My “Holy book” is the constitution of the United States. –commentor Michael J. Murray-Magill
Various bloggers like John C. Wright and LarryD noted the story of a UK man who got a court to recognize that his belief in man-made global war…err…climate change was equivalent to a religious belief and all the protections that go with it. Then Patrick Madrid linked this YouTube video (which you don’t have to watch):
If you opted not to watch, it’s boiler-plate anti-Catholicism worthy of Jack Chick. Well actually, to Jack’s credit, at least he occassionally gives concrete examples. They may be distorted and strawman examples, but least it’s something.
Anyway, what amused me was not the triumphalistic blather this video contains, but his hand-tipping in the description he provides with the video (my emphasis):
This video is the latest, and probably last, in my series about Catholic apologists. (I’m eager to finally stake this vampire and move on to my real passions, peak oil and sustainable living, and how evangelical Christians need to be part of the solution to the very pressing problems facing the world today.)
Mencius Moldbug originally turned me on to the possible connection between fundamentalism and modern progressivism. This looks like one more piece for the evidence pile.
