Bookforum Omnivore - The End of Religion?

This collection of links from Bookfoum's Omnivore offers some interesting reading material, including the interview with Sam Harris (in Tablet Magazine) that I posted the other day. Also worth reading is Slavoj Zizek's rather subdued (for him), "If there is a God, then anything is permitted."
