Ann Coulter pulls no punches whether she's debating a liberal on television or writing about "the church of liberalism." There's nothing new here for most conservatives that they haven't already heard or said, but Coulter has a unique way of driving home a point. The narrative is almost a stream of consciousness where she says (writes) whatever is on her mind at the moment. Her points are usually valid and on point but she occasionally strays from the sectional topic. If you've enjoyed other Coulter books you'll like this one. ( )

I read this book specifically because I disagree so strongly with some of the things that come out of Coulter's mouth, and I wanted to know why I felt that way. What I came away with was a greater understanding on how we perceive and interpret information depending on which "side" we're on. While Coulter isn't dumb, and she's obviously done her homework on the issues in the book, she's still a bully who revels in cheap shots and beating a dead horse. Godless is little more than a three-hundred page rant about how liberals are dumb and reactionary crybabies who suppress the poor conservatives every chance they get. I don't know about that, but at least the information is solid, like the chapters on education and stem-cell research. However, I could have done without the final four chapters all covering evolution; one would have sufficed.Also, Coulter is easier to handle if you don't take her too seriously. ( )

I liked it. Even when I disagree with the author - probably about 30% of the time, I respect that she has opinions and is willing to say them, especially since she's hated by so many people. That takes serious guts. Plus, she's snarky and sarcastic which is always a bonus. ( )

To question this author's inherited, self-righteous truths is nothing less than a sin and an affront to (her interpretation of) God, as the title implies. Snarky, sarcastic, intolerant and divisive, this diatribe seeks to ridicule alternative viewpoints on many of today's touchpoint issues that separate liberals from conservatives. There is no serious discussion of why she holds her views, other than that they should be self-evident to those of her persuasion. She clearly thrives on the shock value of her words, and portrays those outside of her value system as unpatriotic and unwelcome. Her message feels like a rallying call for conservatives to get serious and fall in line behind her. This book is a discredit to serious conservatives who should be able to empathize with outsiders whose views and values don't always align perfectly with those the author espouses. ( )

Conservative commentator observes that liberalism has all the trademarks of a religion without a divinity. Illustrates her analogy by examining the topics of abortion, crime, education, and bad science. Coulter criticizes ex-CIA employee Valerie Plame, war protester Cindy Sheehan, and the widows of the September 11, 2001, victims. ( )
