Belief in God is one thing. Belief in strict adherence to a specific religious dogma is another. Religion holds the power of truth and beauty, and the power to distort and destroy. Mostly it's used to exert power and control. I worship liberty.

There is no liberty without God. You are in chains goat without a redeemer.

Man is in need of restraints that protect him from his own ignorance. Don't blame God for what man does.

Does that include the freedom to have sex with children?

That would violate the child's freedom, so no.

Only the invalid worships health. Only the slave worships liberty. Liberty is a necessary condition to the dignity of a person, but it is not its totality, and confusing any one thing with the totality will lead to disasters down the line.

I think that this is unfair to religion. I agree that there is a whole lot of controlling and powergrabbing going on in the name of religion, but I think that this is only a tiny part of the total amount of religion that is going on. The vast majority of the faithful do not abuse religion, but we therefore don't notice them.

It's kind of like responsible gun owners....

Some say the third time is a charm. So I've tried to be a little more charming in my third book than I was in my first two. Make no mistake about it, though: I'm glad to have written two hard-hitting books on life in the academy. The first was needed to expose the intellectual shallowness of the campus diversity movement. Another book was needed to chronicle the absurdity of campus feminism. But my latest book is written from the heart.

I see kids going off to college and losing their faith every year. I also see them...
