While Michael and I were at B&N tonight I saw something that made me very sad. Ann Coulter’s new book.
From the jacket:
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.
She goes on to call evolution bogus science. This from a person with no science background.
Seriously. It’s just depressing.
