I'm sure this isn't the first thread about her. To sum up my feelings about Ann Coulter...I feel the world was a much better place during the time her jaw was wired shut (even though she could still write, unfortunately). And I don't even consider myself a liberal! Here's an excerpt from the back cover of "Godless: The Church of Liberalism": 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). And an excerpt from the book itself: "Liberals love to boast that they are not 'religious,' which is what one would expect to hear from the state-sanctioned religion. 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.'" Unfortunately, as I don't want Ann Coulter to earn any money from me, I haven't purchased this book or any of her others, even though I would be very interested to read them. So, I'd love to hear from someone who has read this book and agrees with (and can possibly offer further evidence and/or reasoning to support) the claim that "liberalism" can be considered a religion, because I for one think this has to be one of the stupidest things I've ever heard (and I've heard some pretty stupid things).
