Ignernt an' Proud of It, Part Deux

Christopher Hitchens neatly nails the arrogant ignorance of Sarah Palin and the Christianista wing of the GOP here . Best quote:

Those who despise science and learning are not anti-elitist. They are morally and intellectually slothful people who are secretly envious of the educated and the cultured.

I remember, in the comments section of a blog I frequently read, one of the Christianista respondents whining about he and his fellows in the amen choir being portrayed as "ignorant." Well, as Forest Gump's mama pointed out, stupid is as stupid does.

Christopher Hitchens is one of those atheists whose observations help keep us faith-based folks honest.

He's hit the nail on the head! Personally, as a Christian Science-loving but not as learned as I would like person I can't understand why people don't want to find out how things work, what makes us tick etc. etc.

Why else did God give us brains?
