    God and His Demons PDF ↠ God and PDF \ demons mobile, God and ebok, God and His Demons KindleThe New Atheist bandwagon must be getting terribly overloaded as culture critic Michael Parenti adds to the heap with God And His Demons another attack on religion's many evils If one wishes to work in such an overloaded category you should at least have something substantially new to say least it look like simply a vulgar effort to cash inSadly Parenti covers little new terrain often

    God and His Demons PDF ↠ God and PDF \ demons mobile, God and ebok, God and His Demons KindleVery enjoyable as it supplies multiple examples of the hypocrisy of religions and importantly religious figures many of whom are just money lusting charlatans Warning the commentary is biting and may be offensive to some readersSolid five no uestion So good I am looking forward to

    God and His Demons PDF ↠ God and PDF \ demons mobile, God and ebok, God and His Demons KindleThis is an unflinching and scathing indictment of organized religion It is also a call for tolerance and factual narrative of where religion fails in this regard A uote from the book sums it up well I do not much care whether people believe in one god or another or none at all Of interest is knowing how decent they might be as people and how committed they are to social justice egalitarian reform personal freedom and environmental sustainability

    God and His Demons PDF ↠ God and PDF \ demons mobile, God and ebok, God and His Demons KindleThis book is a great book to help you think outside of the religion box and see the negative aspects of what religion does to society Some uestions are posed that are truly great uestions we should be asking ourselves about God and religion However this is a book where facts may have been taken out of context for the purpose of making the point of the book and that must be remembered The point is to make the reader uestion religion and all that comes with it for the horrors it can cause by using many examples of terrible things being done in the name of religion

    God and His Demons PDF ↠ God and PDF \ demons mobile, God and ebok, God and His Demons KindleI read this for my Sociology of Religion class It isn't the type of book I would recommend unless you are studying religion or sociology Parenti is a critical theorist and if there is a problem within a religious group he will let you know He claims that he is not trying to push atheism on the reader but he is In a way it was good for me to be able to see how critical theorists work and it was good to see the problems that do exist It is a hard book to read simply because it is so negative
