In Part 1, Parenti talks about child rape by the clergy and the coverup thereof. About the oppressive Buddhist theocracy in pre-Communist Tibet. About Biblical sins we ignore (e.g., "usury") while inventing others (gay marriage). And he rebuts creationism, Intelligent Design, ... and some of the conclusions of Darwin.
Part 2, he discusses the alliance of the Church, the nation-state, and economic power; ... FEMA's enlisting the clergy to preach obedience to authority; ... and the Christian Right's takeover of the Air Force Academy. He praises 2 16th-century Christians--Montaigne and Giordano Bruno. And explains why, despite everything, he's not an atheist.
