Appeared on “Hay-on-Sky” 24 May. Christopher Hitchins has some pretty strong views against religion. As far as he is concerned this man-made phenomena has been responsible for wars, sexual repression and has profoundly damaged humanity! Read an extract and decide for yourself.
"God Is Not Great" is the ultimate case against religion. In a series of acute readings of the major religious texts, Christopher Hitchens demonstrates the ways in which religion is man-made, dangerously sexually repressive and distorts the very origins of the cosmos. Above all, Hitchens argues that the concept of an omniscient God has profoundly damaged humanity, and proposes that the world might be a great deal better off without 'him'.
