Cognitive Dissonance

"Democracy! Bah! When I hear that I reach for my feather boa!" - Allen Ginsberg

Many of the tribal reservations today remain mired in poverty and alcoholism because many native Americans continue to cling to the darkness of indigenous superstition instead of coming into the light of Christianity and assimilating into Christian culture… Sadly, this column will likely generate a firestorm of nuclear proportions among wingers on the left rather than the thoughtful reflection the thesis deserves… Even worse, the reaction will likely obscure the sobering lesson for today. America in 2011 is as guilty of “abominations” as the native American tribes we replaced. We have the blood of 53 million babies on our hands through abortion. We have normalized sexual immorality, adultery, and homosexuality, all horrors in the eyes of God, and are witnessing a surge in incest, pedophilia and even bestiality in our midst.

American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer on American Indians and religious superiority. AFA is supported by numerous Republican politicians, including Newt Gingrich.

I don’t even know what to say here. Thoughtful reflection? Racist theses require being considered with thoughtful reflection? There is no sobering lesson to be learned from Fischer’s thesis - only that this kind of hatred still exists.
