This afternoon, I did a little shopping with some birthday gift cards I had lying around. I feel it bears mentioning first that one of these gift cards was for Old Navy, where I bought a couple pairs of jeans TWO SIZES smaller than the rest of the jeans I own - the first time my pant size has gone DOWN in about six years. So, you know, yay me.
Anyway, the other gift card was for Barnes & Noble. I considered a few books critical of religion: Everything You Know About God Is Wrong, Jim and Casper Go to Church, and The Year of Living Biblically, but I’ve been doing a lot of that kind of reading lately: God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, The God Delusion, and currently, The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason. I like to be able to take both sides of an argument and play devil’s advocate, and it’s always good to know what the enemy is up to, so I decided to get What’s So Great About Christianity. I feel dirty for supporting Dinesh D’Souza with another book sale, but at least it wasn’t my money. Chances are slim that I’ll agree with anything he has to say, but I’m willing to consider his opinions, at least. Let it never be said that I’m close-minded.
I’ll write up a review in a few weeks when I finish it.
