The God Virus: How Religion Infects Our Lives and Culture (Audiobook) By Darrel W. Ray Ed.D., read by the author

The paradigm can explain the fundamentalism of your Uncle Ned, the sexual behavior of a fallen megachurch minister, the child rearing practices of a Pentecostal neighbor, why 19 men flew planes into the World Trade Center, or what motivates a woman to...
