H.L. Mencken on Religion - H. L. Mencken, S. T. Joshi (Editor)
No one ever argued more forcefully or with such acerbic wit against the foolish aspects of religion as H. L. Mencken (1880-1956). S. T. Joshi has brought together and organized many of Mencken’s writings on religion in this provocative and entertaining collection.
If anything was sacred to Mencken, it was the right to speak one’s mind freely, and many of his attacks are directed against those true believers who he felt tried to foist their beliefs on others to stifle independent thinking. For everyone who values freethought and sharp intelligence, this collection of articles by America’s premier iconoclast is a must. Amazon
