There is an assault on intellectuals going on in this country and it is terrifying. Suggesting for one moment that rationality be primary in public policy making, and checking religion/emotion at the door, results in a slur of insults and degradation rivaling bigotry. It is as if having a college education and being concerned with what goes on in the world is a BAD thing these days. WHY!?!?!?

Way out here in the Mid-West, we are surrounded by people who REFUSE to look past the end of their nose. They are pummeled with misinformation left and right and subscribe to people who claim to have the answers because they 'studied' theology - an 'academic field' that is hardly academic at all, considering it is entirely based off superstitious claims.

Religious privileging must come to end. It is turning our children into zombies who cannot think for themselves.
