America is Frightened
Forget what you read in the newspapers and magazines, see on television, or hear on the radio. Despite what the pundits, politicians, bureaucrats and security experts say, an international network of terrorists is not poised to attack America again. It doesn’t have to anymore.
Coming in October
In America, one is expected to smile deferentially while listening to the nonsense parroted by the religious: that the Ten Commandments are the basis of morality, that all religious people mean well, and that you can’t be good without God.
The rules of “polite society” also dictate that one should not question the content, logic and instructions of the holy books. And further — so as not to offend the delicate sensibilities of the publicly pious — the nonreligious are obliged to pretend that they too have an imaginary friend who listens to their prayers.
Well, we shouldn’t do that anymore. No one has the right not to be offended — especially when his or her alleged moral code is itself offensive.
The number of people who have abandoned religion for reason is growing, and they are building a community based on a fundamental respect for all people that is founded on a self-evident moral imperative that predates every religious doctrine.
It is the duty of the nonreligious to confront theobabble head-on. This book dissects and debunks religious malarkey one fantasy at a time: that a god created the universe and takes an active role in its operation; that his “only begotten son” Jesus walked and preached on this earth; that people of all religions can “coexist”; and that atheists are inherently evil. This book further demonstrates that those who follow the dictates of their faith most fervently pose the greatest menace to civilized society.
Verily I say unto you: The abandonment of religion will make the world a happier place. People are better without God. And it is the moral duty of the nonbeliever to hasten religion’s demise through an uncompromised and well-informed blasphemy.
Beginner’s Guide to Blaspehemy will be available as a paperback and in a variety of e-books in early October.
