Letter to a Christian Nation

February 11, 2008 at 4:19 am (Rants)

Every person on the face of the earth needs to read “Letter to a Christian Nation” immediately. I wish I could post the entire book on this blog, because the author, Sam Harris, has perfectly articulated every thought and feeling I have had over the past few years, namely that organized religion poses the greatest single threat to our society today.  Among many of the excellent and brilliant points he makes in the book is the fact that Christians do not seem to have any interest in alleviating human suffering by doing things like, say, pushing for stem cell research or distributing condoms to AIDS-plagued societies, but rather they prolong human suffering by clinging to fantasies like souls living in a petri dish and God caring about who we sleep with. His book is so awesome I can’t possibly synopsize it here. Read his book and you will be a better person.
