Sarah Palin: Proudly Ignorant, Anti-Rational

My favorite brick bat journalist Christopher Hitchens goes after Sarah Palin.

This is what the Republican Party has done to us this year: It has placedwithin reach of the Oval Office a woman who is a religious fanatic and a proud,boastful ignoramus. 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. And those who prate of spiritual warfare and demons are not just "people of faith" but theocratic bullies. On Nov. 4, anyone who cares for the Constitution has a clear duty to repudiate this wickedness and stupidity.

It shocks me when I read about her religious beliefs. Many sects of Christians believe the Book of Revelations. They think the world is coming to end with the Second Coming and that is a good thing.

Seriously, read it here. Random quote, Revelation 6, verses 13-14:

[13] And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.[14] And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

People really fucking believe this?


  1. Whom do Islamists hate more hard-core Christians like this or aethists/secularists? There needs to be a priority list somewhere.

  2. Good question. If I had to wager, I think they'd prefer the Christians types. An Islamist can't get to first base with a aetheist/secularist because they write the whole concept off as a joke. They don't belive in respecting any type of religion.

  3. Hey Fuck you. Palin rules!

  4. Brilliant quote from Hitchens
