Letter to a Christian Nation

I was just reading these quotes from Letter to a Christian Nation by Sam Harris that someone sent me the link to on Twitter (thanks @Sheamus!), and the last bit really made me laugh so I thought I'd share it with you.

"The president of the United States has claimed, on more than one occasion, to be in dialogue with God. If he said that he was talking to God through his hairdryer, this would precipitate a national emergency. I fail to see how the addition of a hairdryer makes the claim more ridiculous or offensive."

I hope he was writing about George W Bush rather than Barack Obama. I can easily imagine George Bush talking to his hairdryer, and the hairdryer being his intellectual superior.
