Silverman holds nothing back, arguing that religion is more than just wrong: it is malevolent and does not deserve our respect. We are fighting a war of ideas and it is the nonbeliever's duty to challenge the dominant narrative of religion. Examining the mentality, methods and issues facing the firebrand atheist, Silverman presents an overwhelming argument for his outspoken brand of atheism and reveals: All religion is cafeteria religion and all agnostics are atheists. American society grants religion a privileged status, despite the intentions of the Founding Fathers. Christian politicians have adversely (and un-Constitutionally) affected our society with regard to science, health, women's rights, and gay rights. People have rights, but beliefs do not. It is not "lslamophobia" to observe dangerous teachings in Islam. Fighting God is a provocative, unapologetic book that takes religion to task and will give inspiration to non-believers and serve as the ultimate answer to apologists.
