges of the day to be addressed with thoughtful, reality-based solutions rather than with cherry-picked quotations from scripture? Do you want to shrink religion - especially fundamentalist religion - to the point that it plays no noticeable role in public life? Do you want right-wing religious leaders to be so unpopular that politicians avoid them rather than pander to them for endorsements? Drawing on the latest social-scientific research on religion, How to Defeat Religion in 10 Easy Steps illustrates specific, actionable steps nonbelievers - and even progressive believers - can take to facilitate fundamentalist religion's decline. With each of its 10 chapters focusing on a specific strategy that research has shown can weaken religion, detailing the how and why, the book covers topics as far ranging as education, welfare, sex, science, capitalism, and Christmas, and offers a wide range of recommendations for individuals, local groups, and national organizations interested in speeding up secularization.

    "A really concise and well written book"

    This book is a summary and a road map for secular activists to have a more humanist and equal society. The language is really basic so it can be offered for even pre high school kids.

    Story
    "Über liberal manifesto"

    The book was ok.

    The author was of the opinion that the end justifies the means when it comes to social engineering. His "wedge" strategy that emulates the creationist movement, is as dishonest as the religious right's attempts to get evolution out of schools. We can't accept that the only was to secularize the country is to try to indoctrinate children in public school (as the right tries to do).
