"Why mess around with Catholicism when you can have your own customized religion?" Fed up with his parents' boring old religion, agnostic-going-on-atheist Jason Bock invents a new god -- the town's water tower. He recruits an unlikely group of worshippers: his snail-farming best friend, Shin, cute-as-a-button (whatever that means) Magda Price, and the violent and unpredictable Henry Stagg. As their religion grows, it takes on a life of its own. While Jason struggles to keep the faith pure, Shin obsesses over writing their bible, and the explosive Henry schemes to make the new faith even more exciting -- and dangerous. When the Chutengodians hold their first ceremony high atop the dome of the water tower, things quickly go from merely dangerous to terrifying and deadly. Jason soon realizes that inventing a religion is a lot easier than controlling it, but control it he must, before his creation destroys both his friends and himself.

"I spent the most of the first half of my life believing in Christianity and regarding belief in God as an essential component of human existence," George Ricker says. "I've spent the last 30 years trying to understand why I ever thought that way. This book is about how and why that process occurred. It's also about the danger posed to our democratic society by fundamentalist religion." Godless in America is a testimonial about the advantages of life without gods and religions. It's also a no-holds-barred look at some of the problems with both concepts. Written in a style that is conversational, yet provocative, it is a candid assessment of the real culture war being fought in America today: the attack being waged by the Religious Right on the values of personal freedom, democratic government, and the necessity for all Americans to be treated as equals before the law and by their government. At times humorous, at times outrageous, Godless in America treats religion and religious concepts as ideas that should be evaluated with the same standards used to evaluate all other ideas and concepts, not from the privileged position claimed by so many of a religious persuasion.

Marked by a madman on a killing spree, a young girl relates the sordid tale of a convent possession from the confines of her room in a mental health institution. Why? She was asked by the Devil. She sets the stage in seventeenth century France, where a priest was burned for witchcraft, namely for causing the possession of the local Ursuline sisters. Was this alleged possession and its treatment so different from the experiences of our narrator at the hands of modern psychiatry? Not in the mind of the patient where the witch hunter and the doctor become one. Rachel Summers takes a questionable chapter in the history of the Church and turns it upside-down in the hopes that a different angle will reveal a different past. Part Two of the Mission Maligned series, Godless is a tale of the Other in confrontation with society. Summers tasted this confrontation first-hand inside the Ivory Tower where she received degrees in History, Philosophy, and Religious Studies.

The godless Billy has been awakened by an Angelic Soft White Light. All he can remember, is a fight between several Hellmen sent here from Hell. A mortal who fought an immortal combat between combatants for life and death on the mean streets of earth. Police secure the area, drag dead bodies toward shore one after the other. These Evil Beings slowly vanish before the eyes of the Law in a body of water on a bed of soft wet sand that lies before the faces of many eyes including those of the Law? Billy rises from his home in the ground. Graveyard rats and crows lie dead at his feet. He sees he has return to finish a mission in life after he died. Without knowing why he return to life nor what his mission once was or will be he slowly wakens in a graveyard beneath a blanket of dark? The Devil unleashes an army of Demons from the same graveyard that rats and crows fed on after dead bodies decomposed in the ground. These tiny mouth meat eaters dig down deep into the black earth for a late night snack sometimes. They return to trees and holes in the earth to be close to the dead. A smell of rotting meat waits for them each. Tiny morsels of human flesh that they find irresistible drew them closer with every sniff toward the ground where the dead lay. Dead meat that made their tiny little feet move in joy, both black tiny eyes twinkle and sparkle. He return to Earth to combat those that defy his purpose, his cause and his reason in life. I will raise the dead if I must in a fight to free humans from the wicked, darkness. I will return them to the ground where they belong in hell with a being that they call father of darkness. Scientist know something Evil Lives in a Cave beneath the earth. If I find someone or something that God Dropped from Heaven on Humans. I Hope I will not be alone when I come across a Beast that dared The Heavens. God Help Us in our moment of need! You too human! You were Right Mister! God Be With Us and you? A horde of female angels rise from the dark beneath earth at the end. After a horde of hell's henchmen fail. No human would ever dream this even possible. The dark will summon a demon from hell to earth. A large beast draped in dark fiery smoke, surrounded by hyena besides a constant annoying laughter. An unholy ungodly beast that sat on a throne made of Human Soul, with a smile as big as a prehistoric raptor that waits for you! A dark being with a knack to eat human souls like fat people ate chocolate. A dark beast half man, half fiery creature, rose in a coat of flame, with eyes that sparkle, in black, orange, diamond color. He will stare back from the center of a ball of flames like he woke from bed in it. The only thing close enough to mankind in wings and legs. Wings with barely any skin on them left nor the will to fly. A dark angel with a heart to fight whoever or whatever tried to stop him from his duty to his father down in the dark deep depths in Hell. Ten Black goddesses will rise from an abandoned graveyard? The god of the dark will unleash these beauties on Mankind. A fault that Men will come to remember besides recognize after a look into the eyes of never ending yet fatal beauty. They will come with a name, rank and serial number like prisoners on earth. These will come from Hell. From a long, lost, forgotten prison in a world of evil.Women angels with beauty to die for and most men will! The only difference these beast of burden we’re given names by the Devil, Himself. Who commanded them after his Demon Warship Failed one to many times. He will wake them from a deep slumber that they fell into Millenniums Ago. They will be commanded to search and destroy Guardians? I mean Earth Guardians. Like Billy Seals! He will raise a guardianship full filled with guardians to combat an army of henchmen with his dying or last breath he claims?

The religion clauses of the First Amendment, which seem simple and clear, have been and continue to be controversial in their application. Church-state issues have never been more complex, controversial, and divisive than they are today. In this helpful and instructive book, Ronald B. Flowers explains clearly and concisely the intricacies and implications of Supreme Court decisions in the volatile area of church-state relations. This is an ideal primer for those Americans who have listened to the debates about what the Supreme Court has and has not said about the relationship between church and state, and where the boundaries between the two have been eroded. It is also ideal for use in the classroom, specifically in undergraduate courses in religion and the court, introductions to U.S. constitutional law, constitutional law and politics, and the Supreme Court. The book is also a helpful tool for pastors, clarifying contemporary church-state issues that impact their churches and parishioners directly and indirectly.
