A Journey Out of Religion with Stops for Light Refreshment Along the Way
“In missile silos from Omaha to Leningrad fingers were poised over launch buttons. American bombers were flying provocatively close to Soviet borders, Russian submarines were running threatening forays into American waters – but inCrumlin, with the threat of nuclear annihilation just hours away … Father Cullen’s only concern was a pre-emptive strike against the sins of the flesh.”
With this threat of Armageddon begins the explosively funny and utterly irreverent journey of "Faithless". From 1950s Dublin to Istanbul’s Blue Mosque, it charts both a personal and social history of religion’s conflict with secular thought. With deeply philosophical ponderings on triangular sandwiches, psychotic chickens, comely maidens and a partially cremated cat, Tony Philpott deftly, and hilariously, packs his luggage, heads to the departure area of doubt, and finally emerges in the godless arrivals hall of atheism.
Many will be offended, some may be perplexed, a few could develop stigmata – but all will laugh.
