    Least Tolerant: Educated White Liberals

    Everybody, sorry I’ve been out of touch all day. I had to go out of town unexpectedly today, and have been away from the keys. One of the nice things about this blog is when I don’t post when people think I should, folks start writing to ask if I’m okay. Some good news: in February, this here blog received over one million unique visitors — the twelfth month in a row we’ve done this. Overall, TAC had another great month as well. Thank you!

    “I think God, in creating man, somewhat overestimated his ability.” ― Oscar Wilde
    “You can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.” ― Anne Lamott
    “And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence” ― Bertrand Russell

    Educated urban whites tend to be overwhelmingly liberal. Maybe you were unaware of that?
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    I snatched the headline from the article's own link.

    Or, perhaps, he's arguing against yours.

    That doesn't, actually, answer his point; he's referring back to the paper, not the article.

    I'm aware of that, I'm simply saying from whence I got "my headline".

    I think I’d like to hold off judgement on a thing like that, sir, until all the facts are in. In the meantime we need to remember that we are brothers and not a gnat’s whisker would separate the poles of this super polarised moment, were we possessed of simply the same facts about the world. It comes down to who you trust to give you information. I hope you trust me as I trust you.

    But we both trust Rachel!


    I just trust her to do different things than you trust her to do.
