In this tightly reasoned commentary on the state of religion in America, Sam Harris pulls no punches in his arguments to members of the Christian Right on all matters moral and political, noting Old Testament law (death for adultery, homosexuality, disobedience to parents etc.), and contrasts this with, for example, the complete non-violence of Jainism. Harris argues that the reliance on dogma can create a false morality, which is divorced from the reality of human suffering and the efforts to alleviate it.
