Ann Coulter is Right

Whatever you may think about her aggressive writing style, the main point in Ann Coulter’s new book “Godless: The Church of Liberalism” is dead on target.

The only surprising thing is that so many people are surprised to see liberalism as a religion.  American liberalism is simply our sect of the international religion of socialism, and liberal-socialists have openly proclaimed since the early 19th century that atheistic, materialistic socialism is a religion.

American Social Gospelists in the late 19th and early 20th centuries declared that Christianity had failed and was being displaced by socialism.

Liberal-socialism has all the elements of other religions: prophets, sacred writings, and a catechism of social justice that promises salvation and perfection (here on earth) of humanity.
