This review is from: I Don't Believe in Atheists (Hardcover)
I've been an atheist most of my life and it always humors me when god-believers don't give atheists their due. "Only god-believers are allowed to judge atheists!" Christ Hedges is brilliant in so many ways, but not here. He argues against his own (straw man) view of atheists, and then attributes his view of atheism to recent popular atheists around the web writing books. But it doesn't stick because it really is the religion that lures people to do horrific things they never otherwise would consider (terrorism, forced genital mutilation, slavery, honor killings, murdering doctors, raping boys in churches for centuries, etc.). Last time I checked I didn't see the news headline where atheists were paying out billions of dollars for the cover-up and settlement of child rape cases going back to the 1970s. Check out Hedges' book, The World As It Is: Dispatches on the Myth of Human Progress for a much better use of his talents.
