I'm wondering what the opinions are here of Ayaan Hirsi Ali.  I've finished her book 'Infidel' on audiobook, and enjoyed it thoroughly.  I think atheists are really the only ones in any position to critically examine a religion without hypocrisy because we can avoid the 'well your religion is just as absurd/violent/sexist as ours' argument.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is the closest I come to acknowledging a goddess.
Time for me to  read her work.
I personally think she's one of the bravest women I've ever heard of.
