Christians and Conservatives Are Not the Ones Being Really Stupid and Ignorant
By Dr. Tom Snyder with Dr. Ted Baehr
Still basking in the joy of Resurrection Day (or “Easter” to those of you who don’t know that the Vicarious Atonement, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the real reason for the current holy season), it strikes us how often atheists, alleged skeptics, liberals, leftists, fascists, Neo-Marxists, and other pseudo-intellectual elitists like to malign Christians and conservatives for being stupid and ignorant.
One of the most common, but dishonest and disingenuous, ploys of these Anti-Christian bigots is to take a fringe group (like the tiny militia members the FBI arrested in late March) and lay the blame at the feet of Christianity or conservatives.
It’s important to note, however, that these kinds of malicious, lamebrain labels are coming from people who believe that Mozart and Moses descended from monkeys and that increasing taxes and spending and re-distributing wealth will create jobs and prosperity in the private sector and not just the government.
Of course, we can all agree that Christians and conservatives, not to mention Republicans, are not completely immune from stupidity and ignorance. Or even prejudice and bigotry.
But, thousands of years of history, experience, research, objective science, and rational thought clearly demonstrate that Christian and conservative thinkers are among the most intelligent, insightful, and reliable thinkers in history.
Especially when compared to what passes for “intelligent” thought among today’s atheists, evolution “scientists,” skeptics, and leftists.
