← Richard Dawkins, the Protestant atheist

It didn't make any sense to me either. And I'm a theology graduate and a former Catholic to boot (and boot very hard indeed some might say).

I had to read an awful lot of guff like this whilst an undergrad. On the bright side it helped me to see the emperor's balls.

However, theologians of a certain bent will be calling this a victory.

"You see - they think they're so clever yet they can't understand our obfuscation. They're only atheists because they don't understand."

Whether or not believers understand it is irrelevant. As long as they can be assured that some clever chap knows where those no-good atheists are going wrong, it hardly matters if they personally cannot refute our arguments. They'll have faith that this fraud knows what he's talking about, even if they don't. Of course, Jackson doesn't know what he means either.

If the postmodern essay generator was subjected to a Catholic hostile take-over, it would sound an awful lot like this.
