Chelydra Bay Press, 2007 - 218 من الصفحات
What if a fed-up American atheist and "godless liberal" became a newspaper opinion columnist? This unique compilation answers that question, and demonstrates how an unapologetically secular perspective can go mainstream, reminding non-believers they're not alone, while simultaneously reaching a largely Christian audience. Exploring the power of "preaching to the converted," this motivating collection challenges other atheists, secularists, agnostics, and freethinkers to become vocal and involved in their own local media, adding a rational voice to the daily dialogue taking place in newspapers across the country. "A 21st Century Rationalist in Medieval America" is a collection of newspaper opinion columns, and other essays, written between 2002 and 2006. The subject matter includes: American politics, the media, religion, atheism, evolution and creationism, the Bush administration, science education, free will, gay marriage, religious conservatives, the Bible, morality, and the Iraq war.
