Anyone believing that politics should be run by religious ideology should first read this book. It is a great expose' on what we are not being informed of about our faiths and their influence on the world. Many, I think, would be surprised at what is being done in the name of their faith. Very poignant facts are revealed to illustrate how religious thought in public life are poisoning the very foundations of our social structure and how religion is not held accountable when their own practices violate universal standards of decent behavior. Whether your a fundamentalist Christian, an extreme Muslim or an ultra conservative Jew, the things being done in the name of God these days is nothing short of evil and sacrilegious and Mr. Hitchens does a wonderful job of calling these supposed men of God out onto the carpet. A must read for any self critical thinker and a tour de force for all humanists.
