Godless, the Church of of Liberalism

I just finished reading this book, and enjoyed it very much. I thought Coulter she did an excellent job of highlighting the hypocrisies and and down-right lunacy of the liberal mind-set. Here are some good quotes from the book:

“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.”

Liberalism requires taking so many things on faith that it amounts to a religion with “its own explanation for why we are here, its own gods, its own clergy. The basic tenet of liberalism is that nature is god and men are monkeys.”

Liberalism has “its own miracles, its own beliefs in the supernatural, its own churches, its own high priests, its own saints, its own total worldview, and its own explanation of the existence of the universe. In other words, liberalism contains all the attributes of what is generally known as ‘religion.’”

“Liberals’ creation myth is Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, which is about one notch above Scientology in scientific rigor. It’s a make-believe story, based on a theory that is a tautology, with no proof in the scientist’s laboratory or the fossil record—and that’s after 150 years of very determined looking. We wouldn’t still be talking about it but for the fact that liberals think evolution disproves God.”

I love the title of Chapter 9 called “Proof for How the Walkman Evolved into the iPOD by Random Mutation.”

“Nor are intelligent design scientists looking at things they can’t explain: Quite the opposite. They are looking at things they can explain but which Darwin didn’t even know about, like the internal mechanism of the cell, and saying, That wasn’t created by natural selection—that required high-tech engineering. By contrast, the evolution cult members look at things they can’t explain and say, We can’t explain it, but the one thing we do know is that there is no intelligence in the universe. It must have been random chance, or it’s not ‘science.’”

“Because of liberals druidical religious beliefs, they won’t allow us to save the Africans dying in droves of malaria with DDT because DDT might hurt the birds.”

“Liberals are more upset when a tree is chopped down than when a child is aborted. Even if one rates an unborn child less than a full-blown person, doesn’t the unborn child rate slightly higher than vegetation?”

“Water. Liberals are worried we’re going to run out of something that literally falls from the sky. Here’s an idea: Just wait. It will rain.”

“In the 1970s, Paul Ehrlich wrote the best-selling book The Population Bomb, predicting a global famine and warning that entire nations would cease to exist by the end of the twentieth century — among them England. “[I]t is now too late,” he wrote, “to take action to save many of those people.” In 2001 — despite the perplexing persistent existence of England — the Sierra Club listed Ehrlich’s Population Bomb as among its books recommended by Sierra readers. How many trees had to be chopped down to make the paper for all those copies of The Population Bomb?”

“Assuming you aren’t a fetus, the Left’s most dangerous religious belief is their adoration of violent criminals.”

Liberals say, “(w)e’re the only modern democracy with the death penalty. I think that should be treated as a selling point: “come to the United States for the economic opportunity, stay because we fry our Ted Bundys!”

“One year after Miranda, New York County district attorney Frank Hogan told the Senate Judiciary Committee that confessions in his district alone had fallen from 49 percent to 14 percent solely as a result of the Miranda decision. Federal Judge and former law professor Paul Cassell has calculated that one decision alone, Miranda, has led to the release of about 100,000 violent criminals a year. Instead of hanging their heads in shame and trying to make up for the needless suffering and death inflicted on America by their policies, liberals are proud of releasing violent criminals.”

“At private schools, 80 percent of the personnel are teachers. By contrast, at public schools only about 50 percent of the personnel are actual teachers — most of the rest are cogs in the endless layers of machinery of the “education” bureaucracy. This would be like having 26 full-time coaches for a 26-man baseball team.”

“Between 1982 and 2001, spending on New York City Public schools increased by more than 300 percent, clocking in at $11,474 per pupil annually. Only Washington, D.C., that hotbed of educational achievement, spends more per student. By contrast, the average tuition for private elementary schools is less than $4,000 and around $6,000 for private secondary schools.”

“As Steven Guilbeault of Greenpeace explained, “global warming can mean colder, it can mean drier, it can mean wetter.” No set of facts can disprove the environmentalists’ secular religion. In 2004, former vice president Al Gore gave a speech on global warming in New York City on the coldest day of the year. Warm trends prove global warming. Cold trends also prove global warming. This is the philosophy of a madman.”
