Attack of the Theocrats Now Available in Paperback

Sean Faircloth‘s book Attack of the Theocrats! How the Religious Right Harms Us All — and What We Can Do About It is available in paperback beginning today!

If you haven’t read it yet, it’s a great guide for building a more secular America.

If you’re unfamiliar with him, Faircloth used to be a state legislator in Maine, the executive director of the Secular Coalition for America, and he’s currently the Director of Strategy and Policy for the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science.

    I think we should all submit requests to our local libraries that they carry books like this.  I can’t find hardly any of the books recommended on this site at my local library here in the south.

      He is a great speaker, but he speaks in such generalities about believers as to make his work of little practical use.  I have talked to plenty of believers about some of these things, and they often say “yeah, but I’m not like that.”

         Very interesting. I find his speaking style to be the exact opposite of generalities.

        In fact, of all the atheist speakers, I have always considered Sean Faircloth’s particular style to be giving a steady stream of specific case after specific case showing example after example after example of religion causing specific harm to specific people.

        He’s a great story teller exactly because of the specifics he gives. I see that as the opposite of generalities. In fact, I think most believers would end up agreeing with him that the cases he cites do indeed show the harm of religion, and while the believers might respond that they themselves don’t do that, they may side with us on there being more limits on religion in government.

    I’ve had this on my nook for months…maybe I’ll finally get around to reading it (after I finish NonBeliever Nation, which I’m almost done with).

    Sean Faircloth is a fantastic public speaker. 
    If his book is even half as good as his lectures then it will be well worth reading.
