"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 book yet, to focus solely on the Left's attacks on ou

When it comes to politics…I despise BOTH political parties. I’m an equal opportunity hater, and I think the whole lot are terminally infected with greedy, contemptible, hypocritical scumbagginess.

About the only thing I detest more than the politicians themselves, are the self-appointed, idiotic, partisan flamethrowers who have nothing...NOTHING...to contribute to the discussion of real issues facing the country. It's all just vitriol, sound-byte platitudes and ceaseless aggression.

This is quite possibly the most disgusting work ever written or published.

Republicans should be ashamed to even have someone like Ann Coulter in their party. The book makes nothing but personal attacks to demean the Democratic Party and make Liberalism look like devil worship. If being liberal is that bad and wanting freedom from religion is so terrible, maybe Ann is the one who doesn’t belong in America: the nation built on Religious freedom and choice.

If I could punch one person in the world right in the face, it would definitely be Ann Coulter. She is a crazy, racist bitch. Also, the book sucked in case you were wondering.

I once spent about half an hour at a Palo Alto bookstore leafing through this. Friends often tease me about my willingness to read anything, but it literally made me feel ill. I'm trying to recall other things I've come across that have had a similar effect. The only one I can come up with right now is Wikipedia's description of the notorious viral video 2 Girls 1 Cup. I would guess that I'm less likely to watch that than I am to finish Godless, but it's close.

It's very sad to consider that the

It should be titled "Brainless" - more apt in the case of Ann Coulter.

Whew! I didn’t think I would survive the ordeal of reading this book.

Ann Coulter is a prominent right-wing media personality in America. However, it is not her conservative views which get her attention: it is the outright hatred she has for the “other”, and the purposefully rude way in which she expresses her opinion, that does it. Liberals hate her, and she revels in it.

I read this book to see whether Ann is as black as she’

Recommends it for: People who liked The Da Vinci Code
This book is about as accurate as The Da Vinci Code, and it would be really offensive if it wasn't so hilarious. Mostly because it's funny when you glimpse the inner workings of the severely mentally handicapped. I heard some strange things when I taught special ed., but nothing comes close to the fantasy world Ann Coulter thinks she lives in. But what do I know, I'm a woman.

If you like unbridled opinion with a nasty and sarcastic twist this is the book to read. After hearing all the denounciations of the book, I had to read it and I thoroughly enjoyed, particularly the attack on the New Jersey widows. But not only that, Ann clearly makes a strong argument that liberals have created their own religion, which is why they are so hostile towards other form of organized religion. If there is anything that bothers the Left more than anything is when the masses turn to or ...more

My very first Ann Coulter book...I find her outrageously hilarious. If I had more guts I'd be as outspoken as she is. Her books, including this one, are generally self-absorbed and depreciative of anyone not a conservative, but therein lies the humor. Liberals take themselves way too seriously...Coulter takes advantage of their sensitive feelings and uses their public outrage to fuel her own popularity and book sales. Smart woman.

Ann Coulter, Godless: The Church of Liberalism (Crown, 2006)

I would like to be able to review Ann Coulter's newest tome, Godless: The Church of Liberalism, fairly. However, I find myself unable to do so because Coulter's entire premise is a ludicrous, but increasingly common, fallacy: the equation of conservatism with orthodox religion (specifically, in this case, Christianity, though I've often heard Joe Lieberman, an orthodox Jew, described as conservative as well). I'm not sure how this odd d

Same old same old from our favorite horse faced ultra conservative Ann Coulter. When she's not shrieking the usual conservative rhetoric (liberal want to kill babies, outlaw Christianity, force mass gay marriages etc...) she's accusing liberal of betraying the nation, colluding with Communists and plotting the downfall of the USA. I'm not sure what's worse, that people actually like this garbage or having to look at that grotesquery on the cover.

Coulter's brash, irreverent style would make her a cultural icon if she were on the left. But even liberals ready to bust a gasket over her views will not be able to hold back a laugh now and then.

This one is pretty simple: If you are conservative, Republican, or extremely open-minded, you MIGHT like it...If you're Democrat or a liberal, you're going to hate it...but for God's sake, I hate reading reviews were someone didn't even READ the entire book. I read it from cover to cover.

Ann Coulter has a really snarky sense of humor that can come off as condescending and annoying, sometimes. The reason why some conservatives tolerate her is because when she's funny, she's hysterical, but when s

Shelves: politics
It was very...interesting. As a democrat and a liberal, I wanted to find out what fuels the other side. As content goes, it was very poor, as she made blanket statements and backed up her work with only a few examples which could be easily refuted. Her arguements were devoid of logic, not due to content but due to the way she argued. A high school debater could have made her book look like a fool.

Coulter carefully and systematically lays out her idea that liberalism rejects the idea of God and reviles people of faith, but liberalism bears all the attributes of a religion. Coulter reveals the Church of Liberalism, showing 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 infal ...more

What can I say. I love Ann Coulter. If you can take the tongue-in-cheek sarcasm as just that--sarcasm, Ann's arguements are worth the effort. Great read. I couldn't put it down until I had finished it.

Ok, so I love Ann Coulter, I’ve said it. Abrasive and politically incorrect in the extreme, she calls it like she sees it and, if you can get past her confrontational style to her message, she is usually right on the money. (no pun intended…) This is the best of her myriad books and plainly elucidates the core values (or lack thereof) in the ongoing conservative v. liberal philosophical debate. You really ought to read this book, even if you think you can’t stand the author. You may discover tha ...more

Although some of the things she says are a little caustic, I thought it was informative. The democrats are very against teaching Christianity in schools, but they have replaced it with their own religion and set of values. Instead of teaching creationism, they demand teaching evolution (which many atheistic scientist agree is not supported by scientific evidence.) There were a lot of other things that were worth reading.

Really enjoyed it, but I am a fan. I knew all the basics of the material Coulter covers (what conservative religious person isn't familiar with the usual attacks?) but I *still* learned something new and still found myself riveted. Preaching to the choir, maybe, but enjoyable!

I noted that this book is one "they" listed as one of the worst. Sorry...can't agree. Yes it skewers a lot of sacred cows, yes Ann throws bombs...but she usually makes sense. And, she's funny doing it. Everyone has a right to their opinion political and otherwise, don't let it color your opinion as to quality. For what it is this is a well written book. Even if a lot of people would like to burn it.

My advice? Don't decide against reading a book due to someone else's opinion...take a chance, deci

Liberalism is a religion, and a whacked out one at that, but conservatism is a rational school of thought?
name calling is humor and/ or political commentary?

and what's up with Ann's hate for the 9-11 widows? How very Christian of her and compassionate conservative of her.

I'm really baffled what the appeal of this woman is.

Giving another one star review to Ann Coulter''s Godless is probably just another example of sadistic sodomistic necrophilia (that's beating a dead horse) yet anything to lower the general review rating to a more realistic level (like...maybe...one) should be appreciated.

Bottom line. Coulter reveals herself in this book to be petty, vicious, totally devoid of any real ability to understand anything of a scientific nature, and totally unwilling to have an open mind about anything outside her own
