Greta Christina: “Why Are You Atheists So Angry? 99 Things That Piss Off the Godless”
Why are atheists angry? Is it because they're selfish, joyless, lacking in meaning, and alienated from God? Or is it because they have legitimate reasons to be angry—and are ready to do something about it?
Armed with passionate outrage, absurdist humor, and calm intelligence, popular writer and activist Greta Christina makes a powerful case for outspoken atheist activism, and explains the empathy and desire for justice that drive it. This accessible, personal, down-to-earth talk, based on her recent book, speaks not only to atheists, but to believers who want to understand the so-called "new atheism."
Why Are You Atheists So Angry? drops a bombshell on the destructive force of religious faith—and gives a voice to millions of angry atheists.
