    The introduction of the opposition between power and violence, and the way that was treated, was excellent. The implication that D'Souza's book is making the left responsible for the violence against us as a way to excuse the right's violence is very good.

    Part of liberal religion is believing in God and also in the moral principle of self-actualization--believing that God wants you to find the purpose for which you were created and the thing only you can do. An interpretation of having one piece of paper in your pocket saying "The world was created for me" and another saying "I am but dust and ashes" is saying that you need God because you are not all that important. But God has given you the framework to be important and to be great. The D'Souza quote doesn't prove that liberals killed the belief in God in his view, because from most polls most Americans believe in God in some vague way. It may prove that liberals made people more skeptical about organized religion.
