Publisher's Summary

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 audiobook 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.

Very polarized, very repetitive

As a Canadian, it took me a little bit of time to become fully acquainted with all of the terms that the author uses for each political party, and each political point of view. Fortunately, she repeats herself so often, that it sank in within the first hour.

She is rabidly anti-Liberal - which is a fine opinion, and one she is entitled to. I tend to see the idiocy in most of the policies of both major parties, and wonder why the rest of the population doesn't rise up and install new leadership. Oh well, it's tough to change things sometimes.

Either way, she points to some of the more obvious faults of the Liberal world view, and of course says nothing to besmirch the Republicans.

I probably could have gotten through her rabid diatribe, except that she repeats herself far too much. Twice, three times, I probably could have handled... I draw the line at six... on every single topic.

This is the first audiobook I've deleted without listening to the entire thing.

Godless (Ann Coulter)

Start listening at any random place and it is side-slapping hilariously funny. For about 10 minutes. After 10 more you realize she has only one note. By the time half an hour has gone by you'd rather take the Chinese water torture. Her rhetoric is built in classic demagogue architectural style: exaggerate ad nauseum a few very carefully selected and polished anecdotes that support your ideology, and avoid letting on the slightest hint that there are as many or more anecdotes that refute it.

Somebodies ears are burning

Wow! I got this to keep me awake as I drove through the night. I chose a controversial book for that purpose. And it worked

I didn't think I would laugh so hard. She makes very good arguments for her positions with scalding little jabs that fit so well even liberals have to swallow a smile. Both Clintons had to put aloe vera on their ears.

This is ultra conservative in nature and a good read from that point of view. Political correctness is not one of her virtues - I found that refreshing.

Caution: This book could reduce your IQ.

I pride myself on always taking input from all sources, including those at the very extreme (say Ayn Rand and Naomi Klein as book-ends), but this 'book' is a constant rant based on hyperbole, and introduces facts only when they are convenient.

To make an argument that Chernobyl shouldn't be used by the anti-nuclear 'liberals' as an indication of the dangers of nuclear power because it only killed 4000 instead of 10,000 people is almost hilarious, if I didn't think she was serious. As a person who is pro-nuclear myself, I wouldn't touch that argument with a 10 foot pole.

This book only succeeds at three things:
1. I read this to try and better understand how the far-right thinks, it proves they do not.
2. It makes a strong case for ultra-conservatism being a form of mental illness.
3. The 'liberal religion' that runs the country is a hell of a lot better than Coulter's alternative.

This book didn't make me laugh, it only made me sad for this sort of person.

8/10ths of a good book

As the closing piece on the NBC Nightly News, Brian Williams intoned solemnly that while he respected the right of free speech for all, Ann Coulter, in her new book, had “gone over the line” in questioning the motives of the New Jersey 9/11 widows who publicly condemned the government’s failure to detect and stop the 9/11 attacks. I decided to download this book to see what Mr. Williams choler was all about. It gave me a chuckle find that Ms. Coulter suggested that the liberal religion made saints out of people who had sustained a significant loss and then employed them as “human shields” to propound liberal dogma. Their “moral authority” made them invulnerable to dispute or question. Brian Williams and Hillary Clinton responded exactly as Ms. Coulter predicted. They did not dispute the accuracy of her proposition but condemned the profanity inherent in her raising questions about these icons.

The fundamental premise of this book is that flakey liberals are as blindly committed to liberal dogma as flakey fundamentalists are to theirs. Ms. Coulter is outrageous in the way she presents her ideas but so is James Carville. Both have ideas that are worth serious consideration. Outrageous is how they get noticed.

The book was thought provoking and entertaining until she got to the final section on evolution. Her point there is that the concept of spontaneous mutation and natural selection, while compelling, is not coherent enough to be taken as fact. This point is conceded by most thinking people today. She takes the final two hours of the recording to beat this issue to death. My advice: listen to and enjoy Ms. Coulter’s outrageous, entertaining and, yes, thought provoking banter until she gets about 10 minutes into her discussion of evolution. By that time she will have said all she has to say on the subject. Turn off the machine and move on to another audio book.

Sometimes the truth hurts

She nails it. A great listen with very thought-provoking assertions
Ann Coulter has a knack for speaking the truth... even when its hard to swallow. Many people want to compare her to Michael Moore or Al Franken; here's the difference she backs up her allegations with cold hard facts...

Demagogic and Disappointing

Having just finished reading Demonic I was looking forward to Coulter's razor logic and irrefutable arguments in this volume. Although elements were there, Coulter was far less disciplined in her arguments in this book.
Many of the elements which Coulter attributed to "Liberals" were, in fact, truthful. However, making blanket statements about members and beliefs of a political party can be hazardous. Coulter ignored those hazards and plunged ahead with the same mindless demagoguery that Liberals so often use when attempting to denigrate members of the Tea Party and other Center Right and Right Wing groups. She selected in many cases the most extreme views and applied them without discrimination to all Liberals, a thing which is as unsustainable as applying the extremist philosophies of some right wing individuals to all of us on the right. It just doesn't cut it.
When discussing Darwinian theory Coulter is excellent, but, again, she tends to extremes which make much of what she is saying less palatable.
Demonic was a superbly written book which could well become a textbook of the right and righteous. This book was a diatribe written more in anger than logical thought. This style of writing and talking has driven me away from listening to many right wing commentators, Coulter among them, as they tend to make representations which do not stand up to logical argument. Demonic on the other hand is a wonderful source for argument and historic reference. That is what I seek, not blind fanaticism that convinces only members of the choir. Hopefully, Demonic will be the forerunner of the future style of Coulter's writing and talking. She is unquestionably brilliant and well versed. She needs to stick to facts and avoid emotionalism which drives a good deal of Godless.

Interesting read

WOW ! that is all I have to say. 12 hours of the most deranged vitriolic utterances one will ever hear. Another case of a vehemently devout religious type using the good intentions of religion to seperate and divide. On the other hand I listened intently to the whole thing 12 hours worth shaking my head the entire time. She is a talented writer and every progressive thinking person out there should listen to this entertaining book no matter how much you'll disagree with what she says. The difference between us liberals and the neo-con's is that we will always stand up for thier rights to personally attack those they disagree with.

What a gutsy person! Ann courageously stands up to the left, and shouts those unspoken truths to their faces. And the worst replies she gets is the whines and tears from surprised liberals who can’t imagine why anyone would target poor grieving (and EXTREMELY RICH) widows! I am still waiting to hear what they say when they read what she wrote on the public school system (indoctrination of our children into the state religion), the teachers (their lies about not being paid enough when they make more money than most other professions, which we should understand, considering the ridiculous college courses they have to take), and the Darwin Theory of evolution (refuted time and time again, but yet, our kids are fed in schools it is *THE ONLY* explanation of why we are here)...but I won't hold my breath.

She proves her point

Apart from all the hype and political brouhaha, she has a point and she has backed it up with a tremendous amount of fact and detail that is hard to pass off as just right-wing propaganda.

This is a very informative book that takes a hard look at post-modern/liberal theory -- that on the surface is so easy to accept, but in actuality is like poison in the system!
