Christopher Hitchens doesn't mince words nor beat around the bush. His latest book is called "God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything," and it looks like a doozy. I've not read any of his books before, but I plan to pick this one up. Slate is currently posting excerpts from the book, and for the most part I liked what I read so far. I've added this book to my Amazon.com wish list, and hope to pick it up soon.
Unfortunately, Wikipedia describes him as having a temporary alliance with neo-cons. Well let's hope that this new book of his focuses on atheism and steers clear of politics as much as possible. Neo-conservatism is very high on my political hate list.
